One modder is on a quest to preserve Nintendo's forgotten Flash games

November 3, 2017 | By Alex Wawro




A game maker and modder who operates under the name "Skelux" is in the middle of a quest to find and preserve "ancient relics": the many Flash games Nintendo once made and hosted on its website.

As Motherboard aptly points out, it's an important effort to recover some of what is being lost amid the slow death of Flash.

Game devs who never saw these games, which were published as ads and companion pieces for everything from Metroid Prime to Odama, can get a quick overview of the project by watching Skelux's video on the project. 

You can also browse a list of games Skelux has recently created which both links to playable versions of games that have been rebuilt (often, evidently, by canny use of the Waybck Machine) and lists the pieces of games he's still missing.

Early last month, he put out a call for help that includes promise of a cash bounty ($50 for a complete game) for assistance in finding Flash games which were used to promote Nintendo games and are now offline.
