Apogee: Sample Games
Aug-2018

Back in the days games didn't came in boxes but were instead shipped in just a sleeve. This is one of those disks. There were a couple of disks I could buy but this one stood out for me since it is quite a mystery to what is actually on there!

I still don't know! ;)

Elite
Aug-2018

This was a bit of a gamble! The description of this "item" on ebay was extremely vague and it didn't came with a picture! It was also extremely cheap so all the signs said that I shouldn't buy it! But there was a little part in the description that felt very honest and I decided to take a leap of faith! Turned out to be the best decision ever!

Mar-2018

Last year I asked Nigel Kent if he maybe had a spare Jazz Jackrabbit Plush he could miss. Nigel was part of the Jazz Jackrabbit 2 team around 1998/1999 (Administration) and after years of searching I almost lost hope in ever finding a plush.

After quite some time suddenly a package arrived with the plush! Nigel knew I already got one from Michiel van der Leeuw but he send it to me anyway.

This is really awesome Nigel!
Thank you so much!

Very unique Davilex donation

He also worked on the "A2 Racer" series and the game "Amsterdoom". ;) He went to see if he had some unique RedCat/Davilex related items for my collection. From a plastic bag he took out some very special items.
To list a few:

John Romero's Broken Keyboard (Signed)!

Feb-2018

I never would have thought this would end up in my collection! :P

One day Brenda Romero shared a story of John (co-founder of id software) playing a game of Quake against Ronan Pearce. After he lost a game (level DM4), the keyboard started to malfunction due to repeated beatings from John. John then said the following:
"I think this keyboard was build with a build-in beating detector. As soon as you start thrashing it, it instantly turns off, and the harder you thrash it, the longer it stays off."

When I heard that I knew that this keyboard deserved a place in history, so I asked if I could have it. Both John and Brenda were very kind and shipped the keyboard to me. It was signed by both John Romero and Ronan Pearce.

John and Brenda, thank you both very much for this awesome gift!

Dangerous Dave T-Shirt (Signed)!
