Fifty years ago, a young entrepreneur named Alan Sugar founded Amstrad, a company that rose to the top thanks to the value of its products. Initially focused on everything related to high fidelity, they touched the sky with their entry into the world of computing and the creation, in 1984, of the Amstrad CPC464, an 8-bit microcomputer that was a revolution thanks to its graphics modes, its robustness and its professional appearance, but above all, thanks to the quantity and quality of the games that were published on it.
Atila Merino, founder and president of the Amstrad Eterno association, brings us the history of Alan Sugar's company from its beginnings to the present, reviewing everything related to it, from the mini-systems to the wide variety of computers they manufactured, without forgetting a great selection of video games and companies, both national and foreign.
The homebrew news is another of the outstanding sections, since it is the one that, after all, keeps the flame of Amstrad alive, fifty years later. And all this with the design, desktop publishing and comments by Javier Cubedo, graphic designer, former component of Dinamic and one of the most outstanding graphic designers of the Golden Age of Spanish software.
