Knightmare, the insanely awesome 1980s fantasy TV show is getting a one-off special as part of YouTube’s Geek Week festival. The string of events runs between August 4-10 and the Knightmare special will see the show’s original cast return. It’s live now.

UPDATE: Here it is folks. Watch and wrap yourselves up in a cosy blanket threaded from your nostalgia.

What do you think?


“But Dave, this is TV news, not gaming news you chubby sod!”

Yeah it’s a TV show but it was damned influential on the 1980s gaming scene let me tell you. it saw a bunch of kids guiding their friend through a series of digitally-crafted dungeons and traps along with the guidance of presenter Treguard, played by Hugo Myatt. He’s returning for the special too.

The Guardian reports that the special show’s contestants will include YouTube stars Dan “danisnotonfire” Howell, Phil “AmazingPhil” Lester, Emma “emmablackery” Blackery and Stuart “ashens” Ashen.
