Thank you for 26 years!


Original Founder
Good evening, mortals. 26 years ago on November 9th, 1996, I asked: what if all emulators, utilities, and news about them were all in one place? Zophar's Domain was born and flourished for years and is still here to this day thanks to all of you! I'd like to thank the following people for helping to make this site an amazing place to come for emulators, utilities, translations and chiptunes:

- The oiriginal 11.9.96 team: evilhomer, infe
- The late 90s crew: alamone, Stick_Fig, Nitro, Lycia, Xip, [NOAM], _bnu, BDLou, Raejae, Taichou and CD
- The current team: Azul Fria, martini, Montie2k and dlevere.
- And of course, the current administrator and owner Edman - hope all is well, let's catch up some time soon!

So proud of what we did back then and what we're going to do in the future. I'd like to leave you all with an excerpt (edited for brevity) from a 1997 throwback piece that I wrote at age 16. Maybe you remember it. Enjoy. ;)

"...I have an epiphany...The Emulation Dream.

This is my dream, hear me out and you shall enter my world...

I see a world where people, young and old alike, relive days gone by when video games first entered my world.

Where people work together to help each other realize this dream, the dream I have and others share, where the emulation world and its Nostalgic value exsists for one reason: 'Fun'.

In the days we are in, where Technology is advanced, and we have games that 5 years ago would have required more money than anyone could afford, and yet we ask ourselves, have we REALLY advanced?

Mine is a world where we all strive to bring back those days...

This is the Emulation Dream. It is about that one single solitary thing that many modern games lack.


It will go on, it will continue to grow, this isn't my world anymore, this is OUR world.

And may it always remain as such.

Emulation Forever."
