Thousands of words have been written about ownership of the Amiga IP being bounced around from pillar to post (Commodore to Escom, Escom to Gateway, Gateway to Amiga Inc) but very little, if anything, has been written outside of the Amiga community about the games that were realesed during these turbulent years and the amazing efforts of companies like Vulcan software and ClickBOOM to keep the Amiga alive.
Few people are aware of the real gaming gems that were released during this period such as the real time strategy game Napalm, action adventure Wasted Dreams, first person shooter Genetic Species or Mario 64 clone (honestly!) Tales from Heaven.
The Amiga also played host to a number of PC and console conversions including Doom, Quake, WipeOut 2097, Heretic 2, Shogo and Myst.
I am sure there is plenty of material for a great feature.

A couple of years back I considered upgrading to a fancy new AmigaOne but the rather hefty price put me off.
I've started using WinUAE alot more than my actual Amiga due to the convenience of it, but there's nothing like inviting a few mates round and firing up the Amiga for a few drunken games of SWOS.
