About Pixelmusement

Looking for info on some Ancient DOS Games? Then you've come to the right place! My name is Kris Asick; I am an indie game designer/programmer and a web show artist who's been operating under the business name "Pixelmusement" since the mid 2000s.

My main project at the moment is a web show entitled "Ancient DOS Games" where I take a look at all those old PC games few people play anymore. Unlike some review shows which simply try to critique these old games or make fun of them, I add my game design talents to the mix and analyze how these games work, how they don't, how to legally obtain them, and how to get them working on modern computers. I originally started the show on Blip in 2010, but migrated to YouTube after Blip shut down.

I also do a series called Shovelware Diggers where Patreon supporters are able to select folders from a massive shovelware archive I have for me to cover on a weekly basis. Given the nature of these archives, you never know what might get dug up! ;D
