Miguel Angel Horna started out in the videogames world after feeling curious about how the arcade machines, he used to played with as a child, worked in the inside.

His curiosity led him to the deepest heart of technology and he redirected this knowledge in the creation of emulators of all kind of gaming machines and consoles: from the mythical Model 2 to the MegaDrive or the Dreamcast.
