The Amiga was special for many reasons, but one of those was the exceptional quality of graphics that artists and fans were able to create on the platform.
One site has dedicated itself towards the artistry that emerged from various applications, games and logos over the period. And, unsurprisingly, some of that art still holds up well today.
It’s called the Amiga Graphics Archive, a fairly self-explanatory name for a page that honours the wonderful pixel art created using the platform.
“An uncountable number of graphics were made during this time period, but there are quite a number of noteworthy images that, I believe, shouldn’t gather dust on some harddrive, hidden in some extra level inside a game that never gets played or on a PD collection disk that is almost unknown,” the site’s info page says.
The site is segregated into categories for scenes, logos, artists, game art, applications and miscellaneous art, although you can have a perfectly good time browsing at random. It’s like the Dead End Thrills of Amiga art, in many ways.
