Retrogaming for everyone!
Awesome Retro

Awesome Retro is a non-profit organization with the mission “retrogaming for everyone”. We add retrogaming to many events and bring equipment to organizations in the Netherlands and surrounding countries.

We are a volunteer-driven organization that manages to impress large audiences by delivering great retrogaming experiences for people of all ages. We visited dance festivals, musea, main stages, amusement parks, radio studios, gaming events, lan-parties, hacker congresses, schools and so forth.

A short impression is also viewable in our flyer. Browse the site for a list of available consoles, how to contribute and to see what great stuff we do.
