Definitely. AGA or otherwise. It would be nice to have a game come in a nice box and to make it collectable like some new C64 games do.

Don't take this the wrong way: It's only your 2nd post on here.

New "AAA" game? No one's seen your coding chops, at least not on EAB.

A tad more information would be nice (and maybe a "I'm not interested in AAA games" option instead of that Amiga games suck junk...)

Haven't seen the first post, but the OP could just be a general question rather than implying they are going to write a AAA, if it's the later then I would agree... Funding a AAA Amiga game now would need some reputation!

I am with TCD on the Amiga game junk thing, perhaps not the best phrase on an Amiga fan forum

But yeah a triple A new game on stock A1200 would be awesome, share your ideas?

Yeah I took it as just a hypothetical question. I mean obviously it would depend on a lot of factors but fundamentally I would be interested.

You're probably right, Graham. I just took the "poll of the century and is dead SERIOUS" comment to mean non-hypothetical.

Yes I would pay into a new AAA game. As long as EA hadn't been anywhere near it!

Well, I have both A500 and A1200 and I would pay for any game (AAA, AA, or just A ), so there's no option for me I still voted for the A1200 option, as I think a new game should target AGA with min 6MB (2CHIP + 4FAST) of RAM.

As Lord Aga said, it doesn't have to be AAA in terms of production values. As long as it's a fun game that belongs to one of the genres I enjoy, I will be glad to be pay for it.

A new game should target A500 with additional extras for vanilla A1200. Imho.

I think an option is missing. If I were to make an Amiga game and sell it in a fancy box, I would also release a free download of it.

Unless the game is really shoddy, I think a majority of people enjoying it would actually pay for a boxed copy, even if it's available as a free download.

I would pay full price for a box copy (30) and 10 for a download version, the full price one could include a CD with ADFs and production content... A trailer, demo and concept work... It does have to be at least A standard. As for the genre, I would play it no matter what... It's a new commercial Amiga game!

As for what machine, stock A1200... That would probably capture most people, of course there's always Winuae...

I would like to see a classic style game, 2D or untextured 3D, perhaps mix of both, I would like modern concepts used like saving high scores and achievements etc

I would pay GBP 15 for Tales of Gorluth if boxed in CD jewel case. Full price for classic box.

I recently bought the commercial Atari Falcon game Elansar (similar to Myst).

http://onorisoft.free.fr/elansar/elansar.htm#English

But I didn't enjoy playing it on the Falcon. When it came out on Android I played that version.

If this is a vague and completely unrelated to anything kind of question, then, it should be translated like: "If a game that you would be interested in per se, made by some professional developer with a serious budget, should get out for amiga, would you buy it?"

If this is instead a question by some developer who wants to taste the ground for an eventual publication of his game on a platform (amiga or others), then it show actually the opposite of its premise, imho, for a number of reasons...

If it is more than just "making a poll because bored" and is serious question regarding commercial development than i would recommend to make screenshots of existing game or at least some sort of description to show how it would be so the discussion is less abstract. And then make it more visible to the people, perhaps as a kind of news.
