Relive the 80s With This Amiga Emulator for Chrome

Relive the 80s With This Amiga Emulator for ChromeA nostalgic Google researcher named Christian Stefansen decided to flex his C and C++ coding skills and built a fully functional Commodore Amiga 500 emulator in Google’s Chrome browser. So, go ahead and try the realistic software here; you’re in for some good, geeky fun, with “something like 400,000 lines of code,” or something like that. The Amiga emulator was built with Native Client, a C and C++ sandbox for Chrome, which is one of the browser’s lesser-known features.

Stefansen explains in the site’s FAQ that “on the main page you can boot the Amiga, insert floppy disks, play the games, and generally pretend it’s still the late 80s,” while recommending “some Enigma music or the soundtrack from the movie Top Gun in the background.” So what are you waiting for? Open Chrome and go have a good ol’ retro gaming time!
