    Hi,

    I would love to replay an old adventure game that I never got the chance to finish: Timelapse: Ancient Civilisations (http://www.adventureclassicgaming.com/index.php/site/reviews/116/)

    I can still buy it online, but I do not know how I would be able to run it, as it was developed for W95. Does anyone know if it is possible to run it with an emulator? If so, how?

    Thanks.

    Caezar

    If you happen to have an old Windows license (95/98/2000/XP), you could use VirtualBox to try and install the game in a VM.

    If you have Linux or OS X, you can try running the game under Wine.

    Thanks. I no longer have a copy of Windows, so I'll try WINE. I had not thought about this option.
