Book Excerpts from April 9 – 13, Promotional News

Monday, 16 April 2018

Greetings, all,

I'm back with another round-up of tweets containing excerpts of Rocket Jump. If you missed any excerpts posted over the week of April 9-13, use the links below to do some reading.

In promotional news, I'll be joining the ARGcast (Another Retro Gaming Podcast) later today to talk Rocket Jump and FPS games from the '90s. I'll share a link to the podcast as soon as it's available. I always enjoy talking with hosts David Giltinan and Robert Workman, two editors I worked with at Retro Videogame Magazine, and am looking forward to catching up.

Finally, Rocket Jump was mentioned in an issue of RetroGames Daily by @daddyogames. Thanks for the shout out!
