Unlikely. There's 31 colours in the image. While I think the Amiga could support up to 32 colours on screen at once, most games had 16 due to being Atari ST ports. (Please correct me if I'm wrong on any of that.)
The art also looks like modern pixel art to me. Which suggest a modern Indie Game.
(This is all assuming you don't know the answer. If you do and was giving a hint... why?)

Is it one of those 2d pixel art indie Dark Soul clones?

It's an hint indeed. ;)
Also, your comment proves Amiga has always been "modern" hehe
Spoiler: ShowHide

The game was released in 1993.
But maybe I should not give hints, I didn't proposed that game after all. ^^

That's Super Cauldron, by Titus Software who also made the Blues Brothers platformer, Titus The Fox and Lamborghini American Challenge which was the Fast & Furious of Amiga racing games!

Such gorgeous pixel art - look at the shadows on the rabbits as they enter the house!

Those shadows don't seem to be followed up with a matching shadow on the ground though.

Super Cauldron?! Next time I'll make sure to add "super" to all my guesses!

That's because the 'camera' is too low down - the shadow would be on the top of the step, we can only see the front of the step.

And Gilbert got it - it's Rodland!

Man those are definitely some beautiful pixels! You can even see the church bell ringing in the distance.  :)

I'm more familiar with the arcade version and the console ports, but this was definitely Rodland.
Considering the huge HUD I think this is either the Amiga port or the Atari ST port right? (Though with those weird limited colour choice I think it's more possibly the ST port.)

I don't have any idea ATM, so this round is available for grab.

That's the Amiga port according to the YT video title! I could have sworn there was a boss that was one of those cute yellow things that gets all massive, but I couldn't find it in the vid...

Could be the compression for being a video capture. Neither the Amiga port nor the ST port look as bad in reality:

Even the ST version is quite colourful. I think the most noticeable difference between the two is the amount of shading in the HUD.

Hmm, yeah, the vid is a little darker and less sharp - they could have put a pixel-smoothing filter on it, in which case I apologise for introducing such heresy to this thread!

As the round is open, I'll do something weird and make you all guess from a clipping of a review from the same issue of Amiga Power that reviewed Rodland and Super Cauldron. No cheating by looking up issues or doing text searches! I'll give one hint - this is a budget re-release.

Nope. Titus made that after Super Cauldron, and besides it was essentially a re-skin of Crazy Cars 3...
