Commodore: The Final Years - Last call for Kickstarter trilogy



There's only a few days left to back the final part of Brian Bagnall's trilogy of books covering the rise and fall of Commodore with Commodore: The Final years. CBM was riding high with the success of the Amiga yet in just a few years they went from top dog to bankrupt, and this book aims to chart the events that brought the company down.


Brian's previous books covered the rise in Commodore: A Company on the Edge in 2010 and Commodore: The Amiga Years which shipped at the end of last year after smashing its funding target. Indeed, The Final Years is steaming through the stretch goals with CA$73K already raised.

The book will be covering the projects that were in development and just released just prior to the death of the company, with a particular focus on the the "holy grail" of commodore collectors, the C65 - a true update to the C64 that was to embellish it with near Amiga quality graphics in the all new VIC-III chip and built in disk drive.

Of course it was the lack of progress with an advanced graphics chipset while the ubiquity of PC's (and DOOM, then Quake) and bad management that ultimately tanked the company, and Brian will be covering it all with interviews and unearthed media from the people involved back in the day.

So it's your last chance to get in on the ground floor and get some sweet sweet stretch goal perks and swag.
