News – Crowdfunded PC Classic Announced With 30 Pre-Installed DOS Games

Some madman has actually gone and made a PC Classic, attempting to emulate the success of Nintendo’s NES and SNES Classics, as well as Sony’s upcoming PlayStation Classic. We truly are creeping ever closer to our Brass Eye future

It was only a few months ago we were discussing the possible games that would be on a PC Classic Mini. It’s borderline crazy in a world where GOG exists, along with countless emulation methods, but we can’t help but admire the audacity, and the beige-ness, of it all.

The PC Classic is miniature PC that’s set to come loaded with 30 pre-installed DOS games from the 80’s and 90’s, all with joystick-enabled support and the token keyboard + mouse and gamepad support. At the moment, the plan is to include a gamepad with the system. However, they are in talks to offer a mini keyboard and mouse for the device as well.

Unite Technologies is set to open crowdfunding for the PC Classic in late November/early December 2018 with a release planned for early Summer 2019. There’s a target price of $99 for the box with 30 games installed. Unfortunately, none of that 30 games have been revealed just yet, although we’ll hopefully know a whole lot more once the Kickstarter goes live. If Hugo’s House of Horrors isn’t included it may be time to riot.

I think my favourite part of this whole thing is how they so bluntly address the usual critics that come out of the woodwork and scream Raspberry Pi into the infinite cosmos.

It’s all madness of course, but ever-so-slightly endearing. Would you ever be interested in such a device? What games do you think should be installed on it?
