I'm so happy it didn't all get skipped. What a huge loss that would be. It should go to a museum for sure.

It nearly got skipped and it was sitting next to the bins ready to go but the ex-Team17 guy reconsidered and knew the Retro Recipes chap (he's been in Star Wars film and knows Denis Lawson). Fortunate to say the least! We need to get it back to ol' blighty though as Worms is very much a British creation much more so than the US influences of Grand Theft Auto IMHO. The Cambridge UK Computer Museum gets my vote for its knew home!

How big are the chances the community gets access to the files, like the lightwave objects, or other game assets? Seems interesting to me at least what may lurke on those harddrives. ;)

I wonder what else is on those drives? I'd like to do an undelete on them as well to see what gems are hidden.  ;)

Witchwood is a cancelled action adventure game that was in development from 1994 to 1996 by Team 17, the studio best known for the Worms series. The game would have been published by Ocean for Amiga and PC, but in 1995 moved to PC, Playstation, Saturn, and Jaguar. As noted by Hallfiry of the Betaarchive Forum, while working on Witchwood, Team 17 was also developing Speris Legacy; another action adventure similar to the Legend of Zelda games that was released on Amiga in 1996.

Edit
Damn, Ferrels beat me due to my sluggish inet performance.... ;D
