A Letter from Gareth



Hi all, it’s been an great ride for Retro 101 and one I hoped would continue for a long time into the future. We’ve had great support from both readers and developers and the site has been growing nicely. My first child was born on Friday the 11th of December and it soon became clear that everything was not as it should be.

My child is now very very sick with a rare and critical heart condition only seen in five children every year. As a result I can no longer act as Head Editor of Retro 101. One - because I don’t have the time and two - because at the minute it just isn’t that important.

My aim was always to create a fun site where people could think about retro games and newer games that brought back some good memories. I like to think the site did that to the best that it could.

I’d like to thank everyone for all their support and encouragement and I hope we will be back at some point. For now my life exists one day at a time down at the Southampton intensive care unit hospital accommodation and every day I’m here is another day my son is as well. At the minute that’s all that matters.

It’s been emotional.

Gareth
