Welcome to episode 92 of the UK’s No.1 Retro Gaming Podcast. In this episode, Sam (mrsid), Steve (press play on tape) and Paul (the drisk) chat through the history of gaming powerhouse Psygnosis. This is the follow up to our History of Ocean podcast and similar to that, we chat about key games, milestones in the companies history and have some amazing listener contributions. If that wasn't enough, we have even produced a History of Psygnosis PDF for you to download which includes loads more detail. Huge thanks to Paul for putting this together. Enjoy! View it here: https://docs.google.com/file/d/0Bzvd4KYph8BNUkZla1huWjJqdmM/edit Also, don’t forget to enter our competition to win a copy of Donkey Kong on the C64. All you have to do is email sam@retroasylum.com the answer to this question and I will randomly select a name out of the hat at the end of the month. Question: In Donkey Kong what is the name of Mario’s girlfriend he is trying to save? Thanks to @aaronub4t for the kind donation of this game. Cheers Aaron! Big thanks to all our wonderful sponsors and to Phil Hockaday for the EPIC cover artwork!
