Within the bowels of The Games Freezer there is a disk box choc full of AMIGA video games disks.....consigned to The RetroGaming Deep Freeze .
Most of the disks are original AMIGA games (without their beautiful boxes) and some are not so original (probably from some dodgy dude at car boot sale in 1995....
Imagine we could delve back into this treasure trove without having to source the Amazing AMIGA....


In fact imagine an improved 1.3 version of The AMIGA...

One that looks and sounds just as cool as the original if not that bit better!

Well look what we have here then!

The Idea....

"Wouldn't it be great to be able to use all those aging Amiga disks again?
Maybe the original Amiga is a bit big and video quality not so good..."

The Project

"... A smaller version of The Amiga, with modern connections would be awesome, wouldn't it?. 
That's what the Armiga Project have done.... 
They have taken modern technology and made it work with good old AMIGA floppies!"

Read what the Armiga Project Team have to say 
about their amazing project......



"The Armiga Project is born from the feeling that something is missing in today's games. Lot's of people look back to the old consoles and computers and remember the feelings they had.


Some of this sensations can be taken back with emulators, but much of the experience is missing; it's not only the game, it's a whole. Inserting the cartridge in a 16-Bit console, the floppy disk load times..., the look and feel of the old stuff...

All this is specially true in some systems and the Commodore Amiga 500 is, with no doubt, one of them. It was a breaktrhough in its time and still now it fascinates engineers all around the world. One proof of the deep footprint it left on the users is that lots of them keep the original computer and most of them have a box full of games.

There are some big problems now with the system, though: they are too big by todays standards, suitable for just one thing and A/V quality is low and requires legacy connectors.

Wouldn't it be great, we thought, if we could take the whole experience back, but with improved A/V quality, using modern connectors, in a small form factor and adding versatility?. 

That's where it all began. Taking off-the-shell components and adding custom designed ones, we already have the first prototypes working!

In a nutshell, the Armiga Project is a mix of hardware and software that aims to take back the original Amiga experience..., even its look and feel!"
