16-bit Memories by Intercepto 16-bit Memories by Intercepto
Childhood, Christmas time, friends, family, joy, happiness ... and, a new toy on my desk. Toy that will define my life, responsible for such a beautiful experiences from my childhood. Kids imaginary world, lost over time, a glimpse of it left in my head, a glimpse of priceless memory.
But, it wouldn't be such a great experience if it wasn't for my friends... do you guys remember how we spent hours playing games, competing and exploring these new digital frontiers?

I must admit I had Atari ST not Amiga ;), but my friend had Amiga and it had way better graphics and sound than my ST. So that's the reason why I decided to model Amiga for this illustration, out of respect. :)

Commodore 64 was my first computer back in '91 in my very early years 4-6. Test Driver, Impossible Mission, Hot Wheels, Space Taxi. B.C. II Grogs Revenge, and a few others that have fallen to obscurity in my memory. #floppydiscsofloppy lol

Go to your brother
Kill him with your gun
Leave him lying in his uniform
Dying in the sun
W-W-W-Wa-War!
Peeeeeeewwwwuooooooo
War

Oh the memories! The console war started here folks! Or, computer War even. I remember having this on my Amiga and later got it on my 486Dx and surprisingly the PC didn't have the song.

Love the C64 box with the cassette drive and old 1541 in the background. Nice touch. It really was an amazing thing back then to upgrade from a c64/128 to an Amiga. Beautiful render.
