Welcome to The Game Engine! To get started head to our game directory. This site hosts a wide variety of information valuable to all gamers especially those that have spent tireless hours struggling to coerce buggy or outdated games to run.

Help us help you!

Our goal is to provide a user friendly resource focused on getting these old games working modern operating systems. This is a very large and complex goal even for the few games that we support and as such we need your help! Feel free to ask questions via the submit a question form, and comment on your experiences/issues on relevant posts whenever possible so we can improve our resources.
