Atari 50:
The Anniversary Celebration

In 1972, Atari made history and launched an industry. Over 100 games, new interviews, and never-before-seen artifacts come together in a definitive interactive experience that only Digital Eclipse could provide.


Our Mission

Classic video games deserve better. At Digital Eclipse, we treat them with the same care and respect given to other artistic mediums.

In its original incarnation in 1994, Digital Eclipse pioneered accurate video game re-releases, emulating vintage arcade games well before “emulation” was a household word. 25 years later, we’ve been reborn as a new kind of studio—one dedicated to not only restoring gaming’s heritage, but to preserving it and keeping it alive and available for future generations.


The Eclipse Engine

Digitize a movie once, and it’s watchable forever, no matter how technology evolves. Scan a book, and it can be reprinted infinitely. But if you port a video game, it’s only playable on that one platform. Getting it running anywhere else requires a significant amount of work and investment. 

At Digital Eclipse, this problem is a thing of the past. With the Eclipse Engine, the porting is done by the engine itself, not the games. Once a game is converted to our Eclipse format, it will run anywhere Eclipse does. And since we keep it updated, wherever we go, the games can easily follow.


The Eclipse Engine: Technology designed for preserving games for future generations.

The Digital Eclipse Philosophy


Great games do not need a new coat of paint to be appealing. While we often enhance classic games with our signature quality-of-life features like Watch Mode, Save/Load, and Rewind, they can also be played just as they were the day they were released.


Games are more than just playable code. They are snapshots of a certain time, a certain place. We work closely with our partners to present original concept art, packaging, advertisements, and development history whenever it’s available. And when it’s not... we find it.


Tube TVs and antiquated video signals might be out of date today, but we know that classic game artwork was made to leverage their strengths and get around their limitations. Where possible, Digital Eclipse collections offer an option to simulate the technology of their time.


Porting a game once, for one platform generation, isn’t preservation. Our Eclipse Engine technology is constantly being updated for new platforms as they emerge. That means that after we’ve converted a game once, keeping it available is easy and inexpensive.

Past Works


The year 2018 marked the 40th anniversary of pioneering Japanese game publisher SNK.

The legendary weapons-based fighting game series comes together in this comprehensive package. Seven games, including the previously-unreleased SAMURAI SHODOWN V PERFECT, each with online play. A museum with over 2,000 pieces of art. And a music player with over 200 tracks. It's the ultimate fight!


Mega Man Legacy Collection is a celebration of the early history of Capcom’s legendary Blue Bomber. Featuring faithful reproductions of the series’ 8-bit origins, the Legacy Collection is a love letter to the series' longtime fans; to newcomers, it's the perfect introduction to what made Mega Man such a popular and iconic video game character.
