Antstream - A retro game streaming subscription service is a Kickstarter success

Great news if you were supporting the Antstream Kickstarter; a crowd funding campaign for a retro gaming based streaming service. As we've recently been informed through our twitter feed, that not only is it a Kickstarter success but the pledges are still increasing and it's now beyond £50,000! For those of you didn't follow our previous article, Antstream is being 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 the Kickstarter page notes : The 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 2,000 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.
