The mission and purpose of this website, Emugen.net; has always been clear – to archive and preserve classic, retro and cult videogames and videogaming culture. Without such a service, many of the titles which are readily available on this service, would no longer be remembered – let alone playable.
Aswell as retro, Emugen.net and it’s community strive to keep innovation possible; offering makers of ‘homebrew’ (independent publishers) games, tools and programs a place to distribute their creative works.
Emugen.net and Emugen community are aware there are legal implications in the attempt to provide such a service and wish to fully abide by the law.
Emugen.net has a strict policy where content has to meet such criteria as:
- No direct hosting of downloadable content
- No links to titles of systems in current production, or ceased production for at least 3 generations
- No links to titles of current active copyrighted works; maintain a collection of titles where the publishers and/or developers have ceased trading, collapsed, and/or relinquished copyrights
- No links to titles of current active trademarked brands (See list below)
By meeting the above criteria, there is absolutely no way any damages or losses could incur to any publishers, individuals or companies involved with the original creation and distribution of the content as the content is no longer in production, supported, available for purchase, or compatible with any modern platform(s) on sale and in production
