Museum News


Scanning continues full speed ahead. Recent new PDFs include most of the console game manuals and catalogs, and the Coleco Adam game collection. This includes the Japanese titles, which often contain beautiful illustrations, so be sure to check some of them out even if you do not read Japanese! Also a few vintage Atari and Intellivision catalogs are among the new PDFs available for viewing. When in doubt, use the Search box to find what you are looking for.


Recent PDF additions include most of the Broderbund and Datasoft sections, as well as most of the Ultima Onlines. Interesting recent acquisitions include the famous Leather Goddesses of Phobos T-Shirt, as well as the less well-known Hollywood Hijinx T-Shirt. Photos have been added for some of the more obscure items on the Wanted List, so you can see what we are looking for!


Some nice additions this round, including prototype boxes for Wiziprint, some maps from the unreleased Wizardry 8: Stones of Arnhem, and the much sought-after Zork Users' Group Zork II poster. So head over to the hallowed halls and enjoy!


Manual scanning continues with the current focus on completing the Sierra wing, and the collection continues to grow. Recent additions of note include some Crystalware and Topologika titles, a rare Evryware release of Interactive Fiction for Heathkit/Zenith and some Molimerx editions of Mysterious Adventures. Also Sorcellerie, the French version of Wizardry, and Neverwinter Nights 2.0 from SSI. Have a look around and see the sights for yourself!


We are pleased to open a new section of the museum today, honoring Zenobi Software, thanks to a rather large donation. A little known company in the western world, however Zenobi is in fact perhaps the largest publisher of computer adventure games in history, with a count of nearly 300 games to their name! We now have on display instruction sheets and/or hint sheets for over 200 of their titles, most of which were written by individuals and submitted by mail to Zenobi to be considered for publication. Their games were available only by mail-order in the UK - initially for Spectrum computers, but later for Amiga, Atari ST and IBM PC as well - making them some of the hardest to find these days. Enjoy.
