RetroCollect FM - Retro Gaming Podcast - Episode 6: Interview With Stewart Gilray Of Just Add Water

RetroCollect-FM-Retro-Gaming-Podcast-Episode-6-Interview-With-Stewart-Gilray-Of-Just-Add-WaterJoining the RetroCollect Squad this month is our very first special guest, Just Add Water's Stewart Gilray. Having spent an odyssey in the gaming industry - since the days of floppy disks & cassette tapes - this gaming veteran has countless enticing stories to tell, all of which lead up to how he became an inhabitant of RuptureFarms.

For those unfamiliar with the name, you'll have experienced many of Stewart's past releases without even realising. Having spent many years working for the likes of Hewson Consultants, 21st Century Entertainment, and of course Just Add Water; games such as Marvin's Marvellous Adventure, Pinball Fantasies, Gravity Crash and the more recent Oddworld titles have all been blessed by this British gaming icon.

But enough talking from us, Stewart has more than enough to say in the latest episode of RetroCollect FM. Discussing his colourful past, Stewart gets carried away by a wave of nostalgia discussing his early days including the ups and downs before arriving on his more recent ventures with Oddworld Inhabitants.

Was a great listen, thanks guys. It's strange because I just listened to this podcast today and it was only a few weeks ago that I had sparked up Marvin's Marvellous Adventure on the E-UAE Emulator.

I owned the Marvin game on my A1200 back in the day and initially took me a while to get into it, but after a while I loved it, so much so I wrote to the publishers saying what a great game I thought it was and they wrote back and sent me a Marvin T-Shirt as well, I was "well chuffed".

Great interview.
