Herpy.nu is now closed and archived - will be replaced by something new and better.

Herpy has had a good 13 year run and will never be forgotten for those of us who experienced it. Sadly the site is today unappealing and is no longer fit for the audience of 2018. The gallery will remain operational until further notice. You can follow me on Twitter for further developments. We also have a Discord server which has become the heart of the community. If you wish to join it, send me a PM over Twitter.

Kind regards,

Back in my days we didn't had any MIDI cards, so if we wanted to listen to the in-game music we had to use printers...

Don't kill the edge and become like the rest.
Don't lose the faith that made you who you are
Don't kill the edge that manifests inside
This world is mine; it's where my thoughts collide...

I love that stuff so much... also the floppy drive versions of the same thing.
Especially when you can get it to harmonise.
People are like dragons. They can be dangerous, but they can be friendly. But whatever you are, take flight into the blue abyss of endless possibility!

I know this might be an absolutely bizarre thing to miss, but I miss when all video games came with instruction booklets, and those booklets were around 20-50 pages big. They used to give so much info on the backstory of the game world and character bios. I quite enjoyed reading them.

I also miss old Windows '95 Screensavers. I remember watching the maze one for hours completely mesmerized, wanting to constantly watch who would win, "you" or the rat. :lol:

Funny I was thinking that recently, about the manuals, I was watching a guy on youtube playing an emulation of one of the old PS1 games. And being completely confused by the opening movie. I was thinking 'dahm you idiot, you need to read the manual!'. Most of the back story in them was due to the companies not having time money or spare disk space to add the long winded story lines. Some smaller company games didn't even have an opening sequence!
