Stuart Ashen at Forbidden Planet Birmingham
Welcome to a world of games you never knew existed.
YouTube sensation Stuart Ashen is back with his second instalment of terrible old computer games you’ve probably never heard of… because what the world needs right now is to know exactly how bad Domain of the Undead for the Atari 8-bit computers was.
Attack of the Flickering Skeletons is even bigger than the original Terrible Old Games You’ve Probably Never Heard Of – this second excavation of gaming’s buried past will not only unearth more appalling excuses for digital entertainment, but also feature guest contributors and several special interest chapters not based around single specific games.
These are NOT the games you’ve heard of a million times in YouTube videos. This is a compilation of the truly dreadful and obscure. Dripping with wry humour and featuring the best, worst graphics from the games themselves, this book encapsulates the atrocities produced in the days of tight budgets and low quality controls.
Stuart Ashen (alias Ashens) is a comedy writer, actor and cult YouTube sensation. He has produced over 500 YouTube videos, including his hugely popular series TERRIBLE OLD GAMES YOU’VE PROBABLY NEVER HEARD OF, where he reviews the best of the worst tat that the world has to offer; including the most horrendous video games ever made and a host of other useless items that prove not-quite-fit for purpose.
He wrote the series Ashen’s Tech Dump for BBC Online Comedy and co-starred in Back Space with Karen Hayley. He’s also starred in a one-off remake of cult classic TV show Knightmare.
This event is likely to be very busy. We advise being early, and please be prepared to queue.
