    45. Special: The future of the past

    Join the crew and an incredible lineup of guests, including Math (from the Game Gear motherboard reverse engineering), Roger (Super Tilt Bro), and Sean (VGS) for a speculative journey into where modern retro gaming is headed. Our guests share their personal stories and insights before we natter about hardware advancements, new software implementations, and new ways these two elements shake hands to enable the next generation of indie retro games for our beloved middle-aged consoles and microcomputers.

    From the technical advancements that could revive classic consoles to innovative software that pushes the boundaries of old platforms, our discussion spans a broad spectrum to try and predict the next generation of hardware modifications and software that breaks traditional boundaries.

    As we progress through the year and step out of our comfort zones, we take a closer look at very pixelated Atari 2600 titles like Fox Hunt Arena and Xanthiom 2600. Andy also gives the Gameboy a good go with Hunt the Gwumbus and Lee Caravallo’s Putting Challenge, which both prove to be more than meets the eye. We also touch on modern hits like Control, Domekeeper, and Psychonauts. But there's more to this episode than just games: cycling, dinosaur burgers, and talks about wealthy collectors also feature in the show!

    Fortunately we save him by talking about streaming our games to our devices, Yuzu and Nintendo and more D&D! Our retro-chats don't stop here so tune in and have fun!

Old is new again

I really enjoy listening to Andres and the crew talk about modern games on old platforms I used to play when I was growing up - you can begin to see what goes into making a game fun even those made recently. The interviews they have with developers are gold and inspiration to those wanting to get into game development, keep them coming!

Awesome podcast and not just games chat!

Thanks to the guys at new game old flame for entertaining me with this brilliant podcast! Love the chats about what you’ve been up to and the snacks info. I have fond memories of the Sega consoles and C64 in the 90’s and I love hearing about them on your show. Keep the episodes coming!

A Modern retro gaming retreat with snack delights!

New Game Old Flame is a delightful haven for retro gaming enthusiasts. Divided into three segments, the hosts take you on a journey through new games for classic platforms like NES, SNES, Commodore 64 and more, creating a soothing atmosphere that feels like a warm embrace. A standout feature is the first segment, where the hosts share what they've been up to. This part never fails to bring a smile and a laugh, adding a lighthearted touch to the show. Additionally, the recurring discussions about snacks adds a cozy element, making you feel like you're sharing a favorite snack with old friends while reminiscing about the golden age of gaming through these new titles. For a peaceful journey through modern retro gaming (that is not often covered) this is a must-listen. The hosts' authenticity, the laughter-inducing news, and the snack-time talk make this one of my listens when I want to be with some friends.
