Would you like to play the Goemon 64 or Earthworm Jim 2 proto?

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:

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!
