The comeback lasted about a month, but thought I wanted to finish with some closing words and not just randomly ending on Age of Empires. What better way than doing that with Superfrog! The amazing platformer by Team17 that came out on the Amiga in the 90’s. If you want to read more about the story behind Superfrog and Team17, and other Swedish game devs, then you should read Svensk Videospelsutveckling (in Swedish). I’ve also written other books about video game history in Swedish, check them out here.
Who knows, some day I might update Daily Video Game T-shirt again, but for now it will be idle again. In the meanwhile, you can follow me on Twitter (mostly English) and Instagram (mostly Swedish, but hey, it’s photos). I also have a web page at martinlindell.com where I occasionally do deep-dives and notes on retro games and video game history.
The classic real-time strategy game Age of Empires is making a comeback with a new version and a remaster of the old game!
I play a lot of Pokémon Go. And to be honest I never played the original games very much as I were quite old when they came out in Europe and were into PC and PlayStation at the time. A couple of years before the game came out in Europe, I played the Japanese version, but being a RPG it was very hard to understand. So, I guess this t-shirt is not for me! 😉
The Last Ninja is an incredible cool old classic game. Ninjas was the thing back in the 80’s. The game was quite difficult and maybe doesn’t stand up today, but the music is still amazing.
The crazy and funny chaps at Retro Bit Bros is spotting the cool 80’s style.
It’s the t-shirt for this year’s convention of the annual retro game and classic computer fair Retrogathering in Västerås, Sweden.
