Programmers listen up, we are offering a deal of a lifetime hopefully. The Amiga, MorphOS & Vampire never got a port of the arcade classic game Satan's Hollow and that's a bummer. To rub salt into the wound the C64 did get a port, how fair and just is that?

Lets change this injustice together and make a Satan’s Hollow inspired game.. S.H. is a relatively simple shooter like Galaga and should not be hard to code. We want to branch out into the game business and this is a simple way in we hope. We need your help and we will pay you. Simply code something inspired by Satan's Hollow to the Amiga, Vampire or MorphOS and we will give it away for free. That's not all though we hope to make this game skin-able, something the arcade original never had. Which means we will sell optional add on skins (backgrounds/enemy/ships/sound collections for you guessed it $6.66 each per bundle.

Don't worry about creating the add on skins, well take care of that part. If you join us and it's a great fit feel free to have first dibs on all our future game coding projects. Simple and sweet right? Contact us soon please.

Best regards

I trust that as a most professional company on Amiga business you have secured license from Warner bros so this project wont bite coders ass?

@Rose

Name of our game will be different and will be much improved. No IP will be infringed upon. Also, our graphics will look really nice. Not like the dated old looking graphics of Satan’s Hollow.

Well if this is the case don’t write « port the game Satan’s Hollow » but write a game like it.

@kamelito

Yea, you’re right. I thought it through a bit more after posting. Per your recordation I’ve edited the original post to make it more accurate.

FYI, we are still looking for a coder for this project. It should only be a couple of weekends part time work.

@DiscreetFX

do you have any requirements for the version or AmigaOS, or model of hardware that this new game will run on? For example, are you requiring the programmer to aim for a stock A500 Amiga hardware with AmigaOS3.1 and newer, or perhaps you don't care which Amiga the programmer aims this new game at, as a minimum spec for the game to run on?

Such requirements might eliminate certain programming languages from consideration, such as Hollywood, as the finished game probably would not run well on a stock A500, unless it is emulated and running faster than the real Amiga hardware is capable of, not to mention that a Hollywood game might need more RAM that a stock A500 provides.

Just wondering what you are looking for, since you're going to be providing the graphics for extra skins and themes.

@amigadave

The game is so basic it will probably run on any flavor of Amiga even an A500. We could write up some official system requirements though, that’s not a problem. I think the original game was 64k or something like that. Of course the programmer will have input on this too since they have a favorite coding style. I can provide all the graphics to the game unless an artist wants to join the project and help with that. I don’t expect to rip the graphics from the original game that this will be an inspiration from since they look so dated and poor in 2021. This is just a fun easy little weekend project that helps us attain our goal of attracting several Amiga programmers and working with them in the coming years on 10 Amiga game ideas we have.
