The Pixel Games Story
Greetings fellow retro gamers, so I am Liam and was born in 1980, my first games consoles were an Atari 2600, then a ZX Spectrum 128k, Amiga 500, SEGA Game Gear, Master System, Mega Drive (Genesis), SNES, Amiga 1200 and many more. But my favourite will always be the Commodore Amiga, fabulous times!
So, this is how the Pixel Games story began, back in 2017 whilst browsing through Instagram, I found a lot of channels where people were sharing their passion for retro gaming. Sure, there were plenty of retro game lovers already out there in the world and I wanted to be part of that.
SO IT BEGAN…
I created my own Instagram channel @pixelgamesuk, it started as a very light hobby, posting once every few days. But as time went by, our followers grew. We started designing and posting game comparisons, many people love seeing their old favourites pitted side-by-side against each other.
In 2021, I started a shop offering retro game coasters, and after joining ETSY, this started to grow, thanks to you, our awesome customers, we have since added keychains and greetings cards.
Here we are today, having just launched our new website, and we have a lot of exciting retro game content coming, so keep checking in with us.
