A collection of classic PC games...

Welcome to Demu!

Take a step back in time and revisit your favorite DOS and Windows games. The downloads available on this website consist primarily of demos, freeware, and shareware. New games are added to the collection on a weekly basis.  In addition we also have a video archive on YouTube and are experimenting with an image archive on Picasa.

You can also view these resources directly at The Internet Archive Classic PC Games category.  The Internet Archive has been generous enough to provide hosting for our digital preservation efforts.

If you are the copyright holder of a classic computer program and would like the full version of your work to appear in the archive please e-mail me at I'm also more than happy to answer questions and fill requests.

Compatibility Information
The majority of these games will not run correctly on modern operating systems. For DOS titles you will need to use DOSBox. You can find an easy to follow DOSBox tutorial here.

Most Windows titles will need to be run through Windows Virtual PC under the appropriate version of Windows for full functionality. Some titles may *mostly* work by simply configuring them to use a compatibility mode if you are using a 32 bit version of Windows.

For those of you running Linux, BSD, Solaris or Mac OS X, Wine will run most of the older Windows based software (and DOSBox).
