About

I'm neobrain, emulator developer since 2010: Long-term contributor to the popular Wii emulator Dolphin, and one of the people who first pulled off 3DS emulation on PC back in 2015. My current mission is bringing 3DS games to Android via Mikage, a novel project that can already run many games such as Zelda Ocarina of Time and Mario 3D Land.

The 3DS is one of the most popular handheld systems to date - but it's at the end of its product life! My goal is to preserve this system in its entirety - from games, over to applets like the Mii Maker, up to the Home Menu - while enabling high frame rates and a "just works" experience. This is a monumental undertaking, but I'm 100% dedicated to creating the ultimate 3DS emulator. Your support enables me to spend more time on this work so we reach this goal sooner.

Your funding goes towards:
  • Ensuring Mikage stays free of ads
  • Developing cutting-edge emulation features like save states and improved graphics
  • Optimizing emulation speed for a wide range of hardware
  • Regular progress updates, including technical write-ups
  • Server infrastructure: Web hosting, automated testing, ...
  • Artwork & other professional services

In return, you get a chance to support and watch the growth of an emulator from the very early stages. Improvements will be illustrated on the website blog, where I'll also document improving compatibility.

Want to try it out now? Particularly generous supporters will be given access to the latest alpha builds!
