Tech Demo

There's a lot of games out there that somehow get neglected in the general run of things. Sometimes, this is because of bad press or poor publicity, or just that the game itself wasn't very good. Sometimes, games don't always make it past the beta stage of development, leaving us with only incomplete demos or prototypes.

This site gathers together some of these lost games and digs around a bit, to see if there's anything interesting left. The pages may have details of content not seen in the final game (if there was one) and codes or hacks for rendering this content playable (if at all possible).

Update info can be found in the Tech Demo blog.

The second edition of my ebook is now available on Amazon, which looks at the Titan A.E. game for the Playstation. It is the definitive guide not only to the demo, but also how the final game might have played. It also has a comprehensive walkthrough for all playable exploration levels, including the previously inaccessible Research Laboratory. As you can see above, Akima is also playable (via codes). Click on the picture for more information and to buy it on Amazon.

Not happy with the way the Terminator or Robocop franchises have gone? Why not check out an alternative that combines the best of both worlds. My ebook looks at the available Sega versions of Robocop Versus The Terminator and The Terminator games to see if these form a cohesive universe and timeline. While it does not have walkthroughs, it does include codes and information on hidden areas and levels. Click on the image above to buy it on Amazon and help to keep this site going. Thanks!
