Secondly, welcome to the Banyan Tree, a regular blog covering voyages through the forgotten worlds of gaming's past.
This website was born out of a genuine passion for the quirkier side of retro gaming. Retro gaming isn't a niche interest anymore. One glance at Ebay will teach you that painful lesson. It's a big business nostalgia trip that even Nintendo is now coming on board to, with the announcement of the NES Mini.
However, Obsolete Worlds isn't here to review Super Mario Bros for the 1000th time, as beloved as it may be to us. Instead our mission is to cover the unloved consoles and home computers of gaming's past, the defunct handhelds and warped cassette tapes of yesteryear. To document and preserve the forgotten software of these misunderstood devices and ensure that if people with similar interests want to google them and discuss them, they can find the information that they need and a place to do so with like-minded enthusiasts.
If you head on over to 'The Forgotten Abbey' you'll see that we've made a start with a quest to review and document every game released for three particularly unloved handhelds, the Timlex Megaduck, the Watara Supervision and the Timetop GameKing.
If you jump on over to the 'Off Licence' you'll find an ever expanding chronicle of knock-off hardware and curious clone systems. To start off, we've full system reviews of the GB Boy Colour and Game Theory Admiral, with a lot more content to come over the coming weeks.
Other sections are already planned and in the pipeline but in the meantime, stay tuned to this blog for regular updates and thanks once again for reading Obsolete Worlds.
