This project has been in the works for a while now but it’s only just now kinda reached a good point that I would feel comfortable recommending it to others.
Since Adobe ended support for Flash in 2020, not a lot of people have missed it. However, a lot of Gen Z/Millennials grew up with Flash games as part of their childhood or have a fair bit of nostalgia around certain animations or videos. Newgrounds, StickPage, Armor Games, Kongregate, and probably many more Flash portals have been rendered virtually useless, and hardly anyone plays browser games regularly anymore.
If you ever get that itch of nostalgia or feel like watching some of the old classics that once made the internet great, check out BlueMaxima’s Flashpoint! It’s a great project that aims to restore and archive great Flash content.
You do not need Flash Player to use it. That’s the whole point. You download the lightweight .exe from here, and simply look through a nice game list with a simple “PLAY” launch option.
Once you launch it, you’ll be greeted with this nice user interface:
It’s a very respectable project and I highly commend them on their technological work and exhaustive manual labor of collecting all of these files/external resources and even custom-hacking some of the games to make them run as originally intended.
I highly recommend you check it out if you have time.
Oh, also, they archived Concussion. 😋
