Shovelware Diggers --- Recent Episodes

Since the dawn of personal computers, many companies came along to cash in on the common basement-programmer's desire to make their product known. Combined with the advent of CD-ROM media, this led to some of the most MASSIVE archives of software ever put together, the vast majority of which was easily forgettable. A software title or game which has pretty much become completely unknown since the only place to find it is shovelled into one of thise massive archives is commonly dubbed "shovelware".

Now it's time to unearth it all... with YOUR help!

Each weekly episode of Shovelware Diggers features a very quick look at three to five games burried away in a shareware software archive I have access to, however, it is up to Patreon supporters to choose which folders I focus in on! Anyone pledging $8 or more over on Kris' Patreon page is automatically on the dig team and able to submit their folder selections either by eMail or through Patreon itself! An effort is made to balance selections out so everyone gets a chance, but it's recommended that you choose about a dozen folders your first time (which is also where your selections will be capped at).

The archive currently being unearthed is the Softkey 2000 Shareware Games collection. You can check out a listing of the entire directory structure of this collection by going to the Directories page. Folders already unearthed, either on this show, or on Ancient DOS Games, have been marked red.

Below will be a list of recent episodes which can be watched on the Pixelmusement YouTube Channel, or you can click the following link to check out the Shovelware Diggers Playlist!
