My book arrived a few days ago along with pen, CD, pin badge, bookmark stretch goals.

Very impressive, not just excellent images, the editorial is interesting and well written.

@A1200

Good stuff! Hopefully the Brian Bagnall book won't be much longer And then we'll have to Kickstart the second half to be published At least the story from 1987 to 1994 is available to the backers as an e-book.

@A1200

Does it feature Napalm from Clickboom!? All these type of books seem to leave it out!

Do you know if the book will be available to buy elsewhere? I missed backing this one and would really love it.

@Amiboy

You can hit the pledge button I believe and it takes you to a package deal to buy it with the extra goodies too.

I guess I should have stumped up the Ł100 for the Review backing tier and written my own review! Those poor Slovakian programmers at Ablaze Entertainment get almost no credit for the Amiga's best RTS game. It's a crime! It's like the Clickboom! lady steals the show

This is also a beautiful book, a real work of art.

@A1200 & thread

How does it compare to the book Commodore Amiga: A Visual Commpendium?

@BigD

The visual compendium is a much thicker book but the pictures and editorial are of equal quality.
