Welcome to ASSEMbler: Home of the Obscure.

Out of space! So we moved to these two locations!

SITE 1                                   SITE 2

ASSEMbler is dedicated to the documentation of rare game systems. The goal is to provide a concise source for information that is not widely available anywhere else.To provide the highest quality scans and technical information that is possible. ASSEMbler seeks allies with similar missions at heart. Links to the most hardcore on the internet, as well as links to those who trade and sell the rare and the obscure.

What you will see here are mostly obscure, very rare, and prototype systems. Most will never be emulated or heard of, but all have played an important part. The Pippin, for example, inspired web TV, which inspired netlink for Saturn, and now, the DC modem. The FM towns marty was a PC component based console (Sound familiar???) that was designed as the first game / modem set top box. The Famicom Twin had a floppy disk drive, which inspired the DD64, and the PSX/Xbox Hard Disk. What you see here are the roots of the systems we play today.
