Title: Where to document the undocumented...?
Post by: forgotusername on June 30, 2019, 07:21:19 PM
This will probably turn out as a rather annoying post, but I know there are many preservationists and such here so they might be able to answer this question. Over the years, I've found many strange forms of documentation on video games that aren't listed on any major websites. For example, I just randomly found this webpage:

Many of the games here were unreleased, such as Felix the Cat for PlayStation and Namco Collection for Pocket PC 2002+ (the hell is a Pocket PC?). There are no pictures or videos of these games, let alone other text mentions of them, and we can only imagine what they were. And this is literally on some developer's resume, so I'm not even sure if its something I should be sharing around.

My question is, what can I do to get the word out about these things, without creating an obnoxious post like this on an unrelated forum? I know there's the Undumped Wiki, but they disabled the ability to create an account for some reason. I'm not exactly good at talking to people (especially in this scene with my track record), and most just ignore me. The best I can do is make light of one thing that leads to another; for example, I posted the Korean PC version of Pac-Man World on a wiki page, which led to some spiked interest in Korean PC games. I can't figure out any better way...

I know I'm bumping an old topic that's a year old, but I suddenly got interested in it, because of Crash'n the Boys Ice Challenge. I read on the internet some rumours like "my neighbor had it and he didn't give it to me since it wasn't fully translated" or something like that.

Other than Ice Challenge, planned were Soccer Challenge (Kunio Kun no Nekketsu Soccer League), Hockey Challenge (Ice Ice! Hockey Challenge), Diamond Challenge (Downtown Nekketsu Baseball Monogatari) among others.
