Welcome to the official Genecyst page (Thanks to Zophar for allowing me use of his Genecyst shrine as the backbone of this page - all of the version information, screenshots, and layout are taken from the shrine). Genecyst is a Sega Genesis system emulator released in 1997. You won't find a better Genesis emulator around - Genecyst is unmatched in speed and sound.. Oh yeah, I don't have any ROMs for you (they are illegal for you to use unless you have the original cart), so don't bother emailing me, because I'll most likely flog your grandma.

SINCE THE CODER FOR THIS EMULATOR IS NO LONGER WORKING WITH US (BUT STILL CO-OWNER OF THE COMPANY AND AWARE OF EVERYTHING THAT GOES ON), WE CANNOT OFFER TECH SUPPORT FOR THIS PROGRAM. PLEASE DO NOT EMAIL US FOR SUPPORT.
