Special Tee Shot
title

This year has been very fruitful for the discovery unreleased SNES games, and this might be the biggest one so far. Special Tee Shot is one of the white whales of Nintendo's SNES output, a game that was cancelled very close to completion. It was eventually remade into Kirby's Dream Course, one of the best games for the system. A prototype of this game surfaced years ago, but it wasn't until Trevor McAleese discovered a second one that we get a proper dump of it. Not only has he dumped the game, but he has written an excellent article to accompany the release, detailing HAL's efforts in developing golf games prior to the release of Kirby's Dream Land.

This is the first of two near final Big Sky Trooper prototypes that I received. I will release the second next month (I am currently in Japan and very busy with work). Many thanks to Nostalgia Alley and The Video Game History Foundation for allowing this to be preserved!

On video game preservation
title

I truly believe we are now in a glorious era where video game preservation is now widely popular and accepted. However, what does it mean to preserve games? And what is the main problem that we face? I have written an article to give my perspective on this.

Superman
title

Sunsoft was planning to do an action game with Superman, for for unknown reasons it was cancelled. A demo, probably used at the 1992 Summer CES has been dumped, and I have created an article about it. Many thanks to Nostalgia Alley and The Video Game History Foundation for allowing this to be preserved!

Total Football
title

Many years ago, I went through my ROM set to try and find all unreleased SNES games that have been leaked. However, I missed one - Total Football, a soccer game that was going to be published by Acclaim. With this game, I have now documented 61 unreleased SNES games that have been leaked. Many thanks to Petrovic, who brought this to my attention!

Wile E's Revenge
title

I made an article about this game many years ago when producer Rene Boutin sent me some screenshots of late version of the game. I've done an update with information on the source of the earlier version, which was leaked out by a scene group in 1995.
