Ars-Technica looking to contact Amiga Game Devs
« on: December 21, 2009, 11:17:43 AM »
Know anyone who worked as game dev for the Commodore Amiga?
By Jeremy Reimer

"Did you, or anyone you know, ever work in game development for the Commodore Amiga?

If so, I'd like to hear from you.

In August 2007, I started writing the history of the Amiga computer for Ars Technica. Seven installments were published, starting with the founding of the company, carrying on through the Commodore purchase and unveiling of the Amiga 1000, and looking at the struggles the company experienced in the years that followed. At that point, I had decided to leave the chronological tale and spend some time looking at various sub-cultures of the Amiga experience. The first subculture I tackled was gaming. I wrote one article about the games themselves, but then I turned to what I thought was more interesting: the lives of the games developers."

Clicking through to his blog, I ran across this charming article on his 'Studly OS' project.

I loved the quote by B1FF regarding Amigas. Classic!
Amiga FTW!

I know Jim Sachs but have not talked with him since 1995 or 1996.

words got around 'the chaosengine' games industry private forum. There's loads of old Amiga devs on there. Hopefully we will read some cool interviews!

I should point out that Jeremy Reimer is a little bit of a nutter when it comes to Amiga stuff, he writes some nice articles but he is a bit "enthusiastic" ;)

Someone writing about the Amiga who's a bit over-the-top enthusiastic?  What!  We can't have that!!!

Where's that guy who keeps telling us we're all fools for using a dead platform?  We need him to write the article!!

You could try contacting Charles Cecil and/or Tony Warriner over at Revolution. They done some pretty awsome games for the Amiga. Beneath A Steel Sky and King's Quest VI for instance.

I sent him an email about a week ago, but I never heard anything back.
Did anyone else get a response ?
