Faces which defined the Amiga

Some faces will be forever associated with the Amiga. Here are a few which helped to define the Amiga and take their place in computing history. I'm sure there are loads more, some more personal than these, but I think every Amiga fan can relate to these famous Amiga faces



Cheers!
Tolls.

They certainly helped define how poor a port can be.

There was this pic of a girl in a hat touching her lips with a pencil... was 14 or 15 at the time, remember thinking, "How can anyone look this beautiful!?" (no, I'm being serious.)

Peter Molyneux - yep that's a great example. I visited the Bullfrog offices as they were developing the Amiga version of Populous in the small upstairs office in Guildford. The floor was strewn with Lego blocks which they were using to plan the landscaping technique, and I distinctly remember they had a fish tank with piranhas in.

I spent a good few hours there talking about the various graphics techniques they were using and spoke at length to Simon Hunter one of their artists.

Anyway here's another face below. You might not know who he is by appearance, but he wrote a classic Amiga game - anyone guess?
