About neobrain

Help me preserve the 3DS platform and build Mikage: A universal emulator that runs games and system software alike, with high performance on both PC and Android!

The 3DS had an amazing run, with more than 1300 games released to date, many of which coined childhood memories for years after. And with the Home Menu, personalized Miis, technologies like StreetPass, and fun gadgets like AR games and Face Raiders, there is so much more to this platform: I want to go beyond what other emulators do and capture all of these aspects in an awesome emulator. A way to relive the full 3DS experience.

This emulator is in development for both Android and PC. As of 2022, it can run several games at high frame rates, and it supports system-level software like the Home Menu thanks to a smart mix of low-level emulation for accuracy and high-level emulation for performance. I'm steadily improving compatibility and performance, but more importantly I can't wait to get the emulator into your hands: A free and open-source Developer Edition will be released later this year, followed by a fuller-featured and user-oriented release offered for purchase on Steam.

Your funding is a token of support for this undertaking. Where other projects make up non-rewards in exchange for donations, I will always openly share news about Mikage's progress to everyone regardless of their wallet. Your donation is all the more appreciated and motivates me to keep putting my blood, sweat, and tears into this project. Thank you all so much!
