    The remake has been in the works for a while. Too bad it's only for the PS4.

    Also, I remember the Armiga project. It was an Indieagogo project a few years ago. Didn't get a completely positive reception on EAB:

    Apparently it's just a glorified emulator with a floppy drive and controller (whatever).

    But what do I know.

    I'm running a bit short on time so I'll just get straight to the critical stuff… Chewits!

    Yes, these are pretty similar to Starburst ("cuboid-shaped, soft chewy sweets"), but not the same thing with a different name. We have Starburst in the UK too – they used to be known as Opal Fruits for decades before the name was changed to maintain consistency across the globe.

    That's probably what it is, but I don't think it's necessarily a bad thing. For a lot of folks who have boxes of old disks and want a reliable piece of physical Amiga hardware that can run them, there aren't a whole lot of other options at that price point.
