Save the rest of ruins of the "DIV games studio" empire (Miscellaneous)

posted by Laaca(R) Homepage, Czech republic, 07.06.2009, 22:47

In past there was a great game making program (programing language which can be compared to Game maker)
It was called DIV games studio and there were thousands of games written in it.
The scene around was focused on site http://www.div-arena.com but unfortunately around year 2004 the company Darkstard got into trouble the site was deleted and the scene doesn't exist anymore. The all the thousands of games and WIP projects are gone.
To have a notion how the resulted games look like download the masterpiece "Bert the barbarian". It was quite popular so it can be downloaded from other places too, for example here:
http://www.downloadfreegames.co.uk/games/details.asp?id=11

So, what I want to do:
The lost pages can be found on web archive on http://www.archive.org
They usually don't archive the files however sometimes do. But usually only the small ones.
Anyway - better than nothing.
So lets open for example http://web.archive.org/web/20020802042736/www.div-arena.com/
and try what can be saved. I already downloaded few small games.
