software AROS   software AROS : AROS Playground - Games Website Launch
   posted by hardwired on 11-Jun-2012 17:14:44 (2106 reads)
AROS Playground is the first site dedicated to everything that involves gaming on AROS - AROS Research Operating System.
It's goal is to offer an important database on every recent game available to AROS and some info regarding several aspects of the software and hardware needed.
Add to your favourites links: http://arosgamer.blogspot.pt/

Read more...


We'll do our best to keep you informed on the latest games/emulators/tools released on AROS, what is required to run them, on the development and developers involved, deliver interviews, reviews chronicles and sites to download what is required.

We'll try to look in depth to one of AROS strongest points - 3D GFX hardware acceleration, but also to portability issues, CPU compatibilities and much more.

Right now we already have 29 major games covered on the database, and we start of with a interview to Mathias Rustlers (Mazze), one of AROS senior developers.

We intend to go further and add more interviews, some which will not be strictly AROS related, but Amiga related as well!...

Welcome to the one place where Gaming on AROS is the "Kitty Playground"!

We hope you enjoy...

The AROS Playground Team

Cool stuff. Nicely presented site, lots of content, without being messy. It also cool that aros has progressed to a point that something like this is warranted. AROS is turning into a pretty nice gaming machine these days.

Very beutifull site.

Is there such sites for MOS and AOS games?

Should/could there be common site?

I thank all the compliments, from everyone here on behalf of myself and the rest of the team.

As for the criticisms I've seen of this being a separate project from the rest of the Amiga, It has nothing to do with rivalries and such divisional schemes.
It's a very complex project regarding AROS alone - It's growing at an increasing ryhtm, and it's hard to keep up.
I prefer that things evolve naturally, and if other people and sites wish we are open to join forces and share material regarding Amiga Entertainment/Gaming area.
There are another projects that target different machines and objectives, with their own history and material.

For example the usual annual Obligement contest for best game of the year will certainly benifit from AROS Playground material, and we are open to more collaboration with other sites and Amiga resources.

There's a similar website devoted to OS4 games, maintained by NubeCheCorre, in italian only though: http://www.os4games.it/
Unfortunately it seems to be not updated anymore.

A nice looking site :)

@KimmoK
It's not exactly the same, but AmigaOS4 does have this:

@Hardwired (I remember the Demo)
Very nice site, nice and simple design and graphically very nice. I hope you guys will keep up the good work on the site, I will certainly follow it even if I'm not an AROS user atm.
