The GameCube's startup tones being the Famicom Disk System startup sound.

If that doesn't count, Karateka having Side B be a copy of the game where everything is flipped upside-down.

I was going to say Phantasy Star Cave, but it seems to be down?! Horrifying, last I checked it was still even being updated.

So instead I'll say The Phantasy Star Pages, which is much more of a "time capsule" but still neat that it survives.

It's not my thing really, but a lot of people seem to like the Apple ][ version?

Of course, the definitive Apple ][ game is Lode Runner, so maybe they just have low standards.

The 65832, a successor to the 65816 that would've continued the line. It was designed, but WDC couldn't find any buyers after Apple decided not to update the IIgs...

It's pretty ridiculous; download times are out of control and as SSDs have become mainstream you can't really assume that everyone has a few spare terabytes of spinning rust or whatever...

At least deliver your games on BD-ROM if you're going to do that, I'm sure many assets don't need to be installed :P (but physical media === dead, especially on PC)

Yep, I got one in the early 00's when they were super cheap and had a bunch of games. Eventually it died though; probably bad capacitors, but mine was in awful condition anyway and I have no idea where it is now.

weirdest game idea you've ever had?

Money Girl's DIY Magical Girl!, a tamagotchi-like game where you play the role of the magical girl's animal helper, choose a girl to give powers to and raise her to become good or evil depending on your choices.

But the catch is that this is actually a commentary of the modern DLC-obsessed game industry, to get anything done in-game you have to make increasingly-elaborate "in-app" payments to Money Girl, whose breasts become larger and her attitude becomes more mocking the more you give her. Rather than actually charge users, the game would present a bunch of increasingly-elaborate contracts where you promise Money Girl various things in order to get her to give you the in-app currency you need to raise your magical girl.

Oh, and this was going to be a LOWREZJAM entry, so the whole game was played in a 64x64 canvas. Finished most of the graphics, but the game coding didn't get far as I was busy at the time, trying something new (mouse control), and the jam ended. Oh well! Maybe I'll find another use for those graphics some day.

Bayonetta.

For retro* games, Phantasy Star II

He loves to get up on my keyboard... since I set up a workspace next to the window it's been even worse...

I need to get a really loud keyboard, like another Model M or something; maybe stepping on one of those would spook him :P This Topre clone isn't cutting it...

Who knows; it's a website that IIRC offers some downloadable software, and anti-malware stuff has gotten really paranoid about software downloadable from websites. Talk to byuu about that sometimes, he had a huge mess as Google kept blacklisting his website because it didn't trust his emulators
