Title: Amtix Annual
Post by: boyo on 23:29, 08 November 18
After creating a new Crash and ZZap! 64 Annual - Roger, Oli and I are contemplating creating a new Amtix. Would this have any interest?

Title: Amtix! Annual?

I don't use Facebook, but if this means that there could be an Amtix! Annual, I'm all in!

(I have the annuals for the speccy and the C64 and they're a nice read even if I never read the magazines back in the day)

EDIT: Sorry, it was already mentioned here: http://www.cpcwiki.eu/forum/news-events/amtix-annual/msg167014/

@Gryzor (http://www.cpcwiki.eu/forum/index.php?action=profile;u=1) can you merge or delete this one? I don't know if that's even possible :D Thanks!

I'm interested, but I don't use FB and that's not going to change I'm afraid.

I already have both Crash and Zzap! annuals and they're great. I'd love an Amtix! annual, the CPC and its community deserves it.

All my support.

Ohhh yes please!


Although like Reidrac I don't use Facebook so I hope I don't miss any updates...

I'm afraid it wouldn't be of interest to me. Amtix! was 'before my time', and as it only lasted for 18 issues (if you discount issue 0), in my opinion, it didn't have the same cultural impact on the CPC scene that Crash and ZZap!64 did on their respective user base.

On the other hand, if you could somehow acquire the rights to produce an Amstrad Action annual, that would certainly interest me! :)

I don't even remember knowing about Amtix until I found CPC websites like this one.  Certainly don't remember it being on the shelves where I bought Amstrad Action when I was a kid as I feel I would have grabbed it too for more CPC coverage. 

Actually gonna start reading the scanned versions of the magazine and see if I like it.  Might be interesting to see a different perspective from that era on various CPC  games
oh.. it didn't last long. :O

I didn't know about the magazine back then, but if you ask me... if there's new high quality content covering the CPC, I'm in!

(I didn't know Crash or Zzap! but the annuals are worth a read)

No facebook either, but I'd be interested.
