At the beginning the AC was an ATARI-branded convention. However the convention is now opened to all computer brands of the 80’s & 90’s. Amigamaniacs, Amstradalcoholics, MSX eaters and other are more than welcome to celebrate, exchange, debate, play, code and more during a week-end.
Two major activities:
One speed coding party, teams from different countries on different machines will have to code a game around the TETRIS theme. Please contact us for more information.
Free-play as usual lots of computer and gaming systems of the 80’s and early 90’s will be at your disposal; from the VCS 2600 to the Jaguar, from the commode 64 to the Amiga 1200, from CPC-128 to the GX-4000, and much more. Take a place in a journey to the numerous hours of your youth, revive all the victories, failures, joys and frustrations that have made your most precious memories.
But the AC is also the occasion to bring your favorite machine in order to present it, repair it or to improve it. The Retro-gaming Connexion team will always have a place for you and your dream machine.
We are looking forward to welcome you.
