8-bit Memoirs is an eBook containing a collection of stories I remember from my childhood, about the gaming consoles and computers I experienced back in the 8-bit era in the 80s and 90s.

The systems I experienced were the Philips Videopac G7000, the Amstrad CPC and the Amiga.

8-bit Memoirs contains 60 stories, 15 illustrations, 100 screenshots, 50 videos and 5 hours of background music while reading - all wrapped into a retrostyled diskmag-like GUI to boost the retro-feeling.

VideoLAN VLC (from v3.0.3)*

Note: Some of these software players
require you to change a setting
from "Simple mode" to "Menu mode"
before playing 8-bit Memoirs correctly.

* Kodi and VLC offers limited playback
functionality: There is no mouse-control yet
(for the GUI in 8-bit Memoirs), no
key-number input, and no POPUP MENU
button. In other words; navigating
8-bit Memoirs with these players isn't
nearly as much fun as with PowerDVD.

Also note: Playing 8-bit Memoirs on a PC
also requires Java installed. It is
important that you install the same
bit version of Java that your software
player is: 32bit Java => 32bit VLC.
