TDC'S Daily News: GOTW Games REVIVAL
News posted 18th March, 2008 by Rikus  
So i was looking at the GOTW page today and I noticed that many of the links to the older games are not working anymore. It is a shame because so many good games are just getting lost over time.

I was wondering if any of you want to help me out and find some of the games that are missing, i have to check with club about the space issue but i want to try and upload every gotw game so it can be preserved for years to come.

What do you guys think about this? Share me your ideas and comments.

Click here to check the games we are currently looking for.

That's an excelent idea

You should make a page with a really simple list of all of the names with dates. Instead of the one with 500 pages.

rikus ftw.

yea a list. maybe instead of pics just a simple small thumbnail, with the name and date.

I will upload GOTW:36 if you will link it on the GOTW page again.

Excellent idea.

Also I would like to suggest that you either create a "Top Click Games" corner,or give a golden status to some of the best games ever made in click history in your games list,to distinguish them from the rest.

I'm talking about classic games such as Eternal Daughter,The Spirit Engine and many of theFallenAngle games,which are truly amazing.
It's kinda ambiguous,because what is the BEST for someone is not the best for someone else,but I'm sure you can identify/decide those games that deserve golden status .

Well just a thought anyway .

Since the non-retroactive voting reset, GOTW is the only resource for new members to see which of the classic games are worth playing. Definitely worthwhile.

Hall of Fame is better than Best Games, because Best Games is an opinion, Hall of Fame is based on fact.

brilliant idea!

I've always been sad when I wanted to download those shiny looking oldies and they had broken links

Would you like others to help you mirroring the downloads, or would you rather have all the files on a disk that's in your possession?

Can we upload games that have been removed from the site? I think I still have Sigfreid the dark elf somewhere.

GOTW revival is an excellent idea.

But 'Hall of Fame' should definitely have also some alternative way to enter to, because some very very good games, even click classics, sometimes tend to lose in the GOTW poll simply because they are put against another click classic. Remember Noitu Love vs. Treasure Tower? What comes to gaming quality, TT would easily beat 80% of the GOTW material and still wouldn't be listed at this 'Hall of Fame'.

Noitu Love vs. Treasure Tower? I believe it was Treasure Tower vs. Within A Deep Forest :b

Yeah that's exactly what I meant to say. WADF of course, not NL.

yep. good idea. most of the detailed games must be there. :C C:

SWEET Idea Rikus .. and about time !


also a very nice idea, but it should be

"Hall of Fame" like -Mr Impossible- noted, and ~Zigzag~ explained.

Posted by Xhunterko 19th March, 2008

I like this idea as well. Although there are other things that no longer exist on the downloads page, (like good tutorials and the like) this is far more important.

By the way, may i suggest the host i use for my files? Not my account specifically, just my provider. I remember seeing something about unlimited storage space. Just a thought.

This seems like an excellent idea! There was an old game a long while ago... Bloody Massacre... it is in your download section as having been released oct. 2005... page 23 i think.

Is that still kickin around somewheres? seems the creators website has kicked the bucket...

Perhaps from now on all of the GOTW winners could have a copy stored on the TDC server so this doesn't happen again. Think that's possible?
Posted by Rikus 21st March, 2008

Hi Jay, actually thats my plan, i'm working my way from the back to the front so once i hit the current games they will all be uploaded to the dc server.
