#AMIGApril

AmigApril logo

#AMIGApril is a month-long chain raid event on Twitch to promote gaming on the Amiga platform. In short we use #AMIGApril in the title and tags when we stream Amiga during April and raid out to other streamers who are doing the same thing. We aim to help people meet new people, to help viewers find streamers they like but don’t yet know of, and to spread the Amiga joy message!

Below you can see the streamers who we know are taking part. If you want to participate, you can just do it on your own! If you’d like to be featured on the list, hit me up on Twitch (retroDemiurgi) or Discord (demiurgi). You can also discuss #AMIGApril on the AmigaLive Discord server. Remember to raid out to other #AMIGApril streams, otherwise this doesn’t work!

Also, if you don’t have original hardware and don’t quite know where to start with emulating, feel free to ask! We can also help you pick games that might interest you depending on your taste. First things first: download AmigaLive!

Competition/Challenges

If you can’t think of what to play and/or are interested in a little competition, we also offer completely optional challenges to complete during April and a prize for the winner.

These are not required for streaming with the tag and you can take part in this competition without streaming as well! Post your screenshots (and video links) on the AmigaLive Discord in the #AMIGApril channel’s challenge thread. All achievements are worth 1 point but for hi-scores the best score earns you 3 points, 2nd best score earns you 2 points and the 3rd best score earns you 1 point. Obviously trainers, cheats and save states aren’t allowed for completing any of the goals – for practice it’s fine (since we can’t monitor that anyways). Using save states in place of in-game saves when appropriate is accepted. Current leaderboard here.
