Puggsy is a 1993 puzzle-platform video game developed by Traveller's Tales and released by Psygnosis on Mega Drive and Mega-CD consoles, and on the Amiga home computer. During development of the Amiga, Genesis, and Sega CD versions, there was the SNES version of the game that was in development. The build was shelved because, according to Jon Burton,[1] poor sales of the Genesis version made the publisher not want to release a SNES version as well, even though he claims the build was almost finished.

Availability[edit | edit source]

Before 2022, only one copy existed being in the hands of Jon Burton, in which he made a video showcasing an earlier copy of the game with some files and world map, alongside some music from the game.

On April 27, 2022, it was announced in a tweet by The Cutting Room Floor (TCRF) showing their acquisition of a new game board.[2] On April 30, TCRF confirmed the board was Puggsy for SNES, showing it in a WATA case and announcing a Twitch livestream demonstrating the game. [3] By May 6, a three hour stream showcased the game,[4] with the ROM later being posted on its TCRF page.[5]
