‘From Bedrooms to Billions: The Amiga Years’ VOD Review

Written, Produced and Directed by Anthony Caulfield, Nicola Caulfield

A couple of years ago we reviewed From Bedrooms to Billions, a documentary about the British video game industries early days; telling the story of the developments in computer technology in the UK during the late 70′s early 80′s, which helped inspire a generation of small team enthusiasts, hobbyists, school kids, bedroom coders and entrepreneurs to make and release some truly classic games of the era.

Now comes the follow-up, From Bedrooms to Billions: The Amiga Years, which looks at the next generation of computing, the 16-bit era and in particular the creation of the Commodore Amiga. A subject also covered by the documentary Viva Amiga… Much like that documentary, Caulfield’s film covers the same story – told by the surviving team members themselves – of the struggles to build a brand new computer at a time when, post-Atari crash, video games were a dirty word.
