Well, unfortunately most of what comes out lately is just garbage. Of course, not commercial, but still, it feels like almost nobody is doing professional-grade development of Amiga games, not enough to cross the border onto making something worth purchasing. People's acceptance of anything "just because it's for Amiga", a sentiment expressed above in this thread (someone saying they are happy with just seeing the Amiga logo on a game), is not going to lead to proper grade Amiga games to be developed either.
The platform of distribution is not a problem anymore, you just need people actually making the games that are worth publishing and paying money for.
I would obviously like to pay for a proper copy of Mr. Beanbag, for example. One of the few games that are professional in the Amiga development world of late.

They aren't. I linked to the site that sells them before, RGCD: http://www.rgcd.co.uk/
Although the games were, most of them, originally conceived without commercial gain in mind, the quality they have is of good enough grade to be sold in a decent box and/or cartridge. That's not something I can say of the kickstarter game, which looks way too amateurish. Asking 60 pounds for such a crummy looking game is just cheeky.
Look at RGCD prices, with games costing 20 pounds, and we're talking about games with boxes, instructions and even a physical cartridge made for them.
