Play roguelikes in retro style with cool-retro-term

cool-retro-term is a terminal emulator which mimics the look and feel of the old cathode tube screens.

I've been playing roguelikes in this. It gives them a nice extra retro feel.



A static image doesn't quite do it justice, since you won't see all the animated effects like the scanlines and burn in.

Looks like fun.
Your image is a wide screen tube monitor :)


My primary monitor was a tube until 2007, when it broke.

That glow effect is something my eyes don't like. I do have weirdly sensitive eyes, for example I can't use dark themes in editors.
