Mega Mu­ral

Retro Gamer - - RETRORATED -

dear team,

When i first found out about retro gamer i im­me­di­ately sub­scribed late last year – and you haven’t dis­ap­pointed. i have this (slightly weird) rit­ual of smelling the in­side pages of your magazine when i open it as it re­minds me of the gam­ing mag­a­zines i would buy as a kid (nos­tal­gia and all).

in June’s edi­tion you touched on some­thing close to my heart, the Sega mega drive. i still re­mem­ber the time when i first saw a mega drive at my mate’s house (in Syd­ney, aus­tralia by the way)… it wowed me and i knew im­me­di­ately i needed to get one. Given it fol­lowed me from child­hood all the way into my teen years – whilst i have owned many con­soles – this one holds a very spe­cial place in my heart, so i re­ally ap­pre­ci­ated your ar­ti­cle and the great level of de­tail you went into putting it to­gether.

your ar­ti­cle in­spired me so much i fi­nally fin­ished my Sega wall ‘mu­ral’ in my apart­ment! nick Pro­danovic

we’re glad to hear you en­joyed the mega Drive fea­ture, nick. also, we like how you’ve dec­o­rated there! Drew es­pe­cially will ap­pre­ci­ate the pres­ence of spark­ster – as he’s a big lover of Rocket Knight. we’re all play­ers who want to share our pas­sion for clas­sic games, so thank you for shar­ing – it’s great to know we played any part in in­spir­ing some­thing cool like that.

We love th­ese bead sprites, backed with scenes from the games.
