About

Retro Adventurer Magazine is the brainchild of writer/photographer/film maker John S. Savage.  a life-long fan of Text Adventures and Game Books, John entered middle age missing the days when trawling the shops (and garages) looking for a never-played-before game or book was as important a part of life as breathing and (typing into a search engine just isn’t the same) so, he thought, if the 80s weren’t going to come back to him, he may as well go back to them; and that’s what Retro Adventurer Magazine is: a nostalgic pilgrimage to the days when adventuring was fresh and new.
