Unreleased Games

Throughout the lifespan of the Super NES, there were many games that never saw the light of day for various reasons. Unfortunately, most of these games are likely lost due to the passage of time. I am hoping to uncover as many of these games as possible, try to find the reasons for their cancellation, and if possible, hunt down working binaries of these games. Preserving these lost games is an important task, essentially digital archeology.

I always am looking for binaries of these games to investigate, so if you know of one that isn't already circulating on the Internet please let me know. I also love any commentary from developers on these games.

Unreleased with leaked binary

These are games where we have a binary of the unreleased version of the game, though some are early in development.
