The Amiga Games Scene needs your help!
« on: May 14, 2009, 08:02:53 PM »
Hello everyone! I've been chatting with a few fellow Amiga games developers about their current projects and what still needs to be done with them before they're ready to be released. It seems there are quite a few games in production, but the people working on them could really do with some more help. So I've decided to start a thread where we can list all the current Amiga games in development, giving a brief description of each one and detailing the kind of help needed. As new games come to light I can edit this first post to add them to the list, or remove them once they're completed.

While letting everyone know about all the exciting new games coming out for Amigas, the main reason for this thread is to seek out new talent to join us and help get these games finished. We are all doing our best to get our games made, but we all need help with various things, including graphics, music, sound effects, playtesting, level design, animation, and most importantly coding!

So, if anyone out there is up to the challenge and has the skills required, please contact us and join the team, we'll fill you in on all the details to get you started. Also, if anyone knows of any more current game projects that could be added to the list, let me know and I'll add them.

With your help, the Amiga games scene will see more hits in 2009 than it has in years!

And so, on with the list:



Halloween Nightmare

Hey everyone! Just a quick update, I've added a new video of Tracker Hero showing the Guitar controller support in action! I'm pretty sure it's using Paul Willigham's Playstation-CD32 adapter. I really hope they can add USB support too.

Check it out - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WRWl9O86cis

Yes, the magizine has an Amiga column in it every week and is the only reason I read it. To be fair, there are other articles I end up reading but without the Amiga part I would never have picked it up.

Wow, that's awesome news! Hopefully people reading the magazine will see the article and want to help out too. It's fantastic to see the word is spreading now, the more game projects in production, the better! (As long as they get finished)

If only my Amiga specific knowledge was up to snuff (existant).

Annihilation looks awesome...

pending the completion of a good Amiga setup again, I wouldn't mind demoing any or all of the games at a local computer convention in October! Im going to have a good amount of table space.
I am a negative, rude, prick.

Which "local computer convention in October" would that be?  AmiWest 2009?  What else are you going to have at your table at the convention?

Edit: I just noticed that nooly has posted his/her first message on the forums of A.org.  Welcome and stick around, this is the best Amiga site to be a member of and to look for the latest news of all things Amiga related.  Again, welcome aboard.
