Personally, i've always seen it as a hobby like fishing, playing games or restoring an old vehicle, you put time, effort and often money into it but don't expect anything back apart from enjoyment of the challenges involved and the more occasional sense of achievement when something is finished.

^^ This, 1000 * this. Make an Amiga game for your own satisfaction - if other people like it when/if you release it publically, this is a bonus.
If your reason for coding an Amiga game is for fame/wealth, I suggest you move along... nothing to see here!
