Another FPGA-based CPU card in developement
Mike Stirling is building a FPGA-based accelerator board which will use the open source 68k core TG68 as CPU. The latest prototypes still use a FPGA developer board (Terasic DE0 Nano) which is connected to the CPU socket of the Amiga. Using self made boards will follow later.

In contrast to the well-known Vampire, here it will be focused on maximum compatibility. Additional to the fast processor and Fast-RAM, the current prototypes also can access SD cards. First of all the board is being developed for the Amiga 500 which is followed by versions for other Amiga models. (cg) (Translation: (dr)

Dungeon Crawler: Port of "Legacy" (2003) announced
Legacy is a classic Dungeon Crawler like Dungeon Master or Eye of the Beholder which was released in 2003 for different PDA platforms. Recently Szilárd 'BSzili' Biró has released a limited demo version of an Amiga port (video of the intro) but also pointed out that it is unlikely that a full version will be available due to the legal status.

Obviously a publisher called Inked Pixel Software has addressed this situation and has announced via Indie Retro News that it is going to commercially distribute the full Amiga version.

A date for the release has not been set. The game requires a harddrive, Kickstart 3.1 and an AGA-Amiga with 4 MB Fast-RAM or an ECS-Amiga with 68020 processor and 6 MB RAM. Additional to a screen solution of 320x240, also a solution of 640x480 is supported which is meant for graphics card. (cg) (Translation: (dr)
