Nope. He has some Windows games out now. They're kind of fun to play,
actually.

Hi all,
 
I thought Jim Kitchen's games were designed for old DOS machines. Any recent
version of Windows XP probably wouldn't run them; just because there's a
command prompt doesn't mean it's a DOS box. I suspect that DOS is gone
forever; Windows XP is not designed to run with a DOS code base as most
previous Windows were. microsoft deleted most traces of DOS deliberately. In
fact, you cannot boot XP in DOS mode unless you do some procedures to make
it happen, none of which I know since I have no need for them.
