Posted on July 31st, 2004 by Kenny Sutherland

The story of the alleged EarthBound NES prototype can be summed up in one word: Controversy.

The legitimacy of the cartridge has been called into question since it was first mentioned online in 1998. Now, more than half a decade later, Lost Levels will deliver some answers about this unique game.

Jonathan Wirth takes us on a journey into the world of copy protection screens, graphical edits, and expanded endings. That is to say, into the world of EarthBound.

Lobster Bay for the TI-99/4A

“Toucan” of Toucan’s TI-99/4A Videogame House has uploaded screenshots of Lobster Bay, an unreleased TI-99 game developed by Funware.

From what we understand, the game takes place entirely underwater, where your little scuba diver guy attempts to collect treasure across upwards of seven screens per level.

“Toucan” plans to make this, along with another unreleased Funware game by the name of Ant Colony, “available” in some form. We’ll keep you updated.
