Commodore Amiga CDTV

1991 - 4th generation system

The Commodore Amiga CDTV (Commodore Dynamic Total Vision) was a multimedia device developed by Commodore International and released in 1991. It was essentially an Amiga 500 computer with a CD-ROM drive built in, and it was designed to be a multimedia home entertainment system. The CDTV was capable of playing audio CDs, video CDs, and CD+G (CD+Graphics) discs, and it also had the ability to display pictures and run games. It also had a built-in keyboard and a remote control, making it easy to navigate through the system's menus. The CDTV was not a commercial success and was discontinued by Commodore in 1993. Here are some games that were released for the Commodore Amiga CDTV: "Lemmings" - A puzzle game where players control a group of lemmings, guiding them to safety through various levels. "The Secret of Monkey Island" - A classic point-and-click adventure game developed by Lucasfilm Games. "Dune" - A real-time strategy game based on the science fiction novel of the same name. "Eye of the Beholder" - A first-person RPG developed by Westwood Studios. "Wing Commander" - A space combat simulation game developed by Origin Systems. "Populous" - A god-sim game where players control a tribe of people and guide them to prosperity. "Pirates!" - A swashbuckling adventure game developed by MicroProse. "The Settlers" - A city-building strategy game developed by Blue Byte. "Sim City" - A city-building simulation game developed by Maxis. "Full Motion Video" - A interactive movie game developed by Digital Pictures. Keep in mind that these games were not specifically designed for the CDTV and the CDTV version may have some limitation. Also, the CDTV library of games was relatively small compared to other platforms of the time, the CDTV was not a gaming console, but more of a multimedia platform.
