Hello all and everybody,

Novabug here to tell you what I'm all about, why I make content and why I'm on this very site.


I produce unique retro gaming content for the sheer enjoyment of creating and sharing. It's something I have a passion for that equally mirrors my passion for retro gaming. Re-experiencing old favourites or discovering games I have missed, either way I love making content and even more love the positive response by sharing it with like minded people. My focus is generally on the 8-bit and 16-bit era, especially the Amstrad platforms but I cover various systems and their gamebase. Any funding received from Patreon will be invested into improving my content in several ways. Higher quality equipment and software, wider promotion to reach more people to enjoy my work and higher interaction that will directly effect what I make content about. Rest assured, no funding will be spent on my personal collection or a holidays.

So what do I create? Well, it's kind of difficult to pigeon-hole my channel, but in a nutshell it's a mixture of several video types focused on the retro gaming scene. The primary crux of the channel are my shortplay reviews which I call NRG; these are easy to watch, max 10 minute gameplay videos with my off-the-wall commentary. These are complimented with Simply Longplay videos, which feature a retro game from start to finish, no commentary.

I also have regular series' running such as Top 11, my take on the generic Top 10 video, and The Brief History of... which is my game comparison series featuring a franchise and all versions of the title. Below is an example of each.




I have featured playlists for franchises like the Dizzy & R-Type, livestreaming in the form of The BugStream and the strangly popular Amstrad Game Testing LIVE,  my Vlog style Retro Waffle show (Again, one of the most popular) and I make individual projects with a common theme. In fact, my most popular video is The 464 Project. I also regularly collaborate with other youtubers big and small, and interview figureheads in the industry when I get the chance.



Making these videos is something of an obsession for me, I'm always looking to make a better product for everyone to enjoy, and I hope to elevate the overall quality and accelerate output even further with your help. Any patronage given no matter the amount will be humbling, highly appreciated and with any luck this will be reflected in any rewards I can offer, but mostly will be seen in improved content you will hopefully enjoy. If you do choose to support my work, I thank you hugely in advance and hope I can justify your faith in me and my work.

If this one and only target is reached, significant upgrades to my equipment will have been made. Predominantly a higher quality camera, PC upgrades and better lighting.
