This year, the retro area of gamescom featured popular classics from the past, new games for your retro console, interviews, live music, technology and much more.
In 2021 you could not only look forward to the retro area. This year, the retro area went live together with the cosplay village at WildMics. The two fan favourites each took on a part of the day. First it was all about cosplays, music, arts & props and workshops. Then it went on with game developers, collectors, fans and connoisseurs of classic games as well as new games in modern retro style. In addition, there were familiar faces from the scene and, of course, people also played games with and against each other.
Mháire Stritter from OrkenspalterTV hosted the cosplay stream, Joachim Hesse was the host of the retro show. They were supported by Tommy Krappweis & Band as well as Sven Vößing and the creative team of 'bumm film'.
