Any chance of adding a list of all the games you showed at the end of the video in the description ?
I only know a few of them.

Right to repair is fundamental. You own it, you're allowed to fix it.

nice video, I like EGA aesthetics a lot.

I tried running a Monkey Island VGA in EGA with the e parameter: it runs in black and white, while Fate of Atlantis runs in EGA very very slowly, taking 30 seconds to convert a frame, on a P3 450.

Nice video.

Do not read if you don't like attention seeking self-advertisements!

Did you read it anyway? Well, you can find all sorts of stuff I made using various programming languages over here:

I'm sure I ran a demo of Fate of Atlantis on a 386 with EGA back in the day and it was playable. Looked terrible though.

Yes I can do that... actually I already did! 😁
