When it first began, the Internet Archive collected millions of webpages in an effort to create an historical map charting the growth of the World Wide Web. More recently, they’re just as well known for their massive digitization projects that provide in-browser access to games and software previously released for consoles such as the Atari 2600, the Odyssey 2, and the Sega Genesis, as well as computer platforms like MS-DOS and Windows 3.1.
But today, the Internet Archive may have outdone itself with the launch of the Apple Macintosh Software Library.
Players can transport themselves back to the 80s with the Apple Macintosh Software Library, and many of us will be able to relive our school days with the system’s monochromatic GUI. The Apple Macintosh Software Library currently offers dozens of options for in-browser including fan favorites such as Lode Runner, Brickles, and Dark Castle.
If you’re interested in learning more about this software collection, Jason Scott of the Internet Archive has published a nice overview at the Internet Archive Blog.
