Welcome to Demu!
Take a step back in time and revisit your favorite DOS and Windows games. The files available consist primarily of demos, freeware, and shareware. New games are added to the collection on a weekly basis.
This website is an alternative way to browse our collection which can also be viewed directly at The Internet Archive Classic PC Games category.
If you are the copyright holder of a classic computer game and would like the full version of your work to appear in the archive please e-mail me at email@example.com. I'm also more than happy to answer questions and fill requests.
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 running Linux, BSD, Solaris or Mac OS X, Wine will run most of the older Windows based software (and DOSBox).
