What can you say about this sequel to From Bedrooms to Billions?

Really a must see to all those like me, lived the best video game era you can be part of, that is the birth of the UK computer and computer games history.

Anthony and Nicola had already hit perfection on the first film who was centered a little bit more on the 8-bit gen UK computer scene, in the likes of the Sir Clive Sinclair's Speccy, Alan Sugar's CPC and Jack Tramiel's C64 and BBC's micro. Although that first movie only scratched the surface of the 16-bits ATARI ST and Amiga, the latter one is on the leading role to this second movie.

These had to be for sure, one of the best "2 hours and a half" of me life, watching this movie brought me so joy and it really makes you feel happy you were there in the first place.

Now you're in the first seat revisiting all those good vibes with pack full of interviews from passionate interviewers to love crazy interviewees. These genius and sometimes ingenious minds who pursuit a dream with all its ups and downs, but that ultimately lead to the creation of the Amiga 1000.

On top of all that, we're flooded with great footage of that time, who doesn't love to watch those old Amiga commercials and also great music, screenshots and game play of some of your favorite games.

To wrap it up!

AWESOME once again. And I can't wait for the Playstation one, because the Caulfield stamp stands for best quality.

Cheers,

Pedro Gonçalves
