The AmigaWave video discusses the recent retro news of the week and the disastrous conversions of Sierra to Amiga. It features a discussion between the narrator and another person regarding the cost of upgrading to newer versions of RTG software. The narrator then goes on to talk about his own experience with a Raspberry Pi and Kika, a new Amiga emulator. He mentions that it is a great achievement that this emulator is available for free, and that it is moving forward in the right direction by being pay-to-play.
The AmigaWave video discusses the disastrous conversions of Sierra games to Amiga platforms in the early 1990s. It features a discussion of the 128-cash version of the PC Junior, which cost 1,269 U.S. dollars in the early 1990s. The video also mentions the King Quest game, which was one of the best-selling Sierra games at the time.
The YouTube video "AmigaWave #289" discusses the history of Sierra's development of games for the Amiga platform, as well as the poor quality of many of the ports of Sierra games to Amiga. The video interviews Carlos Vargas, who explains that the developers were trying to create a more faithful conversion, but it was difficult because the Amiga's palette was limited to 256 colors. He also discusses the benefits of using a fixed palette for all Amiga graphical adventures. The video discusses how Sierra closed down its Amiga development division, and how this has led to a decline in the popularity of Amiga computers.
