Hello Everyone,

While I don't yet have a Vampire card, i'm setting my sights on the Vampire 1200.
Have been really enjoying following from a distance, probably a good time be here now. 

I would post some images of potential projects but first post seems limited to text only ...

Been a big Amiga fan, develop games for Classic and other platforms. Do alot of work for both Classic and NG machines, Vampire needs to be added to that list.

Most of my posts are here:

Great to see you here Kevin!

And checked out your site+EAB and I really hope you find the time and resource+support to expand into the Vampire platform.

Stuff on that page looks nice. Hope you will soon have a vampirised Amiga and your games will work on it flawlessly :)

Hi Hugo,
 
thank you, yes the Iridium Kickstarter has reached 100% (we have a low Kickstarter goal, as its our first one, nice to have a successful start), still our focus is for it to be on Nintendo Switch, seems quite challenging to reach that goal, fingers crossed.

All 3 members of the team are big Amiga fans.  Akira does the awesome music, James is the coder (we finished a remake of Lunar Jetman) EXTERNAL LINK (still think this has potential of an Amiga Conversion, either Classic or Vampire based)
 
James also has an unrealised Blitz Basic Thrust style game that im hoping to help him with after Iridium.

What resolution do you aim for?

On Vampire you can easily make a game like those in resolution up to 640x360 or 960x540 and with 16bit or 24bit colors.

Hi Gunnar,

Thankyou for posting those resolutions, I can start doing some tests and seeing how it looks in both. Happy to still stick to 256 colours, depending on game of course handy to have that option. 

Main issue will be finding a coder interested, as I have quite a few concepts at various stages of development that were initially designs for mobile phones

Fist game might be... keep it simple (eg Tetris) or similar.

P.S. no idea how to change my avatar here? (no profile button options)

yes very slick, in-fact it was the video that got my real attention to the Vampire, it was posted sometime ago (a few years)... curious on its development.

CLICK HERE some good info on the game specs that i must pay some attention too. very cool.
