N64 PROTOTYPE OF WILDWATERS SOLD ON EBAY
January 29th, 2012 - 3:26 pm - Posted by Martin

You may have heard about the prototype sale on ebay, where a previously unknown copy of the Looking Glass Studios game called Wildwaters was being auctioned off with a reserve of $500.

The auction ended yesterday with a final price of no less than $1600, I think that's a record for an N64 proto sale on ebay.

Well to celebrate the sale I've updated the proto section and the page about Wildwaters.

The "Unreleased N64 games" section has also been updated with a few other unreleased Looking Glass games.
