Help Preserve Mega Man History!
From Rockman Corner: If you've been visiting Rockman Corner for the last ten years or so, you've probably picked up on my passion for Mega Man history. Be it prototype games, rare footage or seldom-seen concept art, I love to collect and share this stuff with you guys. I can't name a single prototype I've "hoarded" to myself. Everything I have is yours. Mi casa, su casa.
So to keep the ball rolling, to ensure that pieces of Mega Man's history are preserved, documented and shared publicly, I've launched a Patreon. For literally a dollar or two, you can help me fund the acquisition of Mega Man prototypes, game design documents, concept artwork, lost media, and other odds-and-ends you've never seen before. I also want to translate videos, guidebooks, drama tracks, etc. into English for the first time, too.
