Fake Dendy prototype Game Grumps prank?

Post by rainwarrior » Tue Dec 03, 2019 4:58 pm

Saw this video, and thought it might be fun to discuss here. Posting in General cause it's obviously fake, but I'm kinda curious where they're going with it. Or maybe mission already accomplished cause I'm sure a lot of people will watch this either way.

You should have omitted knowledge of it being fake to see pages of people in this thread stumbling at each other to say the obvious. That's a wasted opportunity. :lol:

Apparently it's an ad for an upcoming game called "Soviet Jump Game".

I swear that watching Game Grumps is one sure way to lower your IQ.

Game Grumps seemed to be implying that they had found a prototype of an Internet-enabled game that was canceled for the Dendy back in the late-90s where a DendyJr console connected to a never-released Internet adapter. Of course that sounded way-too-ambitious for the people behind Dendy.

Not even 90s, they actually claim 1987 in the video.

I kinda watched with interest until about 4 minutes in where he opens up his Dendy and pulls out that dangling serial port and was just... :roll:

It goes downhill from there.

Before that point the premise seemed plausible to me. Game Grumps get sent lots of stuff. Something unique ending up in their hands made sense to me, but...
