Unreleased SMS "Game de check! Koutsuu Anzen" (ゲームでチェック!交通安全)
Post Posted: Sun Apr 03, 2005 9:47 am
*EDIT* Topic renamed from "SMS - Self Check 3-in-1 from Tokyo Marine and Fire Insurance Co. LTD (Asunde Manabu Koutsuu Rule)".

From the awesome Suka Sega's Nofu,
This is (apparently) a copy of a copy of an article published in a Japanese paper around 1988:



A driving rule related 3-in-1 cartridge for the Sega Master System & Sega Mark III, very much in the same spirit as Car Licence (except this one looks better :)

Transcription of the article instruction:

Auctionned
Post Posted: Fri Jan 01, 2010 7:52 am
A cartridge for it is being auctionned now.
The name is "Game De Check! Koutsuu Anzen" (ゲームでチェック!交通安全), meaning something along the line of "Let's check traffic security with a game!".

http://page9.auctions.yahoo.co.jp/jp/auction/k124368577

The initial auction price is 3 millions yens (about $32000) which the seller mention is a fantasy price, and he looking for direct offers starting from a tenth of that, 300000 yens. Meaning it is just too expensive, but I think it is possible that it sells. Game is tested and working although there's no screenshots provided.

Attaching the auction text.
幻のソフト
ゲームでチェック!交通安全
動作確認済

全文を了解の上、責任を持って入札ください

セガ・マスターシステム/マークⅢ用ソフト 「ゲームでチェック!交通安全」 を
今回出品させていただきます

ネット上では所有報告も無く、実存するのかどうかも知られていないソフトで
海外のセガ愛好家のサイトでは “入手ほぼ不可能のレジェンドソフト” と評されております

これは1988年、交通安全の啓蒙・教育のために東京海上火災保険とセガが共同開発し、
希望団体に貸出された(だろう)ソフトです。
新聞記事等で報道はされましたが、実際に出回ったかどうかは不明です

これまでコレクションとして保管しておりましたが、
どれくらいの評価をされるのかという好奇心も兼ね、今回出品いたしました。
セガを心から愛されているコアなファンの方にお譲りできればと思っております

コンディションは全体に軽い経年感、ラベルに軽い黄ばみ(日焼け)があります。
端子部にも経年感がありますが、あまり使用されていなかったようで接点は元気です。
出品に際し、マークⅢにて動作確認をいたしましたが良好です。
年代を考えると全体に傷みも軽く、使用中古としてはまずまず良好の部類に入ると思います。
とはいえ、美品ではありませんので細かい状態を求める方はご遠慮ください

画面写真はおたのしみ、ということでナイショにしておきます。
シュールでポップな感を漂わせつつ、結構やり応えのある楽しいソフトです (^o^)

とりあえず高額で出品いたしますので、値下げ交渉より希望額をお伝えください。
納得の額を提示していただいた方にのみ連絡を差し上げます。
金額は30万円スタートとさせていただきます。
尚、必ず取引意思のある方のみ参加ください

1回の出品期間で交渉できるのは3回までですが、できるだけたくさんの方に
ご参加いただきたいので何回か再出品をしてじっくりと開催しようと考えています。
楽しみながら参加していただければ幸いです

Seller doesn't say from where he obtained the cartridge, but he held it in his collection for many years. He makes a reference to this very thread being the only place talking about it on the internet (quoting me for using the word "legend").

Says its good looking and well playable (with a "surreal pop" feeling to it). To be relativized on the fact that it is a driving security software, mind you.

I would be interested in purchasing it but it's not even a semi decent price now. Just hoping that the buyer is someone I know, maybe the cartridge can be borrowed. :)

Actually there's more information on Suka Sega (unsure when it appeared) from various old articles:

Well it's at least fascinately and stupidly expensive.
My offer is much lower than the asked price but since it seems like he's not selling it yet I thought I would give it a go.

Perhaps it be worth trying a forum fundraiser for any future prototype buying if its being sold to the highest bidder. I guess at least some people would be willing to donate towards getting a game so it could be dumped, rather than Bock trying to pay entirely himself. Its something that has been done on other forums for unreleased games.

Are we strong enough as a community to gather that kind of amount AND want to? I was ready to pay quite a bit (and Adol too I guess) but not even as high as the reserve price.

I don't mind trying but generally those occasions are pretty rare and I'm not fond of encouraging the price raise for those stuff anyway.

Plus it's not like we have great organization on anything ^^
FluBBa donated some money last year which helped me buy a GG prototype but I couldn't dump it yet. Things are as much delayed by the fact that few people are working on improving our dumping technology and when they do it's quite seldom (there's no off the shelf GG Reader design anywhere to be seen).

お久しぶりです。

このゲームの話題が出てくるとは…。
私もこのゲーム存在だけは知っていましたが現物は見たことがありません。
ネットオークションの内容を見る限り、ここのサイトの観覧したことがある人物のようですね。
ゲームは欲しいけど値段が高い。
20万円で落札されたようですね。

Been a while.

The subject and come out of this game is ....
There was only actual game I knew was never seen.
As far as the contents of the auction, it's like viewing a site that people have here.
Game I want is expensive.
It sounds like a bid of 200,000 yen.

No prototype fundraiser has ever raised that much money, I don't think we could have pooled together for this one.
