i believe it's okay for me to talk about this here, since the game was considered abandonware in 2001, but if it's not, feel free to delete this!

i already talked about this, but does ANYBODY have a download for aquazone deluxe? i found a website that USE to have links for the whole game and the metric ton of downloadable fish species that came with it, but they were all uploaded on some really obscure hosting site and they're all gone now! GAAAAAH

i'd really like to play with it at some point, it looks super neat

i emailed kezune to see if she still has her download of it, but if all else fails i'll try the mac version

also, i found some old website with all the official addons that was ARCHIVED COMPLETELY! so that's good

I've had a go at running Aquazone and Pinna (aquazone with birds) but I don't know how to do it on a 64 bit system.

i think you need to use virtualbox to run 16-bit programs on 64-bit systems
where the heck did you find pinna?? i looked for it everywhere and could only find a listing for it on japanese amazon

backups :D a copy of it has been hiding in my creatures archive folder, but not sure where it originated, or in what language it is.

Edit: taking down the link because I feel iffy sharing something I can't guarantee works.

NEAT
is it just the updaters, or does the update install the full game?

I have really no memory if it's the same one I played with like 15 years back, or a more recent download I lucked across and never got to try.

I'm assuming the executable that's not an update is the game, but I'd definitely run it in a VM just to be sure. (Not like it'd run outside a vm anyway.)

it MAY just be the updater, though i don't know why you'd upload a file that consists of just that and label it like it's the full game

i can't test it right now, buuut here's hoping it's an installer? :'D

I tested both pinna exe's with dosbox with no luck. It could just be me thought...

IMPORTANT UPDATE: i found a guy who still has the game and they're gonna send it to me! OH YEAHHHHHH

Thanks for hooking me up bro XD

I picked a couple of canaries, let's see how long I can keep them alive. I guess they're not going to breed till it's spring IRL... also I've had a look around and there seems not to be ANY surviving website with any kind of guide. I'll try different search engines maybe. Or does anyone here read japanese?

I'm wondering if there's a way to export and share birds, you can put them in and out of cages, but they don't seem to be stored in separate files.


EDIT: Bing does pull up more stuff, I found an old shop with the help of that and Web Archive, that has this interesting graphic:




Edit2:

I have found the motherlode! also look at that ridicolous nesting doll of urls, lol.
And another, maybe better explanation

Could anyone pm the download, if one has been found for pinna and/or aquazone? Also does that site have a download? I couldn't find one if it does. Thank you!

More links:

Archive of aquazone accessories, many downloads actually work. Will try to test in-game and take some pictures.

Gravel maker, "a tool to create and edit bottom sand file of Aqua zone."

I think I've already linked to a page of this, but it's worth linking to the main age for the sheer amount of SCIENCE! about both AZ and Pinna

More AZ genetics and breed info, might be redundant but it's nice and clear

Speculation:

hmm, I wonder: https://imgur.com/a/zM1TuFS

Also from the original website "Beautiful singing tweets change and frequently change depending on the mood and physical condition of the little birds.

Birds are thinking and acting. That behavior pattern is determined by genetic inheritance from parents, and there is a difference in one person's character."

Just to add, if anyone would like a copy, feel free to get in touch with myself or SpaceShipRat. :) Keep in mind you'll need an older OS to run it, however.
