Retro Survival

On 22nd Aug 2005 the publisher of 'Retro Gamer' magazine ceased trading,
owing its writers hundreds of £££s for months of work.

Some of those articles were published.

Some weren't.

Until now!

Retro Survival contains the missing features from the ill-fated Issue 19 of Retro Gamer, which never made it to print. This includes all of your favourite articles, along with entirely new content, plus a specially written foreword by everyone's favourite Teletext talking head, Mr Biffo.

There's also plenty of extra content including video files, news, a competition, letters section with interaction from the Retro Survival forum, and more of the spoof ads that livened up later issues of Retro Gamer.

Here is a more detailed list of contents:
