Eastern Mind 2 has been FOUND title=title=

Holy fucking shit. As of yesterday, a copy of Eastern Mind 2 (Chu-Teng) has been found and ripped. I can’t link to it for legal reasons, but suffice to say, if you look for it, it is out there. Moby Dick has been slain.

This is an enormous milestone. I am so proud to have been one of the instigating forces behind the search for this game. Although I was not involved in this particular effort, it is the crowning achievement of a 5-year effort to generate awareness for Eastern Mind. I re-discovered Eastern Mind in fall 2008, and I started The Obscuritory (both the blog and my YouTube channel) in part to show people this specific crazy game. One thing led to another, and after years of evangelizing and a well-placed link from Cracked.com later, Eastern Mind has a second life, and Osamu Sato’s legacy has been completed.

I can’t contain my absolute giddiness about this discovery. My goal with The Obscuritory was to show people weirder, harder-to-find games that were forgotten by time. And goddammit if that has not been accomplished.

(Thanks to everyone who sent this in!)
