Down Low Retro: Our Australian Retro Gaming Discord Sever

in The Pocket Gamer Gang

Down Low Retro is our little piece of the Retro internet dedicated to connecting with our fellow Australian gamers, and of course, honorary Australians. We started the down Low Retro Discord Server in February 2021 as a way to network, wind-down and relax with others in the retro gaming scene and get to know more people in our community. 

Down Low Retro isn't reserved for just Aussie gamers - but it is located and focuses on interacting, networking with and building relationships with modders, retailers and content creators specifically in Australia. Australian Retro Gaming is a community we always wanted to nurture and develop, and we've been able to meet some awesome people along the way. Anyone is welcome to join and have some casual chats and laughs, or if you're looking for a specific thing, you can ask the members of the server for help. 

While Yesterday's Tech has taken a small step back from Down Low Retro since starting the server due to high time constraints, we do lurk there often and jump on for a chat whenever we can. However, the server is still lovingly cared for and you'll be able to meet and get to know some of our regulars if you pop in. We've made a point to highlight some of our awesome Australian creators, artists and retailers who are helping to grow the scene and keep things fun! 

Some of our awesome Australian small businesses and creators include:
