Emulated Games (DEC PDP-1)

The DEC PDP-1, a small mainframe computer for real-time applications introduced in 1959 by the Digital Equipment Corporation, was one of the first commercially available machines to come with a visual display. In 1961, one of the first production models was donated by DEC to M.I.T., which became the first digital computer ever to run a video game. A fully restored PDP-1 is on display at the Computer History Museum in Mountain View, California (USA).

Some games of my own. These games started once, in 1996, as one of the first arcade games using only generic browser technologies (first available with with Netscape 3.0) and a few even enjoyed some public recognition – e.g., the first version of “JavaScript-Invasion” could be found at USA Today’s Marketplace. Games have been updated continously over the following years to reflect the respective state of the art.
