Anniversary: Computer club APC&TCP turns 20
Press release: Once there were two computer clubs. APC and TCP. 20 years ago (if anyone knows the exact date, please report), these two computer clubs joined.

Within a very short period of time, APC&TCP computer club became one of the biggest Amiga clubs in Germany with nearly 500 members.

APC&TCP afterwards published one of the most widespread Amiga floppy disk magazines: Amiga Fire and its successor NoCover.

Since many members were programmers, it was decided to distribute their software ourselves. Therefore in May 1992 APC&TCP became private partnership. The aim was to distribute public domain, shareware and commercial software in a way of maximum benefit for the developers. Thus PD disks were passed on at cost price of 1 DM. The profit-sharing of 50% for the programmer was unusually high.

Programs like CygnusEd, DigiBoosterPro and Databench as well as games like Flyin High and Pinball Brain Damage are only a few examples of our software.

Besides our own shareware series and many commercial software titles, we were also working for various companies. We took care of the distribution of promoting games and created cover CDs for magazines such as Amiga Plus, Amiga Games and Amiga Special. For some time we also created the PD series disks of Amiga Magazine, wrote reviews for various magazines and organized ticket sales for Amiga shows and much more.

In 1997 we decided to publish a print-magazine for the Amiga. The Amiga Future was first published by ICP-Verlag, then by Falke-Verlag and since issue 27 APC&TCP also acted as the publisher.

Now we have released issue 96 and issue 100 is getting close. Meanwhile APC&TCP also sells various Amiga merchandising products, such as stickers, mouse pads, posters and much more. Thus now, after 20 years, APC&TCP still exists. To celebrate this, we have some special offers in our online shop. These offers are only available in May 2012.

To the next 20 years!
