Amiga PD Charityware
Amiga PD is a charityware site - if you download any disk images you are encouraged to donate to our chosen charity - Mencap - at our justgiving page.
Suggested donations are £1 per disk image download as this was the cost of obtaining a disk back in the 1990s. Thank you.

Were there any game projects which were left unfinished or unpublished?
If so are there any playable demos which still survive?
Not on Amga. Everything was "published" in some way becuase I've made everthing free. I've lost a lot though, particularly some "CDA Digialbums" I made, PD disks, my very earliest music. When I switched to PC the Amiga disks became useless. Juergen Beck from Back 2 The Roots helped me put my Amiga games and the source code onto CD for me, so that stopped things being lost forever (that said I'm now wondering if I have any of that left on my PC - think it's all gone for good!)
On your website you describes yourself as an artist, musician and
computer programmer. Which of these activities do you enjoy the most and
what are you currently working on?
I'm an artist now and I don't play games or program them. I paint fantastical oil paintings, and I write music for my small label Cornutopia Music, and I still write game music and sound effects for my website IndieSFX. Flatspace II on PC is still quite a popular game and I've kept hold of the Flatspace 3 plans but I haven't programmed the computer in years. For the time being I'm happy working as an artist.
AmigaPd would like to thank Mark Sheeky for his time and support with creating this page. Remember to visit his current website to see his current projects.
