The Hunt for Resident Evil 1.5 (Richard Mandel) by DigitalExplorations
This is the story of a modern-day treasure hunt.

It was not for lost pirate gold, or the riches of a long forgotten kingdom in some remote deep cave.  It was not for some valuable antique at an estate auction, or a collector's find at a flea market, or even a chance discovery at someone's garage or backyard sale.  It was for a video game.  That's right -- a video game ... one that was cancelled just three months short of its intended release date, then binned and almost forgotten while a new version of that game was crafted on top of the unfinished data of the old.

This is the story of the decade-and-a-half long hunt by a dedicated group of fans to find that cancelled version of that original video game.  It is also the story of how one incomplete build was found, and how that same dedicated group of fans decided to do their best and pool their collective talents into completing that game as its programmers originally intended.  Finally, it is also the story of how that effort went awry, and was turned into making the game into a fan-hacked verison of something that it never was, and was never going to be -- and how ANOTHER group of fans, sometimes working without knowledge of each other's actions, had to take action in order to ensure that the REAL game was finally released to the general public.

That game was Capcom's Resident Evil 1.5.  THIS is its story ....

2013 mystery RE1.5 eBay buyer revealed ... at last
Hello, folks!  It's been five years to the day that the incredible chain of events started that led to the RE1.5 PVB being leaked by EvilMarshy and the Mortician, so all of you could experience the REAL game for yourselves.  It was my copy that they leaked, although they did it without either my permission or my blessing ... but that was five years ago, and this is now.  With the impending commercial publication of my new book on the game, The Hunt for Resident Evil 1.5, the time has come for me to go public.  I'm revealing my true identity today in an effort to show you how honest I have tried to be in writing this book, and telling you just about everything I know or have found out concerning the legend that surrounds this game.  But enough!  It's time for the official press release.  You can read it below, or you can download it at the provided link and re-post it wherever you like.  Yo

The Hunt for Resident Evil 1.5 - printing errors
I must regretfully inform readers of my book The Hunt for Resident Evil 1.5 that despite the best efforts of both myself and my publisher, a small number of errors from both the review and page layout processes have somehow made it into the final printed retail text.  It is far too late in the game to fix this without delaying the book any further, and none of them are serious enough to affect the book as a whole.  Even so, I want to be honest about this situation.  That is why I am going to try to document as many of these as I can for you, so you will understand what I meant to say as to the way the printed text actually reads.
None of these errors I am documenting in the printed text of the book affect anything I have written or have to say about either "the Team" or its individual members in the second half of the book (Part 2: The Release).  I still stand by everything I wrote about them, their actions, and their beha
