When Commodore 64 (AKA: C64, CBM 64) was launched by Commodore International in 1982, it immediately set industry standards for the 8-bit home computer. Its low cost, excellent graphics effect, high-quality sound and 64 KB of extra physical memory quickly established it as the winner in the home computer war, thus beating out its many competitors such as Atari, Texas Instruments, Sinclair, Apple and IBM.

C64 Forever is a classic, excellent and professional C64 hardware simulator that allows user to perfectly simulate the entire operating environment of C64 on modern computers. It comes with an intuitive player interface, and is supported by a built-in database containing more than 5,000 C64 game entries. It shares the same RetroPlatform family of players, databases, and content management components with Cloanto‘s another very successful product series – Amiga Forever.

As a once fashionable home computer in antique grade, Commodore 64 shocked the video gaming industry and sparked cultural phenomenons in the computer art field such as computer music and demoscene. Now, with help of C64 Forever, we can not only experience the operating system of Commodore 64 computer, but also play many classic C64 games at that time.
