It's 2021, and it seems I have gone back 30 years! There are so many new release games on Amiga and Commodore 64 in the past few years and I wanted to highlight some of these new games.
AmiWest is the premier Amiga show in North America.Founded in 1998 this year represents our 24th year of continuous service.

Here is another article that has been sitting on my HDD for months (just been too busy with game dev and family etc) in a more or less finished state. Wiz – Quest For The Magic Lantern was Mutation Software’s first Amiga title since the late 90s and at launch, the game came out on […]
Our AmiWest venue is back to business as usual. It seems that everyone is having a meeting now and using "our" venue to do it! Of course, we don't own the hotel but we do want our AmiWest attendees to get the best room rates available. Please book your AmiWest room as soon as possible. This enables us to increase the size of our room "block" if needed before attendees at other events take up all the space. Just go to our reservations page for both phone and online reservations. You can reserve now with no prepayment needed! Just pay at the end of your stay.
I had a few needs to for a simple voltage display that can handle the range of +5v to +12v. There’s a few different applications like displaying the state of a battery, a state of a power supply and so on.

Boss Machine - Crater Level :)
Despite being announced and made available since last April, the boxed version of the game hit my doorstep only yesterday.

It’s six weeks into the summer holidays – although this year, the word holidays rings a bit ironic to me because I don’t remember ever being so busy during summertime. Thank goodness, my current workload is not related to my day job, so paradoxical as it may sound, I’m getting a lot of enjoyment from sweating my guts out in this hot weather. Yes yes yes, I’m finally back on track, trying to catch up with my Amiga projects!
IBrowse has received another update, increasing it's version number to 2.5.5.
According to the release announcement, not much has changed visually, this is a maintenance release primarily addressing bugs, but also bringing a couple of new features - here's a quick (incomplete) overview of the changes in version 2.5.5:
“Without doubt, this is a seriously good simulation, but not devoid of humor. If you are taking too long, the snooker balls themselves develop faces and grin, grimace and stick out their tongues. And for those who want to show off their skills, there are numbers of trick shots with which to impress friends and […]
Today I am taking a look at the PiStorm accelerator with RTG support on my Amiga 500, which is installed in a Checkmate A1500Plus case.
