About 6502 Workshop

6502 Workshop, LLC is a group of gamers making retro RPGs for gamers, including the smash hit Nox Archaist, an 8-bit sword and sorcery adventure for the Apple II and modern computers.

Do you want to help make it possible for 6502 Workshop to release more games and related products? Are you willing to contribute above and beyond game purchases? If so, please consider supporting our Patreon! We'd really appreciate it!

From Mark Lemmert, 6502 Workshop co-founder:
My day job as a freelance consultant lets me adjust how much I'm working. In other words, the more income I have from retro game development, the more time I can shift towards those efforts. Your support will have a direct impact on the time available for work on Nox Archaist expansion packs and sequels.
