This is a show about videogames, the people who play them and the people who make them. Each week, a guest on the show talks about the games that have shaped their life in one way or another. Games that have inspired them, games that forged connections with others and games that have soothed wounds. Checkpoints!
Today's guest is Jonathan Smith. Formerly of Tt games, who were responsible for the recent LEGO game renaissance, he is now co-director of the newly opened National Videogame Arcade in Nottingham. We talk Nimrod and MUD, Command & Conquer, Sleep is Death, Hyper Sports, Lego Star Wars and how Space Pants made him proud.
