Just a distribution company? I've been hoping for Amiga remakes for years.

Ah well. As long as they improve the loading times -- until recently, I didn't realise how long it took to actually start playing an Amiga game -- this is good news.

Writers’ Group Film Corp? A film corporation? Lol, the (OCD) need to make games more cinematic just never ends. Now film corporations are taking over game companies!

Amiga games represent the golden age of gaming. The more available, the better.

You know, when I tried to sell this idea, I could not find sponsors. Now someone walks away with a possible 200 million profit. LIFE SUX!
