For the first time in history EVER, I am actually sad that I’m not a Mac Gamer. Wait, “Mac Gamer”, is that even a real thing? Can you actually be a gamer, and play on a Mac? Well, much to my chagrin, according to the makers of OpenEMU, YOU CAN.
OpenEmu is an open source multi-system game emulator designed for Mac OS X. It provides a plugin interface to emulate numerous consoles’ hardware, such as the Nintendo Entertainment System, Sega Genesis,Game Boy, and many more. The architecture allows for other developers to add new cores to the base system without the need to account for specific OS X APIs.
OpenEmu first started in 2007 as OpenNestopia, a port of the NES/Famicom emulator Nestopia done by Josh Weinberg. Weinberg and his friend, Ben Devacel, began searching for more developers to port other emulators to OS X, which led to the name change to OpenEmu, to better describe the multi-system emulator.
