About us

Who are we?

We (retrotastes) are a group of game developers, specializing in retro consoles! To be more specific, the Sega Genesis and Super Nintendo. We are still learning, and one of our developers has yet to learn much, if anything, about the Super Nintendo.

What do we do?

Well, thats complex. The short answer is we make games! The long answer is we have a very specific toolset that we use to code in a language called assembly. But that isn't entirely true. Each microprocessor uses a different assembly version. So it depends on the microprocessor we use.

Okay, that's cool, but isn't it an old console(s), why not make modern games?

Valid point! We could easily(probably easier to be honest) make modern games for modern computers! But for one of our members the Sega was the first console he played, and for the other Nintendo has played a huge part in his life, especially older Nintendo consoles. In other words, nostalgia, but also to preserve information! We plan to have an archive on information / files on this very website for you to access should you want to!

Okay, but why should we care?

If you don't care, then don't. But, before you go, imagine if all the photos you've ever taken just disappear, unless someone saves them. That's kind of what we are doing here! Jusy by us caring a tiny bit, we are helping to preserve information, and save it, for future use, present use, and whatever you can imagine.
