AMIGA version is out!

39 likes

Hello again everyone,

I am happy to announce that the Amiga version of Tower 57 is ready! (the minimum system requirements are posted below)

Although I didn't write the port myself, this is one milestone that is particularly close to my heart, as the Amiga 500 was my gateway into game making. So I'm glad I can finally cross "releasing an Amiga game" off my bucket list, although I'm admittedly about 25 years late (and it only runs on "modern" Amigas ^_^#)

Unfortunately we didn't have a specific Amiga reward tier, therefore I don't have a list of backers who backed specifically for the Amiga version.

So if you would like to play Tower 57 on your Amiga rig, please don't hesitate to contact me either through Kickstarter or directly at benitosub at hotmail.com and I will provide you with a download key!

And finally if you are active on Amiga forums / the Amiga scene, please help us spread the word! I would love to bring more games to the system that made me the gamer I am, so hopefully the reception will be good :)

Next up, and in no particular order, will be:

- getting the console versions certified

- Linux version

- 3 content updates still in the pipeline

- bug and stability fixes

- physical rewards / boxed edition

So as you can see I've still got quite some work ahead of me! In the meantime I sincerely hope all of you who own a modern Amiga system will enjoy the game.

Cheers,

Marco

MINIMUM SYSTEM REQUIREMENTS:

AOS4: AmigaOS 4.1 FE Upd1, >= 600 MHz, Gfx-card with Compositing support

MorphOS: MorphOS >= 3.9, >= 600 MHz, Gfx-card with TinyGL support

AROS: x86 (e.g. Icaros Desktop >= 2.2), Gfx-card with Mesa3D support

IMPORTANT NOTE: If you wish to play with a joypad or in 2-player mode, you will need an OS supported dual-stick joypad.

      Do you have a plan when the physical rewards will be ready?

      Ok hehe figured it out, pasted my reply to you from yesterday in a PM!

    3. Benitosub Creator on March 14

      Ok so yesterday the PM button was back, now it's gone again -_-
      Could you send me a PM on Kickstarter or check your junk folder?
      Cheers!

      Hey aPex,
      I'm confused, I replied to your email yesterday at 8:09 PM, maybe it's my own email that went into your junk folder?
      I will try sending you a PM on Kickstarter!

      Possible that my email went to spam? :-)

      Thank you so much Thomas!

      Also another QUICK UPDATE:

      I have just updated the game files with a fix for the flicker bug which could affect some screen-modes / monitor setups.

      If you have been experiencing this bug, please download the game files again and it will be fixed ^_^#

      Sorry again for the inconvenience and thank you for your understanding!

      Great work, this game is a blast!

      Hey Thomas,
      I wanted to message you on Kickstarter but I can't for the life of me find the message button anymore!
      Could you please send me a PM or an email over at benitosub hotmail.com?
      Cheers!

      UPDATE:

      Hey everyone, thank you so much for the kind words! I was just informed that on some screen-modes / monitor setups the game is currently flickering.

      Please rest assured that Daniel is already looking into it (he's unstoppable :D) and I will post a fix as soon as it is available!

      Cheers and thank you for your understanding ^_^#

      Oh BTW, would you consider adding some optional pixel shaders in the Win/Mac/Linux build like the ones used in RetroArch (xbrz + crt-lottes combination is absolutely mind boggling :)

    12. Mahenou on March 13

      Pretty cool ! Too bad I have no MorphOS machine anymore ! Will wait for the Linux build patiently :-)
      BTW, it would be awesome if the Amiga/MOS version could be explicitely specified on the GoG page (maybe at least in the bonus section ?)
      Cheers !

      Shame a few more aren't as appreciative of the platform that kickstarted their careers.

      (Yes EA, I do mean you)

      Yahooooooo !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
      an infinity of thanks to our Daniel and to Marco for making this happen for us Amiga users today !!!

    15. Marcel Schoen on March 13

      That's great! By the way - what also would be great if the source code was made available somewhere. I mean, of the Amiga version at least. It could help other hobbyists building some new Amiga games...

      question about the sale, in the future will you propose to us (at RELEC hard & soft Amiga) Tower57 for commercial sale?
      Best Regards
