8-BIT KIDS - Growing up with the C64 Book.

With this project, Koen De Brabander hopes to bring you into his world of growing up with THE Commodore 64. The book will take you back in time and hopefully give you the feel of how an 80s youngster’s life revolved around this machine. Just imagine your teenage bedroom full of friends and this shiny Commodore.


This home computer was an as important part of his life as well as his family and friends. When he first saw one, he knew this was it! Not knowing then though that the world of swapping discs and games was going to become such big business in my environment. Your status was measured by how many discs and the amount of popular games you possessed. The kid with the new and highly desired games was ruler of our world.


Many bubble-gum, A-team gaming cards and even BMX bikes traded hands for these new, not so new and even cracked games. Nothing mattered more than being Knight Rider, the A-team and even ET for a moment.

Holidays were all about gaming, endless hours of battling it out around the Commodore 64.

8-BIT KIDS - Growing Up With The Commodore 64 is the first of hopefully many books by publisher Amicom Books. The main focus of Amicom is top level books all about the 1980’s
