Hi, I’m Nick Westwood. RetroBreak is my dream project, bringing my love of retro gaming, story telling and content creation together!
Ever since I was a kid, I always loved playing games and creating things, from recording videos with my black and white camera, which plugged directly into the VCR, to recording my own “Podcasts” using a tape recorder! Little did I know that I’d end up doing these things semi-professionally, and have a growing audience of people who care about what I’m creating too!
In 2007, I decided to set up my own YouTube channel after getting a digital camera for Christmas that year. That channel is still going today, just under a new name… Take a look back at the history of my channel in this video:
Another dream of mine was to make games, and I did peruse this for a while, including even completing College and University courses in Game Design!
When I started Uni, I had to write about what got me interested in games. I have uploaded that essay on my site, so if you’re curious as to how I got my start in gaming, check this post out!
Ultimately I have put game development on hold for now while I focus on other creative projects. You can listen to my game dev journey in the below Podcast episodes:
Back to today, my goal is to create the best retro gaming content on the internet! I have big plans to grow the channel and this website, so I hope you all stick around for the journey!
