The Future Depends on YOU! Help develop new Amiga games!

Hello everyone! I've been chatting with a few fellow Amiga games developers about their current projects and what still needs to be done with them before they're ready to be released. It seems there are quite a few games in production, but the people working on them could really do with some more help. So I've decided to start a thread where we can list all the current Amiga games in development, giving a brief description of each one and detailing the kind of help needed. As new games come to light I can edit this first post to add them to the list, or remove them once they're completed.

While letting everyone know about all the exciting new games coming out for Amigas, the main reason for this thread is to seek out new talent to join us and help get these games finished. We are all doing our best to get our games made, but we all need help with various things, including graphics, music, sound effects, playtesting, level design, animation, and most importantly coding!

So, if anyone out there is up to the challenge and has the skills required, please contact us and join the team, we'll fill you in on all the details to get you started. Also, if anyone knows of any more current game projects that could be added to the list, let me know and I'll add them.

With your help, the Amiga games scene will see more hits in 2009 than it has in years!

And so, on with the list:
