What is Fanticon?

Fanticon is a fantasy 6502 based virtual machine.

It has a custom video card which provides multiple graphics modes including Text, Tile, and Bitmap modes. For sound, it uses the SAA1099 sound device which provides for 6 voices, as well as a noise generator and fully independent stereo sound.

Included with the Console is a 6502, as well as a C based runtime library, and accompanying documentation. It also includes a full specification of the internal hardware.

At Fanticon's core is a 100% cycle accurate 6502 microprocessor that has been tested against Visual6502. Unlike other popular fantasy console (such as PICO-8), this console's limitations are not arbitrary, but are instead the real limitations of the 6502 itself.
