Underground Arcade Introduction

Welcome to the Underground Arcade website/blog. Until we have our own site, this will be our temporary home on the web where we can keep you updated on games being developed here at Underground Arcade.

Our aim is to produce commercial-quality games for classic Amiga systems, as well as supporting future AmigaOS4 game development. Currently we have several games in the works, at various stages of development, for both AGA and OCS/ECS classic Amigas. We hope to have at least two full games completed and ready for distribution this year.

Among the games we're working on are a horizontally scrolling shoot-em-up called Annihilation, as well as a platform adventure game currently titled Halloween Nightmare. Annihilation will feature classic arcade style controls and gameplay, five huge levels, an exciting soundtrack, and AGA graphics! Halloween Nightmare plays like a retro console style game, where you explore many levels, meeting interesting characters and fighting nasty Halloween bad guys, as well as collecting candy along the way! It runs on any Amiga, although a faster CPU and RAM help.

But that's not all! Underground Arcade is an ideas factory, and we're coming up with lots of game ideas, most of which will hopefully come to fruition. But we can't do it alone. We still need help if we are to complete these games on time. If you have any skills you'd like to lend towards creating new Amiga games, please get in contact with us. We'd especially appreciate any pixel artists and coders. Even if you just have some old code, graphics or mods you may want to donate, we'd appreciate it. :)

So, have a look around, hopefully we'll have regular posts here to keep everyone updated on our projects.

Long live the Amiga!
