There has been a lot of activity in the MS-DOS archive where the company has uploaded more than 2,500 games to the Archive’s software library. These games include Harlan Ellison’s I Must Scream and also Infogrames’ Alone in the dark, to name a couple.
The total number of games in the library has gotten close to 7,000 games and the fans of the retro games can’t be more excited. The main headliners of the whole band are Sim City, original goose game, Mixed-Up Mother Goose and Wolfenstein 3D.
Internet Archive’s own Jason Scott said in a recent blog post that the October 13 upload activity is the biggest one to date – “ranging from tiny recent independent productions to long-forgotten big-name releases from decades ago.”
Other games that have been included in the roster are Millennium Interactive’s Mr. Blobby and Coktel Vision’s Ween: The Prophecy.
The good news for the fans is that they can play all of these amazing titles right in the Internet Archive browser window. Some games might be a bit laggy because of the CD-ROM culture, these games are originally from. But if you have a “multi-hundred-megabyte files into memory”, you will be fine.
