Tech: Play 2,400 DOS Games From Your Web Browser

Thanks to the Internet Archive, we can now pay over 2,000 classic DOS game from our web browsers. There are so many great games available to play.

The Internet Archive’s own Jason Scott announced the browser emulator yesterday in a post saying,

I really worked hard to have only fully-functioning programs up, or at least, programs that gave viable, useful feedback. Some of them will still fall over and die, and many of them might be weird to play in a browser window, and of course you can’t really save things off for later, and that will limit things too. But on the whole, you will experience some analogue of the MS-DOS program, in your browser, instantly.

As for the software library itself… many titles will stick around—some will go, or change, or be replaced. This is still brand new territory, and with the addition of the MS-DOS programs so far, this no-plugin in-browser experience is one of a kind in the world. I’m working just as hard as the V2 devs are to make everything work, and it wouldn’t be worth my time if I didn’t have people trying it out, commenting on it, and making use of it.

So please, let’s start 2015 right—in CGA and with a brand new way to use the Internet Archive.

 

Wast no more time and go check out the games Beta version 2 here or original version of the DOS emulator here.
