The Video Game History Foundation has managed to recover a video game unreleased NES after the family of the developer, Chris Oberth, who died in 2012, they donate materials, whose content had been unknown until now. This video game is what appears to be an aborted project based on the movie Days of Thunder, Tom Cruise, and was spread throughout 21 floppy disks.
The members of the foundation have managed to recover the video game, by reconstructing it entirely from those floppy disks donated by the family of the co-creator of the project.

An arduous task that has not yet been concluded
The work of reconstruction of the game have not been the only obstacles with which they have been found responsible for carrying out this task, but we also had to search among all the materials donated by the family to the early 2020’s: all the belongings of technological Chris Oberth were in your basement without order, nothing was registered and of course there was a lot more than 21 floppy disks, so an important part of the project has been to clarify where there was cloth to be cut and where not to.
The funny thing is that actually the Video Game History Foundation was not looking for this game in particular, but they were investigating multiple materials in search of other games unfinished, whose existence would have known. Currently, the foundation is working on to search the rest of the materials of Oberth to see if they can retrieve more projects not completed, and ensure that give you more information and news about find a thread to pull.
