Main Events & Tournament Information


We all know that computer games are meant for fun and relaxation, but what about when you want to compete? There’s nothing better than taking your skills online against other players from around the world. They’re bringing back some of these classics – like Unreal Tournament 1999 which was one of the most popular events at last year’s event!

It doesn’t matter if it is Sensible Soccer or any other retro multiplayer greatness; they have something there worth playing with others over. It’ll make you feel right at home while still having an amazing time.

With games like jump mushrooms, shoot enemy spaceships, maze navigation, racing all manner of cars & boats – there’s always an exciting challenge waiting around every corner at this video game expo.

RetCon is the home of all your retro gaming needs! They’ve got a whole range of joysticks, now compatible with Pi 4 and more – including CD32 compatibility and improved C64 support too. 


The Greenford Community Centre is a place where you can come to meet hackers, gamers and YouTube stars from all over England! Andrew or Philip Oliver will be there in person on Saturday 18th June – they are two of Britain’s best known game developers who together have created some incredible video games like participating in developing pixels for consoles such as Nintendo 64 (with brother Christian), PlayStation 2 etc., creating iconic hits that we love playing today; making our childhood dreams come true while building up careers doing what they loved.
