The file archive at Demu.org had finally moved to the Classic PC Games at archive.org. It is now possible to browse games by various criteria, including year of release and developer/publisher, but thumbnail view is no longer available.

The original Demu.org website is now primarily focused on game research.

Retrospec
Quote:
Retrospec are a team of coders, graphics artists and computer musicians who have gathered together (and are grooving in a cave with a Pict? - Ed.) to bring you the best remakes of old 8 bit games and new original games with a decidedly retro feel that we can. We meet here in the clubhouse - a remarkable building with rooms on at least 5 planets (and a cosmic toilet, baby!)
