Getting closer to launch now.
Sam has released a launch video with the following information:

"Everything else is ticking a long nicely. No dramas, just waiting for bits from printers and posters to come back from signing.

In the meantime, I have put together a launch video of the book which will hopefully whet your appetites! I thought it would be fun to do in the style of an old Amiga demo and Echo aka SpoonWizard has kindly allowed me to use his 2014 remake of his original Jesus on E's track!"

I wonder how it's possible I totally miss this campaign

I'm seriously thinking about making myself a birthday gift: Commodore 64 and Amiga books.
A bit expensive, but they look absolutely stunning

Backed this on the first day. Almost went for the putty squad pledge but desided not to because I only had an A500 at the time and the game only runs on an A1200. Then like a month later I got myself an A1200 and now I'm banging my head that I didn't get the game. Ah well I still have the Jim Sachs glicee.

Both books available here by the way http://www.funstock.co.uk/commodore-...mmpendium-book

Kickstarter backers will have their books & goodies sent in the next couple of weeks.

Just ordered mine from funstock as I missed the kickstarter campaign (gutted as I would've loved the putty squad game and hard book cover).

Does this book have anything on Mindscape games (knightmare, moonstone etc)?

Also in the end were there any big games that couldn't be included as you didn't get the developers permission to print their pics?... Or is that not an issue after all these years?

My copy arrived today :-) been reading through it all day and am not disappointed I think it's excellent. The Another World poster is already on the wall and have listened to the Shadow of The Beast Remix Album.
Can't see much point in the postcards/sticker but the pen will come in handy but at the end of the day I backed this for the book.
Just wish Sword of Sodan was in there as that is the game which made me want an Amiga.

I left for work today at 11:30 and no book up until then. The mail comes late afternoon where I live anyway so it shouldn't be too far away.

Mine has arrived today. It is, without overstating it, stunningly well done.
Big thanks and congratulations to all involved. Proper labour of love, it seems!

Received my book today (Germany). Quality is superb, tons of content ... fantastic work.

I just briefly flipped through the pages and it brings back a lot of great memories.

Book is a must buy for any Amiga lover!

Received mine yesterday - still not opened it, going to wait a bit longer for the PDF version as I'm a sucker for shrinkwrap
