"There is also a bonus retro feel with old Amstrad keyboards lining the wall in the pub's 'Computer Room'"


Looks like a 464 Plus in one of the pictures and possibly a PCW keyboard too...

Pffft... If you can't use the machines, and they are just nailed too the walls it's just plain stupid.

Three years ago called and wants it's news back.  :laugh:
Currently playing on: 2xCPC464, 1xCPC6128, 1x464Plus, 1x6128Plus, 2xGX4000. M4 board, ZMem 1MB and still forever playing Bruce Lee.
No cheats, snapshots or emulation. I play my games as they're intended to be played. What about you?

Which is still more relevant today than a hipster bar from 3 years ago that most likely closed down after about six months.  :laugh:
