kindred is a multi-system video game emulator for Windows. A work-in-progress for more than a decade, the software utilises a number of proprietary technologies to accurately emulate video games systems.

The following systems are somewhat supported:
  • Commodore 64
  • Commodore Amiga
  • Famicom / Nintendo Entertainment System
  • Super Famicom / Super Nintendo Entertainment System
  • Game Boy
  • Game Boy Color
  • Game Boy Advance
  • Nintendo DS
  • Sega Master System
  • Sega Mega Drive

Due to the discrete knowledge of video game hardware some features may be non-existant or disabled due to constant changes in the overall structure of the software.
