Cinemaware are back (again) :)

I couldn't find this anywhere here (did a search on Cinemaware as a single word) but I would like to bring it to your attention.

They are trying to kickstart development of a HD re-imagining of Wings for PC/iOS devices and Android.

I thought some people may be interested....plus to be honest I was getting sort of fed up with all the stupid comments they're getting on A.ORG like "woah! no Amiga OS4 version then?" pffft. We here are much more sensible here and at least the thread won't descend into a Classic/OS4/MOS piss'n contest right?

Anyway the woman in the videos is really pretty and has nice ample sized bosoms...just like all the Cinemaware games and artwork so worth posting about just for that no?

Seems more worthy than the Ouya (and we saw where that went). Hopefully they get enough funding to do this.

URL? I gather that Amiga.org were somewhat derisive of the Ouya?

What? No AmigaOS4 port????

:-) Kidding.....

Seriously, I'm all for almost any new (well, in the timing sense) adventure games.
Hopefully this does well (and they do it well) and they can move on to some new content as well...

I just hope they don't measure based on the current "game success" market.
One of the things I'm hoping will come out of this Kickstarter game trend is that I hope we start to see successful and smaller markets..

Games were very successful when they sold just 100,000 copies or so back in the day.
There's no reason that shouldn't be feasible today...

I don't expect adventure games to sell like CoD, but I'm sure there's a market...

I am a bit skeptical, as this Cinemaware is not the original Cinemaware and the game should be developed by 3rd party. I am not sure if I am interested enough.

Here's an interesting quote from the comments section of the Kickstarter.

So, some of the "new" stuff might be old stuff that didn't make it...

Sounds more and more interesting....

Well, i'm not playing such game on anything without a physical controller, and i don't own a windows machine. if they just had a linux or os x version.

Understood there.
I'd much prefer a Linux version too...

Just economics at that point. Many kickstarters have gone for Mac/Linux with the "stretch" goals, so you never know....
I'll be watching to see how they progress..

I didn't hear a word she said,
The German guys were great too - for totally different reasons! Anybody else backed?
It seems to be going slower than others I have backed?
Merge threads?
