As well as all the best retro gaming attractions, REVIVAL: Generation X will be focusing on the evolution of electronic entertainment experienced by gamers who got their first dose during the video game revolution that kicked off at the dawn of the 80’s. At double the size of 2017, the two major halls will each focus on a different period; the first will focus on the early days, with the dominance of the microcomputers and the golden age of the arcades. The second meanwhile will move into the 90’s, with the influence of the import market pushing the pursuit of the latest technology and the late resurgence of the arcades inspired by Japan!
RRE are also producing Dave Perry’s return to gaming media with the all-new show ‘GamesAnimal TV’ – a one-off special featuring elements of the 90’s gaming TV we all know and love, from news and reviews to location tours and of course, live challenges. A lucky few will get chance to take part in features with Dave himself or test their skills in the challenges being filmed and streamed live from the event itself!
