Antstream - A retro game streaming subscription service coming soon!

As someone who is a huge retro gamer going right back to the late 70's with an Atari 2600, an Amstrad, C64, ZX Spectrum, Amiga and pretty much every other system you could think of at my disposal at one point or another through the years. I was pleasantly surprised to come across a retro gaming streaming service that had just appeared in my twitter feed, that could be a very good addition to my playtime other than real hardware or preference installed emulators. Titled as Antstream and developed as the brainchild of CEO Steve Cottam and inspired by his involvement in 3DO development, this service features a lovingly curated selection of games from a catalogue of thousands of fully licensed titles!

As noted by the website, the upcoming Antstream service offers retro for all, eliminating the need to trawl dark corners of the web for illegal game copies, or the need to purchase expensive vintage gaming hardware. Furthermore they have a catalogue of over 1000 fully-licensed titles, and new titles are being added to the app weekly, all running on a cloud on high spec servers, with the results sent to you as an interactive video stream, working on mobiles, tablets and PC’s of almost any spec.

Who is Antstream?

Ian Livingstone CBE is our Chairman and Life President of Eidos
Steve Cottam is the CEO and Founder.
Darren Melbourne is Head of Licensing
Miyake Kazutoshi is ex CEO of Sega Europe and works with us in Japan
Richard Tufft is our adviser and is ex Goldman Sachs
Jon Mitchell is Head of Commercial and ex Spotify
Jon Burton is Creative Director and the founder of TT Games

Currently we don't have a release date for this service, but with a detailed write up found on the site and a high quality team behind the service, this could be a winning combination! ( Website Link )
