Have you ever wanted to have all of Retro Gaming content in one place, where it is easy to get what you need to build your own collections, or use the ones we have already built for you? Get not only all ROMs you can, but also artwork (Screenshots, box art, flyers, adverts), videos (previews, reviews, TV shows, documentaries and commercials) and even publications (books, magazines, instruction manuals)?
If you tried to build your own custom setup, you know how hard it is. Or if you are just a Retro lover that enjoys the history, the artwork and tons of information about games and systems, you know how hard it is to go after all that.
What if there was one place where you could get it all?
This place is here! Welcome to the RetroGames Cloud!
What is the RetroGames Cloud?
The RetroGames Cloud is a retro gaming and computing preservation initiative whose objective is to put together in only one place everything you’ve ever wanted. We’ve been working for over 20 years to gather all this content to share it with you.
What’s in there?
We know how important it is to preserve the history of computer, console and handheld gaming, and preserve all that does not mean to have all the ROMs for the system so people can play them only. We believe in preserving EVERYTHING: Box art, advertisements, posters, magazines, instruction manuals, labels, commercials… the history of the whole thing!
To have all that is not an easy task. New stuff show up every day. New games, newly scanned materials, better quality videos…
And that’s exactly what we are offering here. The entire history! You’ll be able to not only get our ready to play game packs for the various front-ends available (RetroPie, RetroBat, LaunchBox, Lakka, Batocera…), but also all that content so you can make your own collections, or just enjoy looking at.
But that’s not all. New content is added daily. Right now there is nearly 10TB of data in there, there’s still about another 20TB to go. We upload daily, and whenever there’s a revision on a game pack, we’ll upload it!
How Can I Access it?
You can sign-up for it right now above, and we will send you your access to start downloading immediately. You can download content through the browser, or you can use FTP (recommended if you are outside the United States).
I am a member now! What’s next?
We are setting up a forum where all users of the cloud will be able to interact, exchange ideas and communicate with us in real time, with requests, suggestions, and even to submit and share content with all the other users.
