Get your game face on and compete in retro game rounds, 80s factoids and dance-offs as the Midnight Juggernauts take to the stage for an epic DJ set.
Come and cheer your friends on, or destroy them, during the live game play accompanied by medal ceremonies, food, drink and 80s beats.
Whether you're a competitor or a spectator, RETROLYMPIAD is one pixel pusher party you don’t want to miss. So start stretching and let the games begin.
