Forget Mac versus PC, there was a time when Amiga reigned supreme — at least in the heart of many computer gamers of a certain age. The Amiga 500 simply blew other computers from the ’80s away, especially in the gaming department. But then the ’90s happened (and you know where this is going): Microsoft won, Apple nearly went bankrupt and Sony introduced the world to Crash Bandicoot. So what about all those old classics like Alien Breed and Wings? Amiga Games Incorporated, and its library of over 300 titles, have been purchased for $500,000 by Writers’ Group, a company that acquires and distributes digital content. The new owner is promising several announcements over the next few weeks, and hopefully one of them has to do with Overdrive.
