The SNES preservation project is dead thanks to the United States Postal Service

Amateur game archivist Byuu has recently taken on the endeavor of digitally preserving every SNES game. The project is dead after a shipment containing 100 carts valued at somewhere between $7500 and $10,000 were lost in transit.

The games belong to a European collector who had planned to lend his games to Byuu 100 at a time this being the second of five shipments. Byuu had planned to dump the carts for preservation and then return them to their owner.mwcartdifferent

Byuu spent some time on Reddit looking for help from anyone who worked for USPS in New Jersey’s processing center to no avail.

For now, the project is on hold while Byuu attempts to reimburse the collector now missing a sizable chunk of his games.
