About

Indie-ana Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Archive

Join me on my quest to (re)discover lost classics from the recent history of video games so that they can continue to be enjoyed. 

Goals
  • find
  • preserve
  • play
  • hack
  • document
  • translate
  • recreate
  • share

My time will be split between the above tasks, though not all of these will apply to each and every game. The list should give you an idea of what to expect.

Example forthcoming posts...

  • a rare MSX game from the cover disk of a Japanese magazine and my first foray into fixing bugs in emulator source code
  • reproducing an old Hudson Soft T-shirt and putting it back into production
  • add a new feature to a PS1 game using only cheat codes
  • fixing a bug in an old Palm OS game right on the device with no PC required
  • debug a SMS game to find hidden features and levels
  • a competition winner from competition for an esoteric Japanese game programming language (perhaps reimplemented in PICO-8 with added 2-player mode?)
  • Unearthing The Incredible Machine for Palm OS
  • A selection of indie Japanese Palm OS games
