Bubsy 4 theory

Bubsy 4 theory

You think, that Bubsy 3 "No More Mr. Nice Guy!" is the rarest media from Bubsy? Well apparently, Michael Berlyn tried to make Bubsy 4 after Bubsy 3D. Or did he? There are only two articles about it. The first article confirms the existence of it:   "We learned a lot about 3D design and coding and the environment and what could and what couldn’t be done," he said, "and we went to Sony to pitch them on doing a product. We brought a prototype for Bubsy 4, which was really just nothin

Collection of Michael and Muffy Berlyn papers including Bubsy's collection!!

On January 21st 2021, Julia (Archivist at The Strong National Museum of Play) announced on Twitter, that collection of Michael and Muffy Berlyn papers are now available on a museum called The Strong National Museum of Play, which is in New York.    In the page from the museum it says, they have a lot of Bubsy archives such as: “Bubsy” – game proposal, tech specs, cost documents, notes; 1991 “Bubsy” – game design documentation, bug lists, notes, memos; 1991-1992

Bubsy 3 files on the screenshot (theory)

Today, I looked at one of the screenshots of Bubsy 3 "No More Mr. Nice Guy!" and checked at the files, that are shown in the screenshot.    I don't know, if I chose the right files for Bubsy 3, but I think those are the ones. I looked at definitions of each file on fileinfo.com and made theories around them. Once again, it's just a theory not a fact (but definitions of each files is true).     If you don't understand, what I'm talking about, here's the page: https:

Updates about Bubsy 3 "No More Mr. Nice Guy!" (more info!)

Steven78 Steven78 is the person, who posted the screenshot of the title screen, the script of codes and the description on NintendoAge. He lives in Netherlands and has a lot of prototypes of games. He even has games, that were never published or completed (such as the Pac world, Shadows Of The Wind...). Where did he got them? I'm not sure.    It was really hard to find his sites/adresses. I eventually found out, that this person has been silent since 2017 according to SMSpower pag

Conversation with Mark Eyles about Bubsy 3

Some days ago, I asked Mark Eyles through E-mail about Bubsy 3. At first, he thought I meant Bubsy 3D. So he said that he wasn't involved in this and gave me a link to Bubsy 3D page. Then I explained to him more about it and he then understood me.   He said, that he doesn't remember working with Bubsy. There could be two possibilities he said: - either they are just referring to a discussion he had with someone at some point about game ideas or - it was some other game

Bubsy Claws Encounters of the Furred Kind (1993, Sega Mega Drive) commercial found!

Bubsy Claws Encounters of the Furred Kind (1993, Sega Mega Drive) commercial found!

A few months ago, I uploaded a compilation of Bubsy commercials (1993-2019). If you look on 1:26, there's an interesting commercial, that advertised Bubsy in Claws Encounters of the Furred Kind for Sega Mega Drive in 1993. But unfortunetaly, the footage itself was distorted at the start and at the end, so we don't know how it starts nor ends. But at that time, this was the only footage that was available to see.    But a month ago, Accolade uploaded a full polished

Bubsy 2 (Preview Prototype)

I found the blog by Buyatari, that talks about Bubsy 2 preview prototype for Sega Genesis. Which is pretty interesting considering, that they got that only people, who previewed this game in 1994. Those were Scott Barnes, Alex V. Cabal, Harry Chavez, Dexx Dorris, Steve Fallas, Richard Gangwish, Sandy Jackson, Chris Nash, Kevin Seiter and James A. Vitales. So only 10 copies of it.     Here are pictures, that he showed:               Theory Just like Bu

Bubsy in Claws Encounters of the Furred Kind (Prototype)

There was a prototype of Bubsy in Claws Encounters of the Furred Kind, that was (according to the description of it) LESS polished than the original. Which is very interesting. The price was 799$, but no one has ever bought that.   However, there is a picture of the cartridge and the tittle screen of it.        Theory The theory of this one is that it might have some screenshots of the prototype of this game besides the title screen. It's proven by l

How Many Ports of Bubsy 2 (1994) Exist?

How Many Ports of Bubsy 2 (1994) Exist?

After the first Bubsy game came out in 1993, they made a sequel and simply called it Bubsy 2. This is the only title of a Bubsy game, that has no pun like all of his games are called. The sequel wasn't successful and not many people liked this game. Even Michael Berlyn (the creator of Bubsy) hated Bubsy 2 and said, that it was a fail of his franchise. Even tho' it was a lack of success, it still has many releases, but not as much as the first game got. So, let's check them out.

Bubsy commercials (1993-2019)

Bubsy commercials (1993-2019)

This is a compilation of Bubsy commercials from 1993 to 2019. There's no commercial for Bubsy in Fractured Furry Tales or for Bubsy 3D. Right now, Bubsy 1 and 2, Bubsy: The Woolies Strikes Back and Bubsy: Paws on Fire! are the only ones who got commercials. Right now, I found 10 of them. Bubsy in Claws Encounters of the Furred Kind got the most with 5 commercials and the less got Bubsy 2 with only 1 commercial.   The only other dubbed Bubsy commercial is in Spanish, that

For so many years, Bubsy fans wondered: How fast is Bubsy the Bobcat? Well, I've finally cracked the code! I've finally discovered, how fast he is and I'm happy to show you all.   So here we go:   First, we have to know, how to calculate speed. Which is easy to calculate by dividing distance with time.

Bubsy 2 (Gameboy) I found the glitch!

I've recently found the glitch on Bubsy 2 for Gameboy. I basically found the glitch, which you can have infinite life bar!   But that wasn't easy to find, because when I made this glitch by an accident, I didn't know what I did. So I had to try it again and again and again, until I found the way to do it. So here's how you do it:   Step 1:  Go to Bubsy 2 for Gameboy (duh) and choose grand tour.   Step 2:  When you're here, choose the plane level.
