Neil “RetroManCave” Thomas is well-known by the retro gaming and computing community, mostly by his YouTube channel.
Throughout the years, Neil has conducted many interviews on his YouTube channel – a series of videos entitled Retro Tea Breaks that help to tell the history of the video gaming industry for future generations.
Complementing the popular video series, Neil has selected his favourite interviews to be printed in a hardback book with a textured, foil-embossed cover, quality paper stock and premium finishing touches, including coloured head and tail bands in the spine of the book.
Yes, as you know or can guess, the book is on its Kickstarted campaign, which has been a common topic here for the past few days, since we are having such great projects happening. However, Retro Tea Breaks 1 is already funded by almost 10 times the initial target so it is not like Neil needs your money in order to go ahead with the publication. This is actually a heads-up so you don’t lose the opportunity to get your copy before the campaign is over this Thursday, August 13 2020 12:30 PM EDT.
This volume includes 12 very special conversations with:
- The Oliver Twins (British 8-bit pioneers)
- Al Lowe (Sierra, Video Game Developer)
- George ‘The Fat Man’ Sanger (Composer, Freelance/Lucas Arts)
- Bill Volk (Developer, Activision/Avalon Hill)
- Francois Lionet (Developer, STOS/AMOS)
- Rob Hubbard (Composer, C64 Maestro/Electronic Arts)
- Stoo Cambridge (Artist, Sensible Software)
- Jon St. John (Voice Over Artist, Duke Nukem 3D)

And – exclusive to the book – two new interviews with Chris Sawyer (Transport Tycoon, RollerCoaster Tycoon) and Ken Silverman (Build engine).
