— 3:59 PM on July 6, 2009

Upgrading to Windows 7 doesn't have to mean turning your back on old Amiga games. Cloanto has released a new version of its Amiga Forever emulator, which purportedly complies with "'Compatible with Windows 7' requirements."

Here are some of the other additions Cloanto has made in Amiga Forever 2009, according to the official press release:

New features include seamless, one-click integration of the AmiKit and AmigaSYS add-ons and new system ROMs (e.g. the 0.7 Kickstart required to run the software used by Andy Warhol's famous 1985 Launch of Amiga demo). The Plus Edition includes more than 100 games and a selection from the most beautiful demoscene productions ever created. Tens of thousands of games, as well as other software ranging from the oldest to the latest Amiga releases are only a mouse click apart, and can run on powerful PCs and inexpensive netbooks alike.

The firm offers three editions of the emulator priced at $9.95, $29.95, and $49.95. The most expensive edition includes more than 100 Amiga games, more than 100 Amiga demos, two DVDs filled with "historical items" and videos, and more. You can study a more detailed run-down of features here.
