Modern Retro Games
Driven by a passion for classic arcade games, home micros from the 8-bit era, and just about anything related to old computers, Vintage Software Systems Ltd is dedicated to creating modern retro games for vintage home computers, emulators or PC.
No Emulator Required
Our games are provided as stand-alone applications for Windows or Linux PCs - no emulator required - or audio files for loading directly into vintage 8-bit machines. Emulator compatible versions are also included for those with a preferred emulator.
Built-In CRT Display Emulation
The display technology of the time is an essential part of the vintage game aesthetic, but vintage CRT monitors can be expensive and difficult to maintain, so our ready-to-run PC games also include a software CRT emulation complete with phosphor persistence, and adjustable controls - for all the desirable qualities, without the drawbacks.
Hand Coded for Vintage Home Computers
Our modern retro games are hand coded in assembler language, from the ground up - just like the old days, but with the benefit of modern development tools. This allows us to create code which will run directly on vintage machines, or a third-party emulator of choice, or as a ready-to-run PC application - using our own emulation engine and built-in CRT display simulation.
