QuoteEarly in 2020 we released around 800GB of video game beta builds we funded via donations and data recovery on systems we had bought/had been donated. While working on a part two we hit 500GB and then the nintendo leaks happened. I jokingly said we should do a terarelease, aka 1TB of video game betas. Sadly it didn't go to plan, we're now past 2TB of content and even with this release going live today we haven't finished. There's more to come in 2021! 👀How did we obtain all this history?Via donations towards the site. In 2020 we had over $12,000 donated towards us and became a non profit museum in september 2020. Our goals simple, save as much video game history as possible.We buy lots of items from defunct companies, developers and auctions. Much of the data you see here is recovered from HDD's from developer systems. Around 90% of the XBOX 360 data releasing today is what we recovered with data recovery tools coded by our community. The same goes for much of the PlayStation 3, Wii, WiiU, DSi & 3DS. This data was recovered from HDD's or the NAND in some cases or memory cards we found/had donated towards this.Video Game History should be open to the public, It's simply not preserved if on a system locked away to time. Often these systems fail, such as the cases with SEGA losing source code or Criterion's developer PC's ending up at a scrap seller without backups being made before. Or another developers PC's ending up in a skip in the UK in 2019 undumped and lost as we never found out until it was too late.With that we ask you go buy the latest games from your favorite game developers and support them.
