Hi there! I'm Ryan, and I'm a retro gamer. I'm a programmer by trade, specializing in web and mobile apps, but one of my biggest passions is gaming, and I love playing around with old game prototypes and fan translations of games that never saw release (in the US, at least). Part of the purpose of this site is to allow me to share that passion with you, by allowing you to play these games on their original hardware as intended, for the ultimate retro revival experience!
When I'm not programming or working on reproductions, I also like to play games (imagine that), and I stream most of my gameplay on Twitch. I actually have two separate channels:
Retro Gamer Ryan - For retro stuff.
Ryan Plays - For... less retro stuff, though I'll play pretty much anything here..
I'm also an avid speedrun fan, though I don't run anything myself, and I like to support GDQs and other marathons when I can with prize submissions.
