Gorky 17 release imminent

Brussels, October 3, 2015
Gorky 17

Hyperion Entertainment is very pleased to announce the imminent release of the long awaited adventure/strategy/RPG crossover game Gorky 17 originally by Metropolis Software House for AmigaOS! After changeful 12 years since its original announcement, the AmigaOS port of Gorky 17 became almost what was Duke Nukem Forever for the PC world. Yet, we made it in two years less ;)

In order to ensure the highest possible quality, Hyperion Entertainment commissioned Frank Menzel and Thomas Claus, who are well known for their original games for AmigaOS 4 under the Entwickler-X label, to stabilize, optimize, enhance and last not least to finalize the AmigaOS port of Gorky 17. The result of their work speaks for itself and shows their high level of professionalism, which allows us now to rightfully claim that the AmigaOS port of Gorky 17 represents the best version of Gorky 17 released on either platform ever!

Exclusive main features of the AmigaOS version:

  • High resolution support by free choice of screenmode
  • English, German, Spanish (text & speech) and French (text only)
  • Mouse wheel support
  • Highly optimized game engine and video player

Minimum requirements:

  • Amiga with 500MHz CPU or faster
  • 256MB of memory
  • Graphics card (Warp3D compatibility recommended!)
  • 700MB of free disk space
  • AmigaOS 4.1 Final Edition
Production is already in progress, all registered dealers got informed about the now available pre-orders and the official start of sales in calendar week 43, 2015. Get in touch with your preferred dealer to place your personal pre-order!
But there is more to it! In cooporation with Alinea Computer Hyperion Entertainment will celebrate 30 years of AmigaOS and the release of Gorky 17 by making Gorky 17's pre-release debut at the Amiga 30 years event in Neuss, Germany on October 10, 2015 in form of a strictly limited amount of early bird units sold separately for 34,95 Euro SRP as well as part of a special fair-super-bundle consisting of
  • Gorky 17 for AmigaOS
  • Gorky 17 poster
  • "powered by AmigaOS" t-shirt
  • "30th anniversary" sticker
  • "AmigaOS" notepad
at a heavily discounted fair-price of 50,- Euro incl. VAT*) in contrary to the regular price of about 65,- Euro incl. VAT.
We all hope you enjoy this fantastic news as much as we do and will stop by at our booths in Neuss on October 10... cheers!

AmigaOS 4.1 Final Edition ISO images for download

Brussels, May 14, 2015

We at Hyperion Entertainment CVBA are more than thrilled about the overwhelming success our customers made out of AmigaOS 4.1 Final Edition! Thank you!

Actually the success is so great, causing especially the supply of AmigaOS 4.1 Final Edition for Classic to dry up during the last weeks and some of your preferred dealers even ran out of stock already, which is of course unacceptable!

In order to remedy this drawback, Hyperion Entertainment CVBA commissioned the production of another batch of AmigaOS 4.1 Final Edition for Classic, which will be available to and from dealers before the end of May - yes, 2015 ;) So if you did not get a copy yet or want another one for your shelf, place your preorder at your favorite dealer now!

Good news for interested A3000 owners: of course we took advantage of this opportunity and fixed the Kicklayout to allow proper booting on A3000 machines without the need for a special bootdisk.

And also some good news for all existing AmigaOS 4.1 Final Edition owners: with immediate effect the CD images of your registered AmigaOS 4.1 Final Edition version(s) are available in the restricted download area. If not done already, please log in yourself and register your copies by entering the serial numbers in the registration form. We hope we eliminated in this way the fear of a broken CD some of you expressed.

In closing, thank you all again for making the huge success of AmigaOS 4.1 Final Edition possible in the first place! This is the best support you can give us for developing AmigaOS, so let's continue to stick together :-)


Clarification of Current Situation

Brussels, April 12, 2015

Contrary to some news items posted on certain websites, Hyperion Entertainment CVBA is not in a state of bankruptcy. Due to an unfortunate set of cirucmstances, the company was temporally listed as "bankrupt" despite the fact that the conditions for bankruptcy were never met and that in the eyes of the law, the company was never bankrupt.

Development of AmigaOS 4 (which recently culminated in the release of AmigaOS 4.1 Final Edition) is and has been ongoing albeit that some resources had to be directed away to support the upcoming hardware of A-EON Technology.

The company is in the process of reorganizing itself by opening up its shareholdership and appointing a new exective director. More details on that will follow when all legal formalities are behind us.

Quite a few AmigaOS 4 supporters have approached us with the question what they can do to help us accelerate development of AmigaOS 4.2.

To that we have a very simple answer: please upgrade all your AmigaOS 4 capable hardware to AmigaOS 4.1 Final Edition.

Not only will AmigaOS 4.1 Final Edition be used as a base-line for future updates, you will also help us to accelerate AmigaOS 4.2 development!

Those of you who have other concrete ideas, we welcome to contact us.

We appreciate your support and we look forward to meet you at any of the upcoming celebrations of the Amiga's 30th birthday!
