Today's game industry is rift with old worn out ideas that have be rehashed time and time again, have you played to many FPS or RTS games? With GameShop we are hoping to nurture new game developers with fresh ideas for the gaming industry. Now being broke does not mean your great game idea will not be published.

2004 should be a banner year for Amiga & Amiga compatible systems. All those new customers will need relaxing and entertaining games on their systems. And new game authors need free web hosting and low cost no nonsense publishing terms to get their titles available to that user base.
