Amigaworld.net News   Amigaworld.net News : DiscreetFX Presents - The Vampire V4 Contest Winner
   posted by DiscreetFX on 6-Mar-2021 17:25:34 (1410 reads)
We are very happy to announce the winner of the Vampire V4 Contest. This contest required no purchase and was a gift to one lucky winner in the Amiga community. The winner was randomly selected by an Amiga number generator application. Kevin's Vampire order request has already been submitted and he will also get an awesome brand Amiga joystick from AmigaKit when his Vampire V4 is ready to ship. Here are the links from the hardware developers to order the joystick and a Vampire for anyone else interested in buying them.

The winner was kind enough to provide a Bio about himself, it's listed below.

Kevin Saunders

I work full time work is at a University in Brisbane, Australia as a Graphic/Motion Designer and video editor. Originally born in the UK (Coventry), but have lived most of my life here in Australia.

Hobbies include designing games/graphics/animation on the Commodore Amiga. While my first computer was an Amstrad CPC 464 (and Atari 2600) before that, my passion and love is for the Amiga. The first time I saw the A1000 in a shop window with the amazement of the colours/animation/sound capabilities of this very unique computer. Saved up money with my brother to buy the A500 with SCSI expansion and memory added later. Then moved onto an Amiga1200 with memory/030 accelerator and that’s currently my favourite machine. Did also own an A4000 with Cybervision64 card and started learning Lightwave 3D. I do regret selling both the A1200 and A4000 back in the day but it did help me learn new skills using Photoshop and other tools which then led onto working at a University for 20+ years.

Today I still use Lightwave and Brilliance II for current game projects. Other software I really Dpaint, Directory Opus and other Mac/PC/Ipad tools. In recent times for example I used Brilliance II to create a video animation dedicated to Florian Schneider “Kraftwerk”. On my future to-do’s list I plan to create more animations and push the software/hardware as far as it can go (I do still dream of one-day using Brilliance III).

I have published a few games (Reshoot, ReshootR, Rygar, Iridium and Lunar Jetman Remake). I have also worked with Edgar M.Vigdal and we planned to release Warblade MKII among other games till his passing, we did however release “Dots Adventures” (which I hope to port to the Amiga Classic hardware). Currently games in development for the Amiga are (Reshoot Proxima III, Boss Machine and Aquabyss), all 3 should be release this year (fingers crossed). Helping other developers at the moment with Box Art for Turbo Sprint and a few other people on various Amiga projects.

Over the years I have also worked with A-EON on various posters, branding, software applications (Sketchblock, PPaint, Amistore, X5000, X1222, Amiwest, Amigakit, Enhancer, boot animations etc) as well as creating lots of assets for the well known Amiga 30th, created posters, T-shirts, stickers.

The Amiga scene in 2021 has a great buzz and I love being part of it…. Amiga Forever ☺

I remember the concern some weeks ago that this wasn't happening, and the resulting revelation that DiscreetFX's owner (?) had fallen ill with CoViD, which had caused the delay. Kudos to DiscreetFX for this.

Covid was not a fun experience. I’m glad that’s over and I could get back to the fun of awarding a Vampire V4 to the winner.

Once again, glad to hear that you are recovering from COVID, and thank you for your generosity in setting up this contest. Congrats to the winner (darn, I really wanted that Vampire V4 for myself), and I'm really glad to see it go to a very productive member of the Amiga community. If I could only be half as productive in creating art and/or programming for this community, I would be ecstatic. Thanks also to AmigaKit for the donation of the joystick. It is great that we have such an active community, and great community members, after all the turmoil the Amiga community has suffered through over the past 35+ years.

As the winner wrote in his Bio, Amiga Forever!

Thanks for the kind words AmigaDave. AmigaKit did not donate the joystick, it’s a gift from DiscreetFX like the Vampire V4..
