Cool This Amiga game was lost for two decades, and now it's out on Steam

Hm, I have read about this game many times before, but now, when it was found, will it be finally finished for the true platform?

It was not "lost", it was abandon. If it was lost and found it would understood it like - it was finished in 1993 and released today. I'm sure it pc game now and it was based on stuff from 93. My question is - is it good shmup?

Nice graphics but it looks boring gameplay-wise.

If it's not coming out on the Amiga, then I'm simply not interested.

So, perhaps a more appropriate subject:
This Amiga game was lost for two decades, and it's still lost.
But here's a few ports to other systems...

Starlord finished the game with the original artist- it's available for pc. It's slightly unfinished however- He was unable to find anyone to help with an amiga port I think.

Krista then went off and di another version of the same game for steam- thats this game.

Well good to see there is a version of it out there finally, but 12 bucks for a game I see myself playing maybe 4 hours... nah. I'll just have to be rude and wait for the 50% discount.

Also: using random unknown steam users as your references in the trailer... come on.

Just a heads up that the price has been lowered a bit. If the devs make the plans true for adding levels and such then maybe its even worth it now.

Dem AGA gfx?

What the heck - still no Amiga version?

Releasing on retro platforms is becoming all the rave now-a-days.

Looks like Xenon II turned sideways kind of

Also where is the price? I can't see any add to cart buttons on it :/

Of course I'd love to run it on a real Amiga, but it still looks like it's very much worth my time to buy it for PC.

Steam only recently started listing games in Australian Dollars, but unfortunately a lot of developers/publishers have yet to get around to setting the price for that region.

Sorry, but you're going to have to nudge them [developer or publisher] to sort it out.
