Game on - Retro gaming exhibition

If like me you have a career connected with the 'digital-world' in some way - and you are around about 40 years old - then you probably have fond memories of the computer games from the 1980s and 90s.

Currently at The Life Science Centre Newcastle the Game On 2.0 focuses on these games. Loads of games you can play and some behind the scenes stories and concept artwork. Some photographs below...
