Archivist Byuu was on a quest to archive every SNES (Super Nintendo Entertainment System) game ever created, when they hit a snag: the package containing around $10k worth of games was lost by the United States Post Service. The package was en route from Frankfurt, Germany to New Jersey, United States where Byuu resides, when it just disappeared.

With the package lost, Byuu now wants to reimburse the person who sent them the games, Ironically, that person was a collector, so some of those games may be irreplaceable. Some of the games included in the lost shipment were Vampire’s Kiss, Incantation, Hagane, and various Mega Man titles.

Now that the package has been lost, Byuu’s left without too many options. For the time being, they’ve taken put a stopper on the project.

If you’re interested in the process of preserving and dumping these games, Byuu took the time to go into a little detail on NeoGAF. You can see their post here.
