It is that time of the year again, and another bumper update which has been building up.  The big difference this year was the lack of a backlog, so all the materials here have been the result of further digging and disk preservations.  We hope you enjoy it all, and there will be more in 2014 for sure!  Merry Christmas!

3 previously unseen full games recovered

Thanks to Cory Kin and the loan of his work disks, we have found a number of full games which are previously unseen

Flok, Jet CombatMaster Blast

CDU Games Disk 6 recovered (Including 3 unseen games)

Thanks to Richard Smedley, CDU Games Disk 6 has been fully recovered and preserved – preserving 3 more previously unseen full games:  Outbreak, Mirror Image and Mystery Man

12 previously unseen previews recovered

Mostly thanks to Cory Kin’s work disk loan, a large amount of previously lost game previews (a lot of Cory’s own work) have been salvaged and preserved:

Spore 2 found?

It’s been in the digital archives for a while, but has remains of Spore 2 been under our noses all this time?  Or at least an earlier build.  Take a look at Cybowormz and then compare to Mutant Zone.

Odd Melbourne House title surfaces in loading screen form

A loading screen by Lizard has been recovered showing a game called Questerious – we find that it was a Melbourne House title.  Was it a precursor for Thone of Fire?

Frank Gasking work disk collection added

A digitisation project which has been in progress for several years on and off now.  The webmaster of GTW64 has compiled together all their work disks, tapes and gone through the lot – compiling together anything unfinished, incomplete pictures, games, demos into individual folders.  More details on the page here with download links:
