Excellent work, Scott!

Great to see screenshots of the unreleased 'Fantasy Football' and 'Tank'.

That is awesome, Michael is a dear friend, we worked together at EA in the early 00's making rather spiffing LOTR games!


He is a genuinely lovely chap, with boundless enthusiasm!




P.S. It's Vaughn Bode not Vaught Bode

Wow they made a game based on the Choose Your Own Adventure books?  I still have my original copy of The Cave of Time from when i was a kid. I picked it up and read it a few months back. Brought back a lot of memories. Had no idea there were ever games based on those books! Very cool!  :thumbsup:

I am fascinated reading about how very many game projects fail to ever be finished (for various reasons).  It is great to see at least some of them documented; especially cross-referencing the fading memories with contemporary catalogues, press releases, and other types of documentation.
