Conquering the classic games market by flipping the business model on its head
== Retro Re-invented ===== How we started ===In 1992, Digital Eclipse pioneered the technique required to bring prolific arcade games to home computers and game consoles. This process (known as emulation) enabled the very first arcade-perfect releases of Joust, Robotron, Defender for Apple’s Macintosh. Digital Eclipse invented game emulation as it is known today, and launched the “classic game collection” genre.Today, the Digital Eclipse brand remains a market leader in the category in sales, critical reception and innovation. Our remasters, reimaginings, and reinventions have made us the most successful developer in the space, with multiple titles selling in a surplus of a million units each. If it’s retro, we made it.=== Partners ===We have a long history of developing games and partnering on creative and technical initiatives with the following companies:=== CORE BUSINESS: Re–Mastered ===Our claim to fame is our meticulously curated classic game collections. We don’t just simply emulate games on new platforms, we remaster the games, often modernizing them with new controls and improving the graphics and experience while subscribing to the concept of “artistic intent.” We produce a treasure trove of bonus materials, from design documentation to concept art, and produce feature length documentaries about the games and their creators. We’ve become the de facto commercial archaeologists of the videogame industry. While the games are the attraction, the bonus materials are quickly becoming the main event.=== How We Do It ====== Recent Works ====== Why others invested ===Carlos SotoACTIVE INVESTORI have all of their products.
