Another visitor!   Stay a while!   Staaaaaaaaay foreverrrr!!!   :)

Preservation before Deterioration!Welcome to the GameBase64 site, formed by a team of C64 enthusiasts from all over the world who wish to preserve the memory of their beloved 8-bit computer for the generations to come.

We do this by trying to preserve all game software written for the Commodore 64 computer before the deterioration of old 5 disks and common cassette tapes erases them for ever. It is a race against time in order to collect and archive the games themselves, as well as catalogue information on their creators and programmers. So far we have successfully compiled a list of over 15000 entries, complete with screenshots and all information available at hand. For anything we are still missing, we are relying on you, the former Commodore 64 software user, to help us by supplying any bits of new info you might have knowledge of. Any information collected will be freely distributable to all in irregular updates offered for download at this very site.

Our Points/Awards system

By registering in the forum, you'll automatically have joined up with our Points/Awards system. In this system, points will be awarded to you when you do certain things. The more points you get, the better the award you'll receive! We will be keeping a list of the current Top 10 points earners on our homepage too!
