The History of Ocean Software - Kickstarter

Hi there, I am running a campaign on Kickstarter to fund the publishing of a book on Ocean Software. They guys produced and published some great games on the Amiga so please help by putting a pledge in for the book : http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/...=home_location

Fudd-Ed (Ocean Software) with dump and instructions. This was the Ocean Software's internal sprite and gamemap editor which was used to create graphics on many Ocean's games on 16 and 8-bit platforms.
Many thanks to Mark R. Jones from Ocean for making it available!

I think atarimania have only few supporters. atarilegend is without updates for long time, even search engine is broken. Dino extinction.

No Atarilegend is not updated anymore.

I am part of the Atarimania team now and we are 3 people in total for the ST section (4 if the founder is counted in but he does lot's of other stuff also)
The ST demo section is pretty much dead at Atarimania since it is something that require great knowledge (my is only moderate when it comes to demos).
I am focusing on ST games since that is what i can and also i like to play games

dlfrsilver... you posted in the Atarimania forum that you was about to send the Ocean editors but we never recieved any?

Mostly unreleased graphics from Mark R. Jones who worked at Ocean Software between 1987 and 1991:

Wasn't Retrogamer's article enough on history about Ocean? Is there really enough material for a book and is book really needed?

What will you do - add bunch of screenshots and game art to make it into book?

Just wondering... not really against any retro - projects, but not necessarily for them either... (as long as we can download free PDF )
