    Default Kickstarter for Amiga/Atari Game Player

    I wanted to share a new Kickstarter campaign with you all.

    The goal is to re-release classic video games from the 80ís and 90ís via a player that works on mobile phones, tablets, and smart TVs. This includes 100s of popular games from Amiga, Atari and others.

    You can learn more about it on the Kickstarter website: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects...nfinity-player

    I cringed watching the video... then cringed again when I realized they were just reading the copy that made up the campaign text.

    I can't count enough fails for this. Who did they intend their target audience to be? What does Nascar have to do with this project? Have they never heard of already-free emulators? Why did they feel they needed 250K to make this happen (and then only ask for 100K in the kickstarter)?

    A quick look through the games catalog shows that it is essentially the Gremlin catalog. So someone paid $25k (or something) for Gremlin's mobile rights or something, and now have no idea how to make money with it.
    Offering a bounty for:
    - A working Sanyo MBC-775, Olivetti M24, or Logabax 1600
    - Music Construction Set, IBM Music Feature edition (has red sticker on front stating IBM Music Feature)

    The AmigaGamesInc web site proclaims the CD32 as "the world's first 32-bit games platform." I guess they never heard of the Fujitsu FM Towns Marty?
