    Any benefits to a Raspberry with amibian over just setting up WinUAE on your PC?

    Never used WinUAE on PC (I've used the Amiga Forever distro on my PC), but I don't think there would be any benefits. For my setup/living habits it just works having RPI in my living room hooked up to a TV set. I also like having a dedicated Amiga setup with amibian on a dedicated SD card (I also have another SD card with retropie for SNES/Megadrive/NeoGeo/PSX/basic Amiga games emulation/Kodi).

    I had one of these in my collection before, a PC-10, but it was dead due to faulty powersupply that i never got to fix, had i fixed it i would prob have kept it as a Retrogaming PC, like the 486 i have now.

    I'm the creator of Realms of Quest V for the VIC-20. My motivation is a lot of the things that you all mention. I suppose that I could make my games for the PC and have a bigger audience, but I already how the VIC-20 works almost inside and out. I will say this in defense of retrogame programming: the old systems limitations provide a structure to work with. And the games that I make are playable on modern systems with emulation. And since the ESC key on the PC keyboard maps to the RUN/STOP key in the Commodore emulator, I made certain to allow players to use that key to exit menus, etc.

    And I really look forward to holding a physical copy of my game in my hands:

    As well as looking at the cloth map of the game world:

    And just the other day, my previous publisher (Pystrronik) re-released one of my old games, Theater of War:

    ... I just got it in the mail a few days ago and it's beautiful.
