Games with extra content copy protection

Group Description

Games that use copy protection by identifying a specified letter, word, or symbol in feelies, touchies, or any physical object considered to be extra or bonus content/material, based on in-game copy protection instructions.

Extra content may come in the form of booklets, calenders, comic books, dice, maps, novels, journals, student ID cards, photographs, newspapers, developer's underwear, etc.

Entering the correct letter/word/symbol will allow the player to continue the game, while failing to do so will prompt the game to exit or any equivalent inhibiting the player to continue the game.

  • This game group is specifically for copy protection via extra content. Copy protection in the form of a game manual or code-wheel should go in their respective game groups.
Games that were later released as freeware and may have their copy-protection features disabled may also qualify for this game group.
