attn: Old-School Gamers

Posted in Uncategorized by deek on July 31, 2008

Retro video games, especially 8bit/16bit console RPGs, are something of a hobby for me… Ok, more like an addiction. Underground Gamer is a torrent site dedicated to the preservation and sharing of classic gaming and game-related media. Games for DOS/Windows/Mac/Linux, full ROM sets for Nintendo/Sega, Playstation ISOs, videos, manuals, and plenty more… If you’re interested in becoming a member, you can get more info in the comments.

    As an elite member of Underground-Gamer.com, I get a handful of invites every week or so. If you are interested in an invite, all I ask is that you agree to actively use the site, and are familiar with how to keep a good ratio (port forwarding, creating torrents, etc). If you are just going to sign-up to “check it out” or basically just look for one specific game, I’d rather save it for somebody else. If you have any questions or comments pertaining to Underground Gamer, please leave me a comment. If you agree to these terms, leave your e-mail, or give me a shout at deekmedia[at]gmail.com and I’ll hook you up with an invite.

    from the UG wiki: “Underground Gamer is a torrent site dedicated to the preservation and sharing of classic gaming and game-related media. We’re purely focused on retro gaming from 1970’s DOS games right up to the death of the Dreamcast around 2001 – we don’t accept new games from any of the current or next generation consoles! The primary thing which makes UG unique is that we are a closed community. This means that you’ll find high quality, well-tested uploads that are almost guaranteed to be fully seeded. Our game torrents can be pretty much divided into three camps: CD Images of classic games from the 32 and early 128 bit systems, individual and full sets of ROMs for all cart-based platforms up to and including the N64, and PC/DOS rips and CD Images from 8 years ago or older. We also encourage torrents with other game-related media, such as Original Sound Tracks (OSTs) and other Video Game Media (VGM), including magazines and game-inspired video. If it is related to Classic and Retro gaming, we’ll have it; and if we don’t have it – we want it!”
