The Commodore Story - Changing the world 8-bits at a time

This nostalgic film & book project about Commodore - and thus the Amiga- looks like it's already a huge success, and there's still 20 days to go!

The Kickstarter campaign had a goal of 17500 pounds - but has easily reached and exceeded that amount, currently at 28721 pounds, repeatedly adding new features available to supporters, like an extra documentary BluRay, additional book pages, merchandise, an additional free movie download, and more.

Now that's an impressive success story. :-)

Super Stardust for C64?

Halfway off-topic, but nontheless interesting for Amiga gaming enthusiasts: A demo/preview of Super Stardust, the high-polished Asteroids clone for AGA Amiga, has been released - for the C64!

If you read the comments,though, it looks at this will remain a demo and has been dropped by the author. Still an interesting idea, and a jaw dropping technical demonstration.

The Amiga that wouldn't die

Found this beautiful image on the net, drawn by the great Eric Schwartz - and it perfectly fits the idea of AMIGA alive:



Btw., it's an obvious reference to the 1962 horror film "The brain that wouldn't die".

Support the artist, check out his work! For example his brilliant "Sabrina online" comic strip series: http://www.sabrina-online.com
