C64 remake: Raid Over Moscow (prototype)
A very early version of a remake of the C64 classic Raid over Moscow was released. Author 'earok' would finish developing the game if there is sufficient interest.

Still there are not any sound effects. Besides, not all scenes of the original game have been implemented. Currently a joystick or joypad with two buttons is required. (cg) (Translation: dr)

AmigaOS 4: Entwickler-X is working on a new video player "Emotion"
According to Thomas 'imagodespira' Claus in a comment on, Entwickler-X currently is working on a new, Reaction-based video player for AmigaOS 4. The project is called "Emotion" (video) and is supposed to be adapted to AmigaOS as much as possible, but also will concentrate on basic functions.

Emotion can scale via compositing or can use overlay on systems equipped with older graphic boards. For the codecs, parts of ffmpeg are used.

Entwickler-X started the project in April and it is not clear when he can finish it - currently ffmpeg is ported and converted into an Amiga library. Emotion will be commercially sold, the price will be about 20 Euro. (cg) (Translation: dr)
