Well...  It would be nice if we could get a few left over table scraps from the PC market.  Some ports would be nice (battlefield 1942 would be sweat).  But here's the catch:  We need a DirectX API and an OpenGL API.  Once that is in place we can then think about porting games.

But will the Amiga be the god of computer gaming?  Probably never.  Even if you'd sink $2billion into the Amiga games market it still wouldn't hold a candle to what's available for the PC.  If you want to play games buy a PC!

Good to hear buddy. Yeah we really need all you Amigans support. To show Cinemaware we still love them after all these years. God only knows how much Cinemaware still loves its favourite little platform which made it renowned among the gaming elite of yesteryear.

And yeah they could really use all the support they can get. You guys will probably be happy to know that they intend on remastering almost every game title they released on the A500 platform. I think they should also remaster for the A1 but heres one for hoping. As for their long term projects, they are remaking (yes you heard right), the original Defender of the Crown with todays 3d gfx.

So for all you Amigans that have fond memories of Cinemaware, please post your thoughts and words of support on their forum they have some members of their dev team that will answer every question you may have for future projects. So its a fantastic opportunity to voice your thoughts directly at the Cinemaware team, Not o mention read up on a little Amiga history through the eyes of Cinemaware. Cheerio!
