Yep, I know, the wiki is a bit messy and needs maintenance. It's a bit the job of everybody to correct things when they see it.
I noticed a weird thing. Here is the Mode 9 demo, look at its category listing. What the heck is a Possible copyright violation in this thing? Even the font shouldn't possibly be (6px wide fonts weren't exactly common, and even if so, there aren't many choices for pixeling one anyway, I can't believe it could be something eligible for copyright). Possibly this category needs some revising (whatever is within), it would be nice if the discussion pages at least were updated to contain info over these (or I think it could be better to mention these straight away on the game page to be clear).
What is the purpose of the Games category? (It has only one entry which is not even a game...)
The Media without a license category might have a valid purpose? (although technically every game must be released at least under GPLv3 here if it uses the kernel which requires this) This only have a single game... Some WIP from 2009, wonder if it even exists today.
I didn't even know about this stuff! Some peoples made those and I wasn't aware. All that copyright stuff is insane and overkill for such a project, I don't want to even bother frankly. For the GPL bit, yeah I often asked folks to publish sources but many didn't comply sadly.
For sources today I think the best is GitHub: it is simple and free for open source stuff, and it is easy to pick up projects for further maintenance even if the original author left them behind. When the UCC ends, I will init a git repo for my game there. There might be others, though, but hopefully GitHub will stay around for long.
Yes seems the best place. Though I think we should create a separate repo just for all the unfinished game/demo sources...?
Attached are some roms mentionned by Jubatian. Interestingly I have the Bomberman II demo! And it looked quite promising actually, really sad it's been left unfinished. I don't have the sources either.
Found Uzetroids! It's spelled Uztroid. A very alpha demo.
Two awesome WIP games, specially Uze-a-move!

- Uze-A-Move sources: https://github.com/SteveMaddison/uzeamove
As a side note, I have probably a dozen HEX files of quick demos and unreleased stuff I gathered over the years. I would not like to pollute the game database with them, but I guess some may like to see them. A separate page for them?
