How’s this for a coincidence: I chanced upon a poorly listed auction and took home an original model miniature that was made by the developers of the Philips CD-i game Zelda’s Adventure. Just days later, news broke about another incredibly rare relic from this era, the “Nintendo Play Station,” discovered outside of Philadelphia, in Bucks County, only a minute’s drive away from me. Nothing exciting ever happens around here, game-wise, but in one week, these two semi-related pieces from the past practically collided with one another.

You’ve likely read about the Play Station by now, but to learn more about my find and an unreleased CD-i game that previously had zero online coverage, check out the full story here.
