Classic video game console the Amiga is getting a documentary

From Bedrooms to Billions the Omega Years will tell teh story of the rise of the personal computer as a gaming device. Following on the success of the original “From Bedrooms To Billions” this next instalment “From Bedrooms To Billions: The Amiga Years” gives you an insiders look into the fascinating true story on the Commodore Amiga’s influence on the video games industry.3

As with the original ‘From Bedrooms to Billions’ the filmmakers balance the ‘The Amiga Years!’ with nostalgic archive footage, stills and music with newly shot interviews with some of the original Amiga design team as well as with some of the biggest names in video game development, publishing, music and journalism from across the last 30 years.
The Amiga featured some truly stunning games and many of the creators of those games appear in The Amiga Years movie such as Eric Chahi (Another World), Bullfrog (Syndicate, Populous), Paul Cuisset (Flashback), Martin Edmondson (Shadow of the Beast), Team 17, Magnetic Fields, Factor 5, DICE, Cinemaware and many many more! It will be released in September 2016 on DVD and BluRay and available in both Standardand Special Editions.

Im interested in all things history (I actually have a history degree!) and so when things that are a part of gaming history get made, im always excited. Thought I havent seen the first documentary

About Fionna Schweit

Hi, Im fionna Fox! and i love video games. I have been playing video games since I could reach the keyboard. My first PC was a gateway (though dont ask me to recall the model number) and I remember starting most of my games out of DOS. Those were interesting years. My first console system was an Nintendo 64, on which i played a lot of GoldenEye and StarFox 64 and even more gauntlet dark legacy. Now i mostly play PC games, though i do own a Xbox one (mostly for halo). My favorite types of games are rogue likes, and anything thats an RTS, I have a soft spot for anything in the Warhammer universe as well.
