I personally feel that the lack of new development for the classic amiga series is due to the difficulty in getting into Amiga emulation for a n00b; you need kickstart roms and workbench to get the most out of an Amiga, and some people just aren't willing to pay for them.

The Atari ST/E scene, however, is almost equally quiet, with maybe 1-2 new game releases each year, compared to the spectum and c64 having 1-2 new games a month each!

It's a shame, as back in the day Amos and Blitz users used to churn out hundreds of games. I'd love to see a revived Blitz scene on the Amiga today; finding artists is easy thanks to sites like pixeljoint, but Amiga coders are a rare commodity.
