A long time ago, long before any of you were born, in the closing of the 20th century, in another life, I made video games.
I was just a kid. And I was obsessed with Final Fantasy 3.
So I made a game called Sword of Cobalt, seen above. I only made 2 episodes of it. The above episode 1, which was just like a battle tutorial, and a second episode that was a dungeon.
The computer it was on got bricked and I lost it. Though googling for it over the years I found out that it had a small following of people who were also looking for it. Which was strange because it was very short, not very good, and poorly made.
This cool dude Steve found the file on an old hard drive, and got it to work and took the above pics.
Weird nostalgia flowing through me now. Haven’t looked at this in maybe 14 years.

last teaser of this stuff
You never knew these characters had names the whole time?!?
The disk cowboy came in from the Kowloon night and jacked a double neon hack pill into his data port. He gently slung his data-penis over the cyberwhore’s right cheekbone and dialed up a stroke program. Outside a digital dog humped the armature of a glowing green cube. Inside his mind Compuservo motors cued up Beethoven’s 5000000th symphony and the cyberwhore put a virtual Chinese vagina to her forehead. ‘it’s gonna be a long night’ said the box.
The Bing-Bong Dingle-Dong data-jacked a half-slot PCIM fizz bust into the soft-terminal set in temper foam on the television floor, half obscured beneath a Pan-Asian Post-Synthetic machine woven, nanocarbon rug. The machine whirred to life, a small puff of green-grey smoke emanating from the 4D CD RD drive. “Damn!” thought Rod. Looked like he was going to have to “hoof it.”
“Long time no see data slinger,” said the portugese neuroscientist from inside is data tube “Thought you had your computer wings clipped after the holo-nixon incident? Looks like you want to get high… Information superhigh…”
He was wasting his time with the old man, he couldn’t tell a Necroplastic RFTP Matrix Drive from a 50 foot high hologram of his own dick.
“Yeah, its amazing what you can get for a tesseract full of nano-bits in Cyberlin since they tore down that Firewall,” Rod said, opening his mouth to reveal row upon row of dimly glowing dentodrives, the combined hum of which caused his voice to quaver.
“Even got my neurosystem swapped out with one I dug out of a pair of Siamese Twins. Twice the spines, triple my seed rate. I can dataskate from here halfway to iBiza before you even find a p2p mesh node with that rusted out cryostate modem you got strapped to whatever you call you that biomass over there,” he said, pointing to the man’s dog.
“That’s my dog…”
“Don’t move, whiteman” said the cyberzulu through his plastishield. He was making a holographic barbie and ken get married with his left hand while fingering the trigger of a Dainippondaido data flinger with his right. Outside a billboard shimmied.
Rod stood as still as the platnitonium statue of Dear Leader towering above them, only the bits and chips of data in veins daring to move.
“Go on, climb,” the cyberzulu said, without so much as a stutter in his makeshift cyber nuptials. He motioned towards Dear Leader’s massive leg with his Denodinopiddlepaddlewigwong data flinger.
“Now, I know what you may be thinking,” the cyberzulu continued. “How many datablasts have I flung? Six terabytes or only five? To tell you the truth, in all this excitebike I lost track myself. But, this is a Dikodikowibblewiddletickletocktock, the most powerful Data Flinger in the world. It’ll blow your circulatory system clean out of body and all over our Dear Leader here. So, the question you got to ask yourself is, do I feel lucky? Well, do ya, cyber punk?”
Since everyone on my dashboard is writing cyberpunk texts.
