Commodore Amiga

Yes, I know it’s a 16 bit computer, and this is an 8 bit blog, but it’s mine so I can do what I like. I never owned an Amiga in the 80s, I went straight from 8 bit to PC. I remember still using my C64 though, right up to 1990, and coveting an Amiga sooo much – just could never afford one, and then work life was so heavily PC based that that just happened.

I am correcting that mistake now, and living the Amiga as I should have done the first time around.

I own an A500 with 1.5 MB expansion – latest posts in the Amiga category will be listed below.

    Going....Going....Gone!

    The big news this month is I have sold, yes, sold some vintage computers to make some room and get a bit of much needed cash. Obviously not the Commodore 64 stuff, that would be silly, but the Amiga and Spectrum have now gone.

    Actually, apart from money and room, the other major reason is time. I just don't have the time to dedicate to lots of different hardware, and I really do need to dedicate myself to learning Assembly on the C64. So decision made, the Commodore setup in the Retro Corner is now fully geared towards development, and I have sourced some definitive books on the subject, thanks to the great Commodore 64/128 facebook group.

    This blog is where I will be keeping a track of my game dev - first things first, storyline/title stuff like that. Not even sure what genre. All great fun though and I'm excited to see what I end up with.

    Oh and I'll keep the Amiga/Spectrum tabs as I am absolutely certain that I'll be collecting these machines again once space/time/money allows! This is the curse of the collector. The cycle of selling and collecting continues....
