PSA: Due to real life commitments taking more and more of our time, the Fightcade team has decided to put Fightcade 2 development on hold. This means that while the server will be kept on for the time being, there won't be new updates. If this changes in the future we'll let you know. Many thanks to our wonderful Discord mods and all of you for your support!

Hi! We are a team of people passionate about retro gaming working on Fightcade, the best online retro gaming multi player platform.

Fightcade is a program that provides game lobbies and matchmaking capabilities for emulators that support netplay. Despite its name it's not only about fighting games, though! It supports any game that the emulators support. It's like an online amusement arcade where you can play with or against anyone in the world, in any of your favorite retro games!

Fightcade has been providing users with online matchmaking since 2014 and is the result of thousands of man-hours of work. We're now rolling a new version and you now have the possibility to support us in our endeavour and at the same time get something in return.

Fightcade consists of 4 differentiated projects:
  • Fightcade Backend code, built from scratch using nodejs
  • Fightcade Frontend code, built from scratch using VueJS + Webpack
  • Fightcade Client, built using a mix of Electron and Python
  • Fightcade Emulators, built using FB Alpha, Snes9X and GGPO library

Any money raised by our Patreon page goes only towards the first two projects, Backend and Frontend, and so will be used to cover server and hosting expenses.

Playing on Fightcade has always been free and will always continue to be free. The perks that we offer in our different tiers are not disruptive to Fightcade's enjoyment and are merely convenient extras. Any beta features initially available for patrons only will eventually reach the general public.
