Farewell, Dave :(

Brussels, February 21, 2016
Dave Needle, 2011

With deepest regret we learnt that Dave Needle passed away on February 20, 2016.

As most of you know, Dave was one of the original engineers who created the AMIGA in the team around Jay Miner. Without people like Dave we would never have been able to feel the joy of a real personal computer.

The management of Hyperion Entertainment CVBA and the whole team behind AmigaOS offer their sincere condolences to family Needle and wish them a lot of strength and all the best.
We all will sadly miss Dave.

AmigaOS 3.1 source code leak - official statement

 
Brussels, January 5, 2016

Hyperion Entertainment wishes a happy New Year 2016 everybody!

The days between last Christmas and New Year were actually clouded by the sad fact that the source code of AmigaOS 3.1 and additional content dating back to 1994 was published and widely spread without permission of the rights-holder. Note that no code of AmigaOS 4.x was released or distributed.

Hyperion Entertainment holds an exclusive, world-wide, perpetual source-code license to the intellectual property of AmigaOS 3.1 and additional content as documented in the publicly available settlement agreement between Hyperion Entertainment and Amiga, Inc. which has taken the form of a stipulated judgement.

Based on this license AmigaOS 4.x development was started in 2001 by Hyperion Entertainment using the AmigaOS 3.1 code as a basis and as the direct successor of what Commodore left behind in 1994. AmigaOS 4.x is an actively developed product on sale and still incorporates a substantial amount of AmigaOS 3.1 code.
 
While this would be already more than enough of a reason to care about the unauthorised disclosure and distribution, it is also the very same settlement agreement which made all of this possible in the first place, which contractually requires Hyperion to enforce and protect any intellectual property rights associated with AmigaOS including the AmigaOS 3.1 source-code.

This entails that Hyperion Entertainment will examine all possible legal action against any unauthorised source of or use of this material it is aware of. All of this leads up to the reason why we "make such a fuss" about code which is more than 20 years old by now. While the original leak seems to stem from someone outside of the active community, it is even more sad to see quite some of the remaining active users happily participate in distributing this unauthorised copy, compromising years of development work and all possible future versions of AmigaOS and therefore biting the hand that feeds them against all common sense and in blatant violation of copyright.

Having said that, our most special thanks go to all loyal customers, user groups, dealers, partners and all others who showed and continue to show their support to us. You are the reason why AmigaOS still exists, why it remains under active development and why we care.

Thank you,
on behalf of Hyperion Entertainment, all associated developers, translators and testers.

Gorky 17 in the shops, magazines and blogs!

Brussels, December 7, 2015Gorky 17

Since the initial show release at Amiga30.de in Neuss and the regular start of sales the week after, Gorky 17 for AmigaOS was very well received in the community and the press (Amiga Future #117). The well known AmigaOS dedicated blogger Epsilon recently published an article on Epsilon's Amiga blog about Gorky 17, which gives a great overview from unboxing over installation, first start and of course the game itself. A highly recommended read to everybody interested in Gorky 17!

 

Gorky 17  is a science-fiction strategy role-playing game originally developed by Metropolis Software House in 1999 and ported to AmigaOS 4.1 Final Edition by Hyperion Entertainment. The AmigaOS version was released to the public first at Amiga30.de in Neuss at October 10, 2015 and is available for regular purchase from many Amiga dealers since October 19, 2015.
