This month, we’re going to dive into the world of obscure Amiga games and their music. The Amiga computer was a popular platform in Europe in the 1980s and 1990s, known for its impressive sound and graphics capabilities. Despite being overshadowed by other gaming systems of the time in North America, the Amiga had a loyal fanbase and a rich library of games with unique soundtracks. In this episode, Ed explores some of the lesser-known titles from the Amiga era and showcases the talented composers who brought these games to life. He plays some of his favorite tracks from these games and discusses the gameplay mechanics that made them so unique.
