Homebrew games for exactly the type of computers you are likely to have at home!

People write games for hopelessly ancient computers from ancient interplanetary space missions. We're long since living in "the future".

Well you do have it at home, the emulators are right there in the browser.

Understanding the past is the key to the future, my friend.

As someone who was first introduced to computers on a ferrite-core machine (as a child), I completely agree!
