This website was founded in January 1999 and since then has provided an archive of free (shareware, freeware, etc) games for the DOS platform. Nowadays DOSBox provides an easy way to play these games on modern computers.
DOSGames.com has been online for over 20 years! To put this into context, this site was founded seven years before Twitter, six years before YouTube, five years before Facebook, and only a couple of months after Google incorporated!
The purpose for this website is to provide a source to download free (shareware, freeware, public domain, etc) and legal (no warez or abandonware) DOS games. There are many sites that provide games, but most include non-DOS games or also include illegally distributed files.
The website was founded by me, Darren Hewer. I originally started the website because back then, DOS games were becoming increasingly difficult to find. There were few other websites focused solely on DOS games. So I started one, since I loved playing the games that I grew up playing. Back in those days, there was no DOSBox, so sometimes even getting the games running was a chore involving carefully tweaking settings, add-on utilities like VDMSound, or even BOOT DISKS (gasps!). (Nowadays unless you want to build your own dedicated DOS PC, you can use our DOSBOX Guide to run most DOS software on your modern computer.)
