How to Help Unseen64!

There are many great people that help the Unseen64 Archive with info, images and videos, but it’s not easy to find all the beta and cancelled stuff that’s out there! Do you want to help too? Send us an e-mail,  join the Unseen64 Forum or follow us on Facebook and Twitter!

How can you help the Unseen64 Archive? It’s simple!

1) Share Unseen64: do you have a website or a blog? Spread the unseen! Add to your blogroll or in your links page, write a post about lost games, talk about U64 with your friends and share your beta-geekness: if more people will know about this site, we could have more contributions and the archive could grow with more screens, videos and information!

2) Add your info, images or videos in the Unseen 64 archive! You can leave a comment in every page, to add more details, corrections, links to new images or Youtube videos. U64 is a community of gamers that love beta & cancelled games and you can be part of this community.

3) Add a new game in the Unseen64 archive: do you know of a beta or cancelled videogames that is still missing from the Unseen 64 archive? Send us an email with the description, some images or videos and we will add it to the site ASAP! You can have your name as the author of the article, as a contributor or remain anonymus if you want.

4) Donations:

What: raising money
Why: support the Unseen64 Archive
How: your donations
When: now!
Why: because you love unseen games.

Unseen 64 is an independent site. No money is generated from our work so we must pay each and every server bill ourselves. Thanks to your support we were able to rise enough donations to pay the server! We are super happy :)

Remaining donations are used to repay some of the time spent working on Unseen64 or set aside in a “preservation fund“, for emergency site expenses and other equipment that could help the archive: all expenses will be discussed with our patrons before to be used!

For more details check: How does Unseen64 use Donations? If you want to donate some of your love, we accept one-off donations through PayPal (you can donate to [email protected]) and pledges on Patreon!

Big gaming networks such as IGN or Kotaku have the power and the money to pay a team to work full-time on their websites, and publishing daily updates. We don’t have their resources, but we think we have something better: we have you, a community of gamers who knows why it’s important to remember beta and cancelled games.

Together on Patreon we can rise enough donations to pay the Unseen 64 server and keep the site online for everyone around the world

You can just donate how much or little you want. Every cent is really appreciated and sent towards the U64 Archive, and if you can’t donate, just share this to your rich cousin! Thank you for even reading this :)

2021 Server: 100% funded, thank you!

5) Do you play videogames? Great! Now, when you finish a new game, you can just look at the old images and videos for it and see if there are some differences in there. Easy! You can use websites with big archives of images and videos, like these:

Maybe you will find some beta material

6) Do you have a videogame magazine collection from ’80, ’90, ’00? There could be some nice beta images in all those pages! With some free time, a scanner and beta-passion, you can find unseen screenshots in your game magazines that maybe are not online in any website.. yet!

7) You do not have a videogame magazine collection? No problem! Here are some great websites that have big archives with scans of old game magazines:
N64 Magazines from Spain

You can just download them and see if you can find some beta screenshots in them!

8) You do not know what games were cancelled? Again, not a problem! Here are some list for unreleased videogames:

Then you can just search on google, check on your magazines (real ones or the scan) and see if there exist some media for them!

9) Are you a videogames developer or do you know some videogames developers? Do you have any interesting stories, infos, images, videos or strange facts about your work on games, the changes between the proto and the final version, the causes of the cancellation, your hopes for the project? If you want to share these things with the community, you can send us an email, we will really appreciate your contribution to the U64 archive! And you can remain anonymous if you want :)

Thank you <3

    I noticed you guys didn’t have any information posted up about the Kingdom Hearts 1 beta trailer from 2001. In the trailer you can see many differences between the beta build and the final build. Such as Sora roaming around Disney Castle. In the final build, you do not go to Disney Castle, but there is an image of it on the world map, but it is never selectable. Just thought I would contribute. You guys are doing awesome work. Here’s a Youtube link for the footage:

    ciao monokoma io sono yoshi luigi, ieri ho scitto (e spedito) un articolo riguardante un gioco cancellato sviluppato da apogee chiamato Megaloman, lo puoi pubblicare sull’ archivio per favore?

  3. What Should I Put Here

    I found no info on a game named “Interceptor” (besides the fact it was a Japanese exclusive fps for the Virtual Boy)

    They have not arrived yet, but I’m getting some Micom BASIC Magazine issues from 1984. I can confirm these to have completely undocumented beta content of Hudson’s Mario games from that year: (non-Super) Mario Bros. Special, Punch Ball Mario Bros., and the extremely obscure Donkey Kong 3: Dai Gyakushuu. I will have more information about this within the next couple of days, though some issues will be arriving a few weeks later.
