Flower: Missing Entry in HOL

I have got my hands on a game preview which I could not find in HOL.

Here is the download link: http://madeinpixel.free.fr/Images/In...FloPreview.lha

I have no idea whether the game has ever been finished or not (no info in the french interview) but I guess some of you might know how to find more infos?

cheers

Hmmm, this is what it says in the file called FloPreview.readme but no clues as to whether or not is was actually finished...

Quote:
Short: Jump'n'Run Game
Author: Sunny Design
Uploader: pmuniz@wanadoo.fr
Type: game/demo
Requires: A500 with 1 Mo
Distribution: OK

Date: Wednesday, 15th December 2004


What it is
----------
It is an Amiga Disk File image, known as ADF format.

You may need ADF2Disk to run it on Classic Amiga.

Also runs on Amiga Emulators like UAE & Fellow.

It is a "never released" game preview on A500.

We are looking for talented people to code it
on new hardware systems (GBA, PC, PSX, PegasOS...)

@blo:

I've created a basic HOL record for Flower http://hol.abime.net/5691

Could you please have a look and let me know what information should be added.

Also, do you know if the demo that you link to above the same as the demo that was included on the Generation 4 coverdisk?

There's really need of an alternative "already included in HOL" little database like this AGTW ?

Furthermore it contains so few games respect to HOL

Yes, the site is an official Amiga version of Games That Weren't 64: http://gtw64.retro-net.de and so has its own identity.

It has relatively few games because I've been mostly adding entries as I track down developers of the games for interview. This is time consuming and often difficult with many dead ends.

You could add AGTW infos directly into HOL, my personal opinion

Finding infos and maybe even the full version of an unreleased game isn't a waste of time. It's a great thing that Cody does it What's your problem with AGTW?
