29.06.2020 - 'EON AGA' - new Amiga game in development
EON is a game designed and published in 2014 for PC by François Perez, also known as Wonderboy Bobi and is currently being recreated from scratch for Amiga AGA / CD32. The devs are also investigating the possibility of investing time in adapting it to Vampire and AmigaNG (MorphOS, AmigaOS4, AROS, etc ...), but this is still not certain, everything will depend on the strengths that remain after finish the AGA version and the interest that we see in those systems. In the technical section of the game, EON is designed to make use of the dualplayfield and scroll parallax for almost the entire game, thus obtaining a visual and gaming experience worthy of an AGA machine. The main development will be for AMIGA AGA with 020 to 14Mhz and 2 Mb of ram, so you will need at least one Amiga 1200 or a CD32.

28.06.2020 - Making a C64/C65 compatible computer - Ultrasonic communications for the MEGAphone: Testing speaker and microphone performance
This might sound like a rather strange thing to be working on, but there is a reason. The NLnet Foundation has taken an interest in the MEGAphone as a secure and "sovereign" communications device, that can play a role in civil society. This largely aligns with what I have previously said about the need for such self-sovereign communications systems in the face of the coming digital winter...
