Gorky 17 in the shops, magazines and blogs!

Brussels, December 7, 2015Gorky 17

Since the initial show release at Amiga30.de in Neuss and the regular start of sales the week after, Gorky 17 for AmigaOS was very well received in the community and the press (Amiga Future #117). The well known AmigaOS dedicated blogger Epsilon recently published an article on Epsilon's Amiga blog about Gorky 17, which gives a great overview from unboxing over installation, first start and of course the game itself. A highly recommended read to everybody interested in Gorky 17!

The AmigaOS version was released to the public first at Amiga30.de in Neuss at October 10, 2015 and is available for regular purchase from many Amiga dealers since October 19, 2015.

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
