This week, archive.org released a collection of over 2,300 MS-DOS games that can be played right through almost any browser. The release follows The Internet Archive’s moves in recent years to archive old arcade games, as well as historical software from a number of systems. All three run in browser-based emulators – this new batch of releases runs on EM-DOSBOX.
“So, Josh, that’s good and all for the video game fans out there, but why are you telling us about this on Panels?”
Well, unlike those earlier releases, this batch includes a number of games based on American and European comics. From text adventures to minigame collections to platformers, there’s over a dozen different MS-DOS games in this library that are based on comic properties.
