To celebrate the Millenium, Alive mediasoft are holding the worlds biggest Amiga software survey in years. We have always prided ourselves in our ability to track down old games for people through our Classic Search Service as well as stocking a large range of classic titles in our catalogue.

Over the last 10 years, the Amiga has given us thousands of brilliant games (not to mention just as many crap ones!). It can sometimes be difficult for us to choose which games people will want.

To celebrate all the great games, we launching the MILLENIUM SURVEY to find out the greatest Amiga games of all time.

By voting, you can help your favourite games to see the light of day again. On June 1st, Alive mediasoft will announce the survey winners giving you the top ten from each catagory like Best Adventure, Best Beat 'em Up and so on. During the months runnig up to the announcements, Alive mediasoft will put in 110% to obtain the winning games. All winning titles will go on sale from June 1st. Obviously, many of the games will be limited availablilty. So if say, 100 people vote for Sim City 2000, and we can only get 50 copies, we will give those who voted the first opportunity to buy a copy before onening sales to the general public.
