MobyGames News

On this day in 1994
The classic SNES game, Earthbound, was released in Japan on this day in 1994.

It was later released in the US in June 1995, along with an unusual marketing campaign centered around the idea that "boys love smelly gross stuff".

The ads used the slogan, "This game stinks". And they had a $10 coupon with the instruction, "Cut this coupon not the cheese".

Unfortunately, said coupon expired in 1996...

State Of MobyGames - August 2014
We've done a post updating everyone on the great strides made since last December on MobyGames - and what we're hoping to do next, with your help. It's over here in our forums.

Congrats, Piltdown_Man; more platforms!
Just a quick update, since time and contributions whiz onwards - with a couple of key MobyGames updates:

- Massive congrats to piltdown_man for reaching 70,000 points - including 1006 games and 16,223 screenshots - on MobyGames! As Patrick Bregger notes in his thread: "As most approvers will know, he is not only dedicated to document shareware game collections and other obscure games (mostly PC) but also to document every single thought process and every piece of evidence in his comments to the approver." Amazing work!

- As noted by Kabushi in the new platforms thread, we've now added two brand new (and rather niche!) platforms - the Tomy Tutor/Pyuuta (info), and the Pokemon Mini (info) - which only has ten games total! So have at 'em...

New platforms & new MobyGoal (arcade!)
A couple of notable updates! Firstly, we've turned the keys of game platform adding over to veteran admin Kabushi, and he's gradually adding several that we don't have currently. Most recently, the Tatung Einstein (info) & the PC-6001 (info) are now added!

Separately, we've set up a new MobyGoal, and it's to get to 1500 arcade games - actually, we're already at 1300, so this one may be quite straightforward and we may end up extending it later, but let's see how we do! (Considering we didn't even have an arcade section 6 months ago, already getting to 1500 games is super-impressive.)

Latest MobyGoal - 250 ZX81 games - reached!
Congrats to everyone - and especially Kabushi and FatherJack, who went on a bit of an adding spree - for already reaching our latest MobyGoal. There are now 250 ZX81 games listed on the site, complete with description, screenshot, publisher and more. (Don't stop there - let's try to get to a complete system snapshot!) Next MobyGoal is coming very soon...!

Tip Of The Day

When assigning companies in release info items, make sure to spell the company name correctly. New companies are added every day, but most of them are already listed on the site. When multiple possibilities appear in the dropdown list, look up the differences between the names in the company profile pages. Some companies have separate divisions for developing, publishing, distributing, administration, localization or porting, often depending on the region. This is usually described in the company overview. Also, some names are used for specific timeframes - select the name that fits.   more tips
