This game is no longer worked on, it's final update has been published.


(One of my very first projects developed in Unity, c#!)
Feel as if you're using a Windows XP computer with this realistic simulator! This game is intended as a joke, it is in no way an emulation of an actual operating OS.

This will be the last and final update for Windows XP Simulator. Before we part ways, I would like to say a few words.

From the very first update in 2017, to the final one, today, in 2021. You have all been a part of this journey, part of the unexpected growth of WXPS.
