Believe it or not, this is the 3rd Christmas we celebrate at GamesNostalgia!

We have been spreading the love for retro games for more than two years and a half now. In 2015, we were proclaiming almost 20 thousand visitors per month; now this number is six times higher: last month we got 131 thousand visitors. Not bad.

With Alien Breed: Tower Assault, released today, we reached the mark of 700 games online. As always, we test and configure all titles, but remember these games are old games; particularly if they don't run under an emulator, there are so many things that can go wrong, especially with new OSes such as Windows 10 or Mac OS High Sierra. We do what we can.

We have big plans for 2018, but for now, if you need some games to play for Xmas, why don't you try Xmas Lemmings or Skyroads: Xmas Special?

Said that, a very Merry Xmas and a Happy New Year from all of us at GamesNostalgia!

Oh, by the way, the beautiful pixel art you can see above, is the work of an amazing artist called Octavi Navarro. You can see the full picture (and many others) on his personal website.

I love this website. Playing this decades old classics doesn't just indulge a reminiscent feeling but really allows you to appreciate the gaming industry's foundation in computer based home entertainment. Cosmo's Cosmic Adventure has a particularly special place in my heart.
Love the Bio's too! I would love to read a piece on anyone who was part of the team that created Guybrush Threepwood (Or the Monkey Island franchise in general). Just in the off chance you also think that's an amazing idea.
Congrats on 3 years of all of this, and to many more to come.

Thanks Ryan, we are happy you appreciate the site. Stay tuned for more bios, Martin Edmondson will be published soon, but Ron Gilbert could be the next one.
