Probably some of you are already aware of this, but last week an huge list of prototypes from DreamTR‘s own collection was offered to the community to be dumped and preserved. You can check the complete list of protos at the Hidden Palace Forum.

Here at Unseen 64 we are especially interested in the Mystical Ninja: Starring Goemon (Nintendo 64) and the Earthworm Jim 2 (SNES / Genesis) prototypes. We have decided to start a fundraising campaign to find enough people interested to donate the money that is needed to dump and preserve these 2 games.

How to? Whoever wants to help to preserve  these prototypes, donates the money  to DRX (owner of the Hidden Palace). All donations go to [email protected] via Paypal (you can pay with Credit Card or PostePay too!), he gives the money to DreamTR for the dump, then the rom is given to DRX so he can distribute it to everyone.

To donate go to the Hidden Palace website and click on the Paypal button. (If the link does not work, try to write in your browser www.hidden-palace.org (Dont click on the the link, but write it) and go in the “Contribute” section).

Be sure to write in the “description” the name of the prototype that you want to preserve, it’s important. So, write “Money for the Mystical Ninja Goemon 64 proto dump” or “Money for the Earthworm Jim 2 proto dump”.

So, how much we need to preserve these prototypes?

For the Goemon 64 proto we need to reach 350$ and currently we have already donated about 190$. That means that we still need to find only 9 more people that could donate 20$ (€ 14,57 EUR) or multiples of $20 and the proto will be dumped! If you love Goemon 64, you cannot let this to be lost.

Here’s the Goemon 64 donators list (will be updated daily). When you have donated, please leave a comment to this post or in the Hidden Palace Topic:

For the Earthworm Jim 2 proto we need to reach about 200$. That means that we still need to find 15 people that could donate 14$ (€ 9,20 EUR) or multiples of $14 and the proto will be dumped!

What could we find in these protos? How much incomplete are they? Sadly we are not sure. You can have a look a the Goemon 64 Beta and Earthworm Jim 2 Beta pages, to have an idea about the beta content that those protos could have. The protos could just be almost-complete builds, but it’s worth the chance to preserve them before they could be lost forever!

    Of all the times to be flat broke… I’d donate if I could. Good luck with this, especially that Goemon prototype!

    Thanks for the info Hulio, it seems that there’s a problem with their tracking software. Try to write in your browser hidden-palace.org (Dont click on the the link, but write it) and go in the "Contribute" section. Let me know if it works :)

    I have this rom: Earthworm Jim 2 (U) (Beta)
    i don’t know if it is the same version that are you looking for.
    Send me a email if you want this version.

    1. monokoma Post author

      Really interesting.. thanks for the info Thico! I found it with Google :) I dont know if this version is the same as the one from DreamTR… but it’s possible.

  4. monokoma Post author

    Thanks Nico! It’s really appreciated :) Currently we are at 120$ for the Goemon 64 proto, with 2 other people that should donate soon. Keep it up! We just need 11 more people

  5. Nagisa

    I want to donate for Goemon, but I have no PayPal account. I’ll write an email to the Hidden Palace guys for another payment metod.

  6. monokoma Post author

    Only 160$ to go for playing the Goemon 64 proto! If you know someone that loved this game, please tell him about this proto.. it’s almost here :)

    1. monokoma Post author

      The fundrise for the Goemon 64 proto is still going on, but sadly it seems that there are not enough Goemon-fans so we’ll probably have to wait a lot for the amount to be reached :P

    1. monokoma Post author

      It seems that the Goemon 64 “beta” was acquired by a collector and it will be released sometime in the future… we’ll have to wait :O From the info i got, it seems that it was just a review copy and there were not visible differences (maybe in the code?)

  7. XeinR

    excuse me, is the earthworm jim 2 beta project still up for donation? I sure hope so! and if so, how do I donate?

    1. monokoma Post author

      As far as i know, the proto is not available anymore but it’s possible that someone has got it and could leak it in the future :O

  8. Notshane

    Darn, I wish I had known about this sooner. I am pretty wealthy, so I could have easily contributed to the Goemon project! Oh well.

    1. monokoma Post author

      It seems that in the end the Goemon proto was not much different from the final version, but it would have been interested to know for sure.. You can still support the whole Unseen64 archive on Patreon if you wish ;)

  9. ClassicCryptic

    I heard that now someone else owns this, but can he dump this prototype? I’m a N64 hacker and would like to see inside the game. Cheers’ ClassicCryptic
