I happened to stumble across this bulletin board while doing an MSN search.
I see that our Amiga game development adventures have been discussed. The link to my definitive Team Hoi story has also already been posted. Thanks for your interest.
About the Fairlight-cracked version of Hoi: I don't even care anymore what exactly happened back then. I clearly remember that the premature release incredibly messed up our expectations for the future of Hoi, after a year of very hard, unpaid work on the game. I guess you can imagine how we felt about the guilty ones.
But on a different note ... are you all still actively using your Amigas or is this board merely for nostalgic purposes? Anyway, the Amiga will forever live on in my memory. I don't think the unique atmosphere of the Commodore days will ever return.
