What is EmuVR?

Do you remember waking up early Saturday morning, watching some cartoons and playing video games in your messy room?

Remember calling your best buddy over and sharing those moments, taking turns at that hard game or playing together?

Relive that unique ritual:
  • Search through all those games on the shelf, or inside that cardboard box below your bed
  • Grab your favorite game, open the case
  • Turn on your TV
  • Insert the cart into your console
  • Turn it on and grab your controller
  • HAPPINESS!
How about traveling back in time to those good old days?

Bring back those feelings!

Be in that room, grab those games, turn on those consoles and play, all this in Virtual Reality!

EmuVR intents to help not only the preservation of games, but also the environment and feelings of that time.

Support EmuVR Development!


EmuVR is a labor of love, and will always be FREE!
If you want to support us and help development, or just want to say thanks, any amount can be very helpful to let us improve on EmuVR, so thank you!

You can contribute towards the creation of cool environments, like a kid's bedroom or a video game museum, creation of game console and arcade models, online features, modding support, and even help us get hold of better hardware for development, such as HMDs with hand controllers, to properly support them! If you want to help solely because of the emulation part, you should support the hardworking creators of Retroarch and Libretro cores instead (which are also free), they helped making this possible!
