Of all the games ever made for Famicom / NES, few are as rare as those made for Konami's QTa adapter, a special accessory that allows Nintendo consoles to play cartridges made as part of a partnership with the publisher and the Japanese media giant NHK.
Only a few games were made including educational series made for schoolgirls, and another was for employees of an oil company . The idea was that learning could be dressed up as fun by creating a very sophisticated video game setup.
QTa games are rare because you need both a game and an adapter to use them, and both (especially the adapter) are difficult to see since they have never been made publicly available to the public.
These games were so rare that last week you couldn't see almost anything about them online. No videos, no detailed instructions, even a scan of their guides. Now, however, we have not only all of this, but also reproduced copies of many of the games, thanks to the efforts of Russian Geek who, with the help of his Patreon subscribers, was able to purchase and import both a game adapter and one cartridges – entry in the Space School series itself.
He details his discovery (and the process involved in getting him to play emulators) in this video below, while giving us a glimpse of the game in action (it's in Russian, but you can activate the correct English subtitles ).
It's especially great that buying an adapter from Russian Geek allows some other space school records serials, previously discarded but never played, are now compatible with emulators.
If you just want to see video footage of Space School in action – along with it very good soundtrack – here's a video of Frank Chifaldi compiled :
