About


Hello, my name is Richard Löwenstein and I am creating modern quality games, magazines and editorial features for retro lovers interested in classic gaming.

By supporting me you help to produce new games for classic hardware platforms | new issues of Amiga Joker magazine | reports and reviews covering retro related topics

I am a Commodore kid. Grew up with Commodore C64 and Commodore Amiga, and worked with both machines in the 80s and 90s. You might have played my C64-conversion of "Persian Gulf Inferno" or my C64-original game  "Twinky goes hiking". Maybe you read the Worlds best Amiga gaming magazine ever in the 90s, the Amiga Joker. I had the editorial lead. Fun times. 

I want to keep the spirit alive. I feel honored if you support me in doing that!

THE AUTHOR – About me



My name is Richard Löwenstein. You might know me as former editor of the original Amiga Joker magazine in the 90s and the creator of the recent 2017 and 2019 issues of Amiga Joker. You might have played one of my former games: "Twinky goes hiking", "Persian Gulf Inferno", "Anno Domini" (all of which I developed), "Wendetta 2175" (which I produced) or even "Reshoot" and "RESHOOT R" – my brand new 2016 and 2019 shoot-em-up for the Commodore Amiga platform and its amazingly big and active fanbase. If you haven´t played "Reshoot" or "RESHOOT R", order them right here.  


Thank you to all Patreons. This game is for you. Amiga forever!
