Amiga Forever was featured in the March 2005
RetroGaming Radio show:
Editorial: Nostalgia: Is it dying?
Interview: Mike Battilana
Product Review: Heavy Weapon, Zen Wordz
This month we interview Amiga Forever's Mike Battilana about the
new Amiga Forever 6.0 - and we're going to give away three copies in a
new contest! We discuss Nostalgia; what it is and why it's a dying form.
Two new product reviews: Heavy Weapon from Popcap and Zen Wordz, a new
game from a classic game developer. We give away the final Easter egg on
the Year 5 DVD-ROM... and of course, our popular Bits & Bytes segment!
All this, and so much more!
The interview was produced during
Classic Gaming Expo 2004 by Shane R. Monroe and the
late Bryan "Kidhype" Smith. It covers the origins of Amiga emulation,
the motivations behind Amiga Forever, as well as possible future scenarios,
including features planned for future versions of Amiga Forever, such as the
new XML-based Amiga application
description and access framework.

The Amiga Forever show contest received an impressive number of entries. 14
participants gave 100% correct entries. Although it had originally been
announced that of all successful entries only three would have been chosen
at random to win a full Amiga Forever 6 CD, all 14 correct submissions
received the CD.
