Thousands Of Old Flash Games Have Been Saved From Retirement

0

Since 2017, Adobe intends to kill off Flash at the end of 2020. Although it was there intention, there was not much action taken on many Flash games that proliferated online throughout the 2000s. However, some games have already acknowledged and moved to preserve this facet of gaming history, but there’s now a new launcher that emulates over 36,000 ye olde games – all free and individually downloadable.

This new launcher is called Flashpoint, which is an impressive initiative to secure the existence of those flash games. As the trailer below demonstrates, using it is as simple as browsing through a (huge) list and double-clicking the game you want to play. This will initiate a download of said game, which will then be emulated by Flashpoint. 

You’ll need the launcher to play the games because the emulator tricks the games into functioning as if they were still hosted online. While normally games are only downloaded as you play them, there’s also the option to download the full 288GB package, so that you can store them as your own archive. Flashpoint can be downloaded here, and a full list of available games is here. Check out the trailer below.
