New Putty Squad conversions

I think this was already released on iPad, but now it's being released on PS3, Xbox 360, Wii U, Vita, 3DS and PC.

Source: http://www.nintendolife.com/news/201..._wii_u_and_3ds

I'm guessing they still won't release the original Amiga game to us though...

I've always wondered that. Too much rose tinting in the Amiga world

Might well get this on the PS3. But with the SNES version on my iPad under emulation (with the Wii Classic controller) not sure I need another version.

If you want your say they are responding to comments on their official Youtube channel.

Might be a good opportunity to actually be heard and put a case forward for an Amiga release.

It looks like Putty Squad may be released on the Amiga after all! In this IGN article (http://uk.ign.com/articles/2013/05/1...d-bounces-back) it says:

"Finally, for those who are still in possession of what must by now be distinctly yellow-tinged Amiga hardware, Cale is hinting that System 3 is hoping to give them a reason to dust-off their keyboards and party like it’s 1994 by way of a pre-order incentive. Nothing is currently confirmed, but Cale hopes to be able to announce something later this year."

Okay, it's just a hint, nothing is confirmed and the announcement is just a hope, but offering the Amiga version as an incentive to buy the remake does sound a feasible way for System 3 to make a few pounds. And if it makes pounds, it makes sense.

Perhaps a chance that it will release once they've made money elsewhere- can't see that being much though anyway? they could easily do this right now though for amiga

As it is there's no point expecting anything here though

Love to see their overall sales outside of snes because the way they've done this, you'd think this was making them a ton of cash not to bring it to amiga too

Putty Squad..... the most pirated amiga game of 2014

to be honest, how many amiga users would pay for this game, i mean to be worthwhile for the devs to pocket?

It should be released as a gesture of goodwill, not

oh look, heres some manky unfinished Adfs of a long lost amiga game, shall we bin it? no
shall we give it to the amiga community and let it spread the word and set the internet alight so it creates interest so ps3, pc, nintedo sales get a boost?

no, sod em. thier desperate so lets capitalise on them and sell it for money
