An Old School Platformer – Christmas Breakdown

One of the reasons why I’m not very active on the blog in these days is due to the fact that I’m spending a considerable amount of time doing researches about Commodore and Amiga‘s heyday, including how and why their era ended almost all of a sudden. So while I was meditating about what to […]

It’s not because I don’t want to, neither because I don’t have enough time, but simply because Tony and I balanced our workload to better fit each one’s needs. Nonetheless, I’m always striving to improve my skills in the Amiga environment, so I’m constantly looking for […]

DV Player - AmigaOS 4

I haven't posted for a while as I focus as much free time as possible to "Iridium" game.  While digging through my graphic archives I come across concepts.  Here for example is an old (2014) concept for a DV Player for the AmigaOS.  Always liked the CDTV interface and that is the inspiration for it.
