April 19, 2017 Go retro with these old-school Mac games

And feel sad for previous generations of Mac owners.

When it comes to strolling down memory lane, games are often some of the saddest ways to experience the past. In an industry that’s constantly evolving and improving graphics and gameplay, the addictive titles of older models find it difficult to showcase their appeal.

All of which is a fairly depressing introduction to a fairly cool site: Software Library – Macintosh. *thunder crash*

Head over there and check out all the black-and-white glory of titles like Wizardry – Proving Grounds of the Mad and Social Climber. Oh, and you totally have to check out Rogue. Seriously, it’s the greatest. Don’t believe me? Look at this screenshot:

Yeahhhhh, that’s the stuff.

After you’ve finished exploring the library of games, go and hug two people: a game designer working today, and someone who owned a Mac in 1985.
