The retro gaming business was launched at the end of August by Dan Atkins and his partner Catrin Griffiths.

Catrin says, “We started as an idea that Dan had – he is the true geek in the partnership! He had been collecting quite a few retro consoles over the years and wanted to do something with them.

“We saw that there was very little or anything similar out there and thought it best to make the most of that advantage while we had it.”
