The story of the Commodore Amiga in Pixels_ was published 3 years ago, and for the last 18 months or so it has been out of stock. To have another print run is expensive - so I am using a Pre-order scheme to raise the funds to print some more of this great book.
The book is 296 pages in length, and just like the Commodore 64 book, and comes in two flavours - paperback and hardback. The paperback has a thick, high quality cover, with the Tutankhamun embossed and spot varnished; the hardback has a matt finish with spot varnish on the Tutankhamun image.
23rd August - UPDATE - We are re-doing the 45 reviews in the book. They have now all been done, and are being proofed this week and slotted into the book.
As a stretch goal - if we hit £8K by the end of next month, each pledger will get a Fusion Amiga magazine as well. We plan to go to print once the reviews are in - so next couple of weeks.

This product will only be produced if at least £5,500.00 is contributed by September 30, 2020 15:56 (London)

For much of the 1980s, the UK led the world-wide revolution in home computing. At the heart of the fledgling industry, which grew to be a billion-dollar-a-year business, Ocean Software led the way as a creative developer and publisher. Its history of innovation, expansion and triumphs established the company as a global brand. This is Ocean’s extraordinary story, told first-hand by those who were there, from the Suits upstairs to the 'Scum' in the Dungeon.
This PAPERBACK and HARDBACK book has over 30 memoirs from those who worked at Ocean thus giving a unique insight into what it was like working for one of the largest software houses in the 80s and 90s. Remember Daley Thompson's Decathlon? Paul Owens wrote the game for the ZX Spectrum as well as Kong and tells us first hand how he created the games.
This is a 268 page book charting the rise and eventual sell off of this great company.
