Replay Events are a company who specialise in video gaming events and equipment hire and we will be providing a ‘robots’ themed videogames display for Robots Live! at the National Museum of Flight.
Running an event, even for just one day, takes a lot of preparation. All equipment has to be thoroughly checked and cleaned, all games have to be tested and spares need to be brought - some of the equipment we are asked to provide is over 30 years old! Depending on the size of the event, setup can take anything from a few hours to a few days and it isn’t unusual for us to work through the night to get things ready for a deadline.
For the Robots Live! we will be bringing a selection of computers and consoles from the 1970s right through to the most recent consoles. We will be showing how robot games have evolved as the games machines have become more powerful over the years. There should be something for all ages with our display – parents will enjoy showing their children what games were like when they were at school, some of the latest consoles will be on display for avid gamers and the exhibition should evoke a few smiles as well as memories in even the most casual of gamers.
