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!
UPDATE: Gorky 17 is now released and available at your dealer. Read here what Amiga blogger Epsilon has to say about it.
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
- Amiga with 500MHz CPU or faster
- 256MB of memory
- Graphics card (Warp3D compatibility recommended!)
- 700MB of free disk space

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!
