AmigaOS 4: Gorky 17 released
Press release: Brussels, October 3, 2015. Hyperion Entertainment is very pleased to announce the imminent release of the long awaited adventure/strategy/RPG crossover game Gorky 17 originally by Metropolis Software House for AmigaOS! After changeful 12 years since its original announcement, the AmigaOS port of Gorky 17 became almost what was Duke Nukem Forever for the PC world. Yet, we made it in two years less ;)

In order to ensure the highest possible quality, Hyperion Entertainment commissioned Frank Menzel and Thomas Claus, who are well known for their original games for AmigaOS 4 under the Entwickler-X label, to stabilize, optimize, enhance and last not least to finalize the AmigaOS port of Gorky 17. The result of their work speaks for itself and shows their high level of professionalism, which allows us now to rightfully claim that the AmigaOS port of Gorky 17 represents the best version of Gorky 17 released on either platform ever!

Exclusive main features of the AmigaOS version:
  • High resolution support by free choice of screenmode
  • English, German, Spanish (text & speech) and French (text only)
  • Mouse wheel support
  • Highly optimized game engine and video player
Minimum requirements:
  • Amiga with 500 MHz CPU or faster
  • 256 MB of memory
  • Graphics card (Warp3D compatibility recommended!)
  • 700 MB of free disk space
  • AmigaOS 4.1 Final Edition
Production is already in progress, all registered dealers got informed about the now available pre-orders and the official start of sales in calendar week 43, 2015. Get in touch with your preferred dealer to place your personal pre-order!

But there is more to it! In cooporation with Alinea Computer Hyperion Entertainment will celebrate 30 years of AmigaOS and the release of Gorky 17 by making Gorky 17's pre-release debut at the Amiga 30 years event in Neuss, Germany on October 10, 2015 in form of a strictly limited amount of early bird units sold separately for 34,95 Euro SRP as well as part of a special fair-super-bundle consisting of
  • Gorky 17 for AmigaOS
  • Gorky 17 poster
  • "powered by AmigaOS" t-shirt
  • "30th anniversary" sticker
  • "AmigaOS" notepad
at a heavily discounted fair-price of 50,- Euro incl. VAT*) in contrary to the regular price of about 65,- Euro incl. VAT.

We all hope you enjoy this fantastic news as much as we do and will stop by at our booths in Neuss on October 10... cheers! (snx) (Translation: dr)

Hardware: SCSI-adapter for SD-cards
Using SCSI2SD it is possible to use SD-cards as SCSI-harddrives. The adapter is available in two different versions: Additional to the 3,5" standard version, there is also a 2,5"-version meant for Apple's PowerBook, which can replace its internal harddrive.

The adapter was tested with the following Amiga models:
  • Amiga 500+ with GVP A530
  • Amiga 500 KS 1.3 with Oktagon 508 SCSI-2 controller
  • Amiga 2000 (B2000 rev 6.4 ECS) with DKB RapidFire SCSI 1 card
  • Amiga 4000 equipped with CyberStorm PPC using 68 pin adapter
Since the developers ship the SCSI2SD-adapter from Australia and another trader is situated in China, Alex Perez currently offers the 3,5"-version from USA in two different options, which include a SD-card with 4 GB or 256 MB. (snx) (Translation: dr)
