No, it isn't ready yet.
But the Natami almost is.
Can you imagine a Kick Off on an Amiga 7000 with 68070 processor, 256Mb RAM and AAA chipset?

If a shoot'em-up can look like this, how KO could be? I mean with updated graphics and sounds...

Hello everybody, by the way...

... and special greeting to Thorsten :)

Hey!!! Seems like way to go ffs :)

What would such a machine cost?

It isn't a product for the masses: small production, high costs.
I don't know the price yet but I would bet on 599,90 Euro for the top model.
I hope to be wrong :(

Without a doubt is the more promising real Amiga-like project I've seen so far.
A custom KO2 would be the icing on the cake.

Undoubtably pricey but very impressive too - an amiga fan's dream! 8) Agree that KO2 would be incredible and that shooter looks cool but do you know of any other games being updated for this?

Btw welcome to the forum, Candyman. :)

I guess that the card will come in bundle with some games but they are still under development...

Thanks for the welcome but if you look my subscription is from ages... :P

Impressive!

I would probably be more excited if I was an Amiga fan though ;)

You're right. I thought you were a newcomer but you're before my time here! Welcome back then? :wink:

Candyman isn't actually a new in town, he joined a the Rome 2007 world cup and Some Milan tournament. as the most of the Italian player. It is a rare case of slow posting though!

This project is really interesting. Now we should see if there will be software houses interested to this hardware.

I don't thing any software house will be interested... If Natami would sell 1000 motherboards should be a success...
But some bounty games, requests by fans, should be possible.

If KO2CV in hi-res and true color would be released, I think that any on these forums would pay 50 Euro at least for it. In the real market should have a smaller price to sell.

According to me the software for the Natami will be created by users themselves.

THAT would be very interesting to see (about the grapics and the sound) please keep us updated about this - and welcome onboard!

There's nothing to be kept updated about, let's not get carried away. It's a 'what if' thread about a piece of hardware very few people will buy when it's out and almost no software houses will support. If we ever seen an aesthetically enhanced version of Kick Off 2 it will be done by Steve Camber and certainly not on Natami, but on a PC.

Come on, Alkis! Don't be so pragmatic! Leave open a window for us dreamers!
