Play Classic NES Games for Free in Eye-Popping 3D

If you’re looking for a new an novel way to experience the games that have likely shaped your childhood, look no further than one developer’s bold attempt to bring the classics of the NES into the third dimension.

The 3DNES project, available in beta for free in the Firefox browser only, takes NES ROMs and converts them into a 3D viewing experience (with the help of the Unity3D engine) that allows gamers to experience new depth and adjust angles on the fly. The result is something that kind of looks like a diorama you would have built in elementary school — not quite the 3D we know and love today but a more whimsical approach that also has some surprisingly rich positioning and textures.
