The Amiga computer, launched by Commodore in 1985, combined superior
multimedia technology with ease of use, inspiring millions of the most
creative and enthusiastic computer users ever.
Amiga Forever is the award-winning Amiga preservation, emulation and
support package brought to you by Cloanto, Amiga developers since 1986.
Different editions of Amiga Forever blend high-quality software and
original content with the ultimate set of videos to chronicle and let
you experience firsthand the history, culture, challenges and passion
behind the Amiga.
New features in Amiga Forever 2009:
All included games and demoscene productions are now in RP2 format
(uses less disk space and makes it very easy to add or remove files)
RP2 Manager to scan for and import/export content
Built-in RetroPlatform Library (to recognize and configure games, etc.)
with live updates
Seamless, one-click integration of AmiKit and AmigaSYS add-ons lets you
experience a broader variety of Amiga perspectives*
New system ROMs (e.g. the 0.7 Kickstart required to run the software used
by Andy Warhol in the 1985 Launch of Amiga demo)*
Improved documentation and help (new Tip of The Day balloon, new
documentation in Windows Help format)
Emphasis on usability: interface and settings are improved, but remain
consistent with the previous 2008 version and with C64 Forever (also see
Tips for Upgraders)
Tested to comply with "Compatible with Windows 7" requirements, with full
support for Windows Vista and Windows 7, both x86 and x64 (possibly still
the first and only Windows software with custom-shaped glass-enabled skin)
We decided to release this cool Commodore Amiga emulation tool, plus all
it's additional Games, Demoes and so on. Someone out there would perhaps
say this should be released under the Application section, since it's not
directly a game, but more a tool.
In a way they're right and we have seen previous Commodore Amiga editions
get released that way, but then again it is a tool that emulates the
Commodore Amiga machine, but yet it features a ton of games with it.
As proud Commodore Amiga owners, back when we were kids, then the nostalgic
moments and good memories with the breadbox came in first line. Just to
make us remember how much fun it was and to be honest, then some of the
included games are way more fun, than a large deal of the games relased
That's why we choose to release this under the Games section
