Internet News : Dream17 needs your help...
Posted by AmiF on 2006/12/14 12:13:00 (2035 reads) News by the same author
Internet News

Dream17, with the permission of Team 17 have made available their range of Amiga titles. This means that you can download almost every single Team 17 Amiga title for use either on an Amiga system or an emulator.

However ...

However, at some point next year, Dream17 will once again be moving servers. For the first time since its inception nearly three years ago, someone will have to actually pay for its hosting. This hobby project doesn?t make any profit and its owners have had to bear the costs themselves.

Their plans to help retain Dream17 require your assistance. They would like someone with experience of vector art files to convert their logo into a vector file so that they can begin using it as a basis for all sorts of merchandise. More importantly, they need people to actually start clicking the Paypal "donate" button, which currently only generates ?10 worth of donations a year.

Please make a donation, if you want free access to retro titles like Worms ? The Directors Cut, Project X, Kingpin, Overdrive, Body Blows, and the Alien Breed series of games.

For further information contact:

I'd never heard of this project before and Team 17 games are some of the best.

Where are the games which are supposed to be available for download?

The site seems very messy, couldn't find any games

Good project though.

Click this link, select the game which interests you the most, and then click on downloads.

Dream17 is one of those websites we cannot afford to lose. If we want to preserve a part of Amiga history and cater for the retro gaming market, then we must support those people who make websites like this one.

Have they been in contact with Amiga Inc.?

They could arrange a download for the games to
use with their Amiga Forever 2006 download or
even with the 'other' systems.

Worth to try i would say.

That site is awsome. Found a ton of old games and lots of really good info. Team 17 was so awsome!

 Re: Dream17 needs your help...
Good news from Ben Paddon of Dream17

I have been absolutely inundated with response to the recent announcement that Dream17 is in need of assistance. I've had tons of emails of support, a few donations (we're just over the ?50 mark at the moment), four offers from people offering to host the site for us, and two offers from people who are capable of getting a Vector version of the site logo knocked together for some Dream17 merchandise. I have always been of the impression that interest in this website was minimal, as we don't generally get many comments and the forum is practically dead. But judging by the emails I've had... well, my gob is well and truly smacked.

I think it's safe to say that the future of Dream17 is utterly secure for now, and I thank you for your kind words and donations and so forth. Right now my advice to you is to stop donating. We'll get the logo sorted out sooner rather than later and maybe you'll be able to grab a Dream17 tee-shirt or something before Christmas.

Thanks again for the support - you lot are phenomenal!
