GCCC2017 – First Attraction Announcement

Following on from our first guest announcement earlier in the week, we’re eager to tell you what else we have in stock for 2017.

TeamGCCC are delighted to announce that we’ll be hosting the Retro Computer Museum at Granite City Comic Con 2017.

guest-portrait-retro-computer-museum The Retro Computer Museum is a registered charity dedicated to the benefit of the public for the preservation, display and public experience of computer and console systems from the 1960’s onwards.

Their main focus is on systems that were in use in the home and schools rather than big computer systems and mainframes of early computer development. They have systems ranging from the early Pong consoles through to the Sega and Nintendo console wars and the home computers of the ZX Spectrum, Commodore 64s and Amigas.

We’ll be hosting 20 separate machines over the weekend for everyone to relive fond childhood memories and experience gaming from a different era.
