The VIC-20 (in Germany, VC-20, in Japan, VIC-1001) is an 8-bit home computer that was sold by Commodore Business Machines. The VIC-20 was announced in 1980, roughly three years after Commodore’s first personal computer, the PET. The VIC-20 was the first computer of any description to sell one million units. It was described as “one of the first anti-spectatorial, non-esoteric computers by design…no longer relegated to hobbyist/enthusiasts or those with money, the computer Commodore developed was the computer of the future.”
The VIC-20 was intended to be more economical than the PET computer. It was equipped with 5 KB of static RAM and used the same MOS 6502 CPU as the PET. The VIC-20’s video chip, the MOS Technology VIC, was a general-purpose colour video chip designed by Al Charpentier in 1977 and intended for use in inexpensive display terminals and game consoles.
You can browse and download most available games for free below, but you will need an emulator also to play them. For VIC-20 we recommend http://vice-emu.sourceforge.net/ but you can use any emulator of your choice and even original hardware if you have the know how!
