Retro Infinity Player
An Awesome, Innovative Way to Play Classic Video Games

Enjoy your favourite Amiga and other "retro" video games on your mobile phone or tablet.

LOS ANGELES, California—September 10, 2015—Retro Infinity Player, an awesome, innovative way to play classic video games, was just announced. Retro Infinity intends to re-release classic video games from the late 80’s and 90’s. They have licensed hundreds of amazing retro games that were played on consoles and PC's created by such legendary video gaming companies as Amiga, Atari, and others. The Retro Infinity Player is a software engine that allows these timeless games to be played on today’s mobile phones, tablets, smart TVs and streaming set-top devices. Imagine playing those great games on devices such as an iPhone, Android, Windows Phone, Amazon Fire TV, Apple TV, Google Chromecast, and Roku. 

Many of these games have been unavailable to play for years because the software is incompatible with today's mobile platforms, but the Retro Infinity Player is the solution. However, before everyone can enjoy these classic games, Retro Infinity needs help. That’s why they launched this Kickstarter campaign. The goal of this project is to raise $100,000 by October 7, 2015. The funds raised will go towards completing the software development and releasing the Retro Infinity Player. 

To help bring this innovative software engine to market, please visit the Kickstarter campaign or click here.

Perks will be delivered between November 2015 and May 2016.

Please keep in mind this is an “all-or-nothing” deal, which means if the campaign does not reach the funding goal then the project cannot move forward. So know that any amount given can make a difference, and this is an incredible opportunity to be a part of a special campaign! Help Retro Infinity reach the goal by sharing this on Facebook, Twitter, and other social networks. The more people know about this, the more support the campaign will receive.

Amiga 500 v Atari ST - Shadow Of The Beast

A comparison video of the classic 16-Bit game Shadow Of The Beast running on both the Amiga 500 and the Atari ST. It’s a bit unfair as the Atari ST could have done a better job, the Psygnosis developers must have been lazy when porting the game! Still fun to watch :)

The Amiga turns 30—“Nobody had ever designed a personal computer this way”

Ars Technica are also covering the Amiga’s 30th anniversary. Journalism is prone to hyperbole, but on July 23, 1985 technology genuinely changed forever. At New York's Lincoln Center, as a full orchestra scored the evening and all its employees appeared in tuxedos, Commodore unveiled the work of its newly acquired Amiga subsidiary for the first time. The world finally saw a real Amiga 1000 and all its features. A baboon's face at 640x400 resolution felt life-changing, and icons like Blondie's Debbie Harry and Andy Warhol came onstage to demo state-of-the-art technology like a paint program.

Today, Amiga—specifically its initial Amiga 1000 computer—officially turns 30. The Computer History Museum (CHM) in Mountain View, CA will commemorate the event this weekend (July 25 and 26) with firsthand hardware exhibits, speakers, and a banquet where the Viva Amiga documentary will be shown. It's merely the most high-profile event among dozens of Amiga commemorative ceremonies across the world, from Australia to Germany to Cleveland…
