From Bed­rooms To Bil­lions: The Amiga Years

EDGE - - KNOWLEDGE THIS MONTH -­gayears The fol­low-up to Anthony and Ni­cola Caulfield’s cel­e­brated From Bed­room To Bil­lions doc­u­men­tary was re­leased ear­lier this year, but it’s now avail­able as a two-disc spe­cial edi­tion with a litany of ex­tras. The film it­self charts the rise of Amiga – from the coali­tion of Atari and Ap­ple em­ploy­ees through to the A500’s gamemak­ing revolution – and in­cludes pas­sion­ate tes­ti­mony from those in­volved in both the cre­ation of the ma­chines and the games that demon­strated their power. It’s a lit­tle dense at times, but as packed with nos­tal­gic footage as it is in­sight.
