16-bit Memories

Childhood, Christmas time, friends, family, joy, happiness ... and, a new toy on my desk. Toy that will define my life, responsible for such a beautiful experiences from my childhood. Kids imaginary world, lost over time, a glimpse of it left in my head, a glimpse of priceless memory.
But, it wouldn't be such a great experience if it wasn't for my friends... do you guys remember how we spent hours playing games, competing and exploring these new digital frontiers?

I must admit I had Atari ST not Amiga ;), but my friend had Amiga and it had way better graphics and sound than my ST. So that's the reason why I decided to model Amiga for this illustration, out of respect. :)

Very nice visual and memories! I've used this here: Retrojen Fanzine - Time Warp Background

Very thanks!
Any chance you have a higher resolution of this image? This is the best image of an Amiga that I have found and I like to use it as a wallpaper, but I want to do it justice on the new fancy high resolution monitors.

A friend of mine had the Atari 520 STE, we spent our saturdays playing Rick Dangerous, Kick Off, Maupiti Island, Prince of Persia, Another World, Xenon 2, etc ...
Later I got the Amiga 600, and games like Dune, or Moonstone : a hard days knight, sort of rpg with gore fights.
I miss these good times.

I love this so much that it actually hurts. It's like drowning in childhood nostalgia.

Ah i remember this game, this one i used to use to showoff what i thought was futuristic graphics for the time...    Is everything in this image rendered?? if so its mind blowing, you must be running a real supercomputer. I could swear this is just a photograph until i saw the army soldiers breaking apart the monitor. The only thing that stands out as cgi to my eye is the specular reflection on the lampshade, and the outside of the window, but the window totally works and is aesthetically pleasing.

I remember when I got my Amiga 500 with the 512K ram expansion to a total whopping 1 megabyte of Ram memory. Thirty years ago that was a lot of Ram, most PC's had 128 to 256 K of Ram.  Had a lot of fun with it and gained valuable experience for my eventual career in computer graphics, good times and happy memories!
