Have you played Mario vs. Donkey Kong 2 or Wario World online? If so, you’ve either spent a few minutes (or hours) playing promotional Nintendo flash games circa 1999-2010 or you’ve headed over to Origami64, the website of a fan who goes by Skelux. That’s because he’s restored three dozen Nintendo Flash mini games for your entertainment.
According to The Verge, these Flash-based games disappeared after the release of the actual games they were trying to promote. But Skelux has found some files and has re-released them.
In the video, below, Skelux gives us some backstory on his quest for games, as well as about the games themselves: For example, Mario’s Memory Madness used Adobe Director, a pre-Flash animation platform.
He also says, “The bounty for finding new games is still open.” He’s offering $50 to anyone who can provide files for missing games.
Former Nintendo employees, or people who obsessively save files (we know you’re out there), President Grant is calling you.
