    Less than a quater of the funds needed now to get this project going but more funds passed 12K means better quality in the production of the book. With 13 days left and with the amount gained, it could go well passed the target.

    Yep - he did Wizball as well. Also now talking to Jonathan Dunn - the Ocean Loader man!

    Final stretch... 80% now funded.

    @sabreman
    Maybe the moderators on the forums either work for or have contact with the higher ups at EG.

    Worth a try to see if they will slap a quick article together!!

    @bracken3000 I had that on my beloved Amiga 500 and can confirm I got my money's worth and then some! One of my favourite collections ever. Happy memories!

    Admit it bracken, you're writing it?

    Give yourself 5 or gig, you're worth it.

    This was my fav pack. I lusted after it for an age before my birthday finally came around.

    I thought Target Renegade was Imagine?

    Imagine was part of Ocean I think.

    Looks like The In Crowd pack is a mix of publishers with Palace(Barbarian), Titus (Crazy Cars), Predator (Activision (IIRC)) and I'm pretty sure Karnov was by someone else but can't remember. (maybe I should've researched but these are from memory). And yes, Imagine was an Ocean label from the mid-80s. Book looks interesting but Kickstarter UK puts me off as I like the convenient Amazon payments on KS US.

    My mate had this, it was costly back in the day

    There was a competition to win that pack on the original Batman '89 rental release. I phoned up the 0898 number several times, probably to the point where I paid for half an Amiga. I was in oh so much trouble when my parents found out.

    I still remember the smell as it was unboxed. I genuinely dont think I have ever been so excited to open a christmas present. i probably wasnt far off n64 kid.

    I say I, it was a joint present between me and my brother but, y'know, being older by a year, you have to make sure everything works properly.
