Vintage computing, old video games

After a couple repairs and lots of futzing with cables… life!
This is the SHARP x68000, a vintage computer from Japan.

If the name sounds familiar- it runs on a Motorola 68000 processor. This vintage computer was never sold outside of Japan due to very strict export regulations in the 1980s which included this system. Inside Japan, there were many notable video game franchises that debuted and/or gained prominence on this platform

It has an OS very much like DOS.

Sadly my Lagoon system disk needs to be replaced, but this is it booting up “Xak: The Art of Visual Stage”.
