RetroCollect FM - Retro Gaming Podcast - Issue 15: Digitiser - Interview with Mr Biffo

RetroCollect-FM-Issue-10-DigitiserFor many retro gamers, the 90s was a wonderful era packed to the brim with exciting new developments and technological advancements. Despite the rise of the Internet and other forms of getting our gaming fix delivered daily, one dedicated service we all know and loved remained on the most basic form of communication still around - Teletext. Digitiser was ‘The World’s Only Daily Game Magazine’ and one that wasn’t afraid to push the boundaries every 24 hours.

To take a nostalgic look back at the days when we would glance upon pages and pages of neon-bright lo-fi text, RetroCollect decided to speak to the one who made all this possible, Paul Rose. Being in charge of the video game side of the information retrieval service, Rose filled the fantastic pages of Digitiser’s reviews and write-ups with risqué and surreal humour. While his quirky style and odd pixel illustrations may not have gone down well with the suits he worked for, Digitiser had amassed a huge readership of 1.5 million gamers over the decade it ran.

With more than enough stories to be telling, many of which surrounding Rose’s unusual characters he created, the RetroCollect FM hosts Chris, Tom, and Adam sit down to find out more about Digitiser and its recent comeback in blog form.
