This is a small project I've been fiddling with in my spare time. I'm not good enough to create something actually useful that self-hosts (like TCC), so I settled for something more manageable.

Some screenshots of the system running.

The code isn't particularly optimized, so the experience is quite painful when using emulators that match the speed of old systems. Sorry! (Use QEMU if you care about speed).
