FatherJack hits all-time yearly contribution record!
He's an animal! News out of the forums is that FatherJack has broken the single MobyGames contributor record for points earned in one year. As אולג小奥 notes, FatherJack has now "scored an unbelievable 43255 points, beating my record of 43191 in 2012". A lot of his recent MobyGames contributions have been filling out great swathes of missing info around Commodore 64, ZX-81 games and more, but he's also been super important to adding to our arcade collection, among others! Congrats again, Sir!

Tuesday Trivia
In 1981, the Arcade classic Centipede was ported to the ZX81 platform by Jeff Minter (who founded Llamasoft the following year).

Centipede for the ZX81 was significantly different from the original, which Jeff later explained was due to the fact he had never played it. He had only seen pictures and heard about it.

Minter later went on to make Gridrunner, another game inspired by Centipede.

MobyGames is accelerating!
Just a quick joyful update, since CalaisianMindthief pointed out on the forums that we've gone from 76,000 games (strictly speaking, 'game SKUs' - each individual platforms release counts!) on Jan. 1st 2014 to 88,000 today - adding 12,000+ game entries in under 10 months!

This even compares very positively to my searches of the Wayback Machine for the period before the revitalized community under 'new management'. There were 62,000 SKUs at the end of 2011.

So basically that's: 14,000 SKUs added in _all_ of 2012 and 2013, but 12,000 SKUs and counting added in 2014 so far! Super impressive, and thanks to _all_ who added games and other content so far in 2014.

[Also notable: we've gone from 520,000 screenshots at the end of last year to 630,000 screenshows now, another super impressive stat, esp. given every single one was hand-picked by a user!]

Sciere reaches 250,000 points (!) on MobyGames
Gigantic thanks and congratulations for long-time Moby contributor & admin Sciere for making it to 250,000 points - as Cavalary points out:

"Think it's probably a milestone worthy of a news post in itself, quarter of a million, nearly half again more than anyone else and still at it after all these years. Second only to FatherJack this year too, with half of the 2014 haul from credits and close to a quarter from release info... and all of it while still dealing with some administrative duties too."

Congrats, Sciere!

Tip Of The Day

If you know an existing game was released under a different platform than is listed on its Rap sheet, and you know the release date and the publisher/developer, you can easily add it.
  1. Go to the existing game's Rap sheet.
  2. On the left frame click Contribute.
  3. On the next screen, click New Platform.
  4. Just follow the game wizard and that's it. It'll be looked over by an approver and should be added in shortly.
