You might remember a post about the return of Mutation Software (and how he planned to re-release some of his old games to test the market) that I did a while back, well, the games launched a few weeks ago as planned and best of all is that all 3 games sold out in a […]
It is time to go back to 1993, a time when the Amiga had AAA studios still releasing games and everything looked absolutely brilliant. Digital Illusions had just released some news about two upcoming action platformer type of games and they also reported that their last pinball game (Pinball Fantasies was just recently released for […]
The University of Applied Sciences Hochschule Augsburg also takes measures against Sars-CoV-2 virus spread.
Another retro computing event, the "RETROpulsiv 15.0" to be held at the University of Applied Sciences Augsburg from 04. - 05.04.2020 has been cancelled due to the outbreak of COVID-19 disease.
First off I must apologise for the slowness of blog updates this month. I have been quite ill for the past two weeks (especially the last week) with some kind of bad flu thingy. And no, I haven't travelled anywhere overseas or even Australia recently...I am still recovering, so I have been isolating and working from home (just in case) to protect work colleagues and family.
Despite this, I have still been doing some Amiga stuff this month.
While I recently posted about a custom case cover for the A600, I saw this one today that replaces the wedge case. While I personally liked the Commodore wedge design, I think this one looked really good. Inside you can see the CFIDE adapter, KS 3.1 ROM and Furia 020 accelerator. Outside, it looks like wireless mouse and keyboard. Pretty nice!
Due to the current outbreak of COVID-19 caused by the new Corona virus, Revision 2020 demo party to be held in Saarbrücken, Germany, from April 10th to 13th 2020, is cancelled - but there's a backup plan.
I spotted this one on Facebook. Someone used a 3d Printer to make his own custom cover case for his A600, including a space for the PCMCIA card if one is there. I don’t think he’s offering to make them for others but I thought it was very nice and deserved to be spotlighted to show what Amiga lovers can and will do for their machines.
This weekend I noticed a post on Facebook in the “Commodore Amiga” group.
It was simply Amigapassion making a note that if you went to www.amigapassion.com you was redirected to Amigakit webshop.
Now this is simply put very not ok. As most of you might know. amigapassion (on real site: https://www.amigapassion.co.uk/ ) offers repairs of Amigacomputers. so does amigakit.
Dude, that's a lot of games. The game development scene is bustling with activity. Next round of Amiga entertainment from 2019/2020. There's no time to waste, here we go.
Looks like a new’ish browser (probably using OWB framework) with a much more recent WebKit is coming. It’s detailed in this thread –> here<–
Probably still some weeks or so away from an alpha version and the author is admitting that webinspector and possibly YouTube media playback may not be supported. That makes me sad, as YouTube support is important to me in a modern browser.
Still more 2019 games! And some 2020 gaming news, too! Yes, we're transitioning into 2020, but in many cases development dates back to 2019, or even further. Either way, more awesomeness here.
R.E.R.O. - Amiga H.E.R.O. remake

As you know I am busy with Iridium at this time, also slowly working away on Boss Machine and Reshoot Proxima III for our Amiga Platform. The latest news for Iridium is here.
