Hello, this is my first ever post on this site. I mostly created an account here just to make this topic. So, i'm a huge fan of a show that I don't know how many people here like, but i'm sure most of you have heard about it at least once. It's called Total Drama. Back in 2009,2010,2011 and early 2012, the show used to have a fun game called "Best. Game. Ever." on the american Cartoon Network's website. In May of 2012, Cartoon Network removed the game from their website, and the game has been lost media ever since. If anyone here has any copy of it, or knows how to get a copy of it, that would be really cool and would help the Total Drama fandom a lot.
There are other lost Total Drama related things, such as an exclusive clip of Total Drama Island (season 1) where Izzy tells a scary story to the campers, and another exclusive clip of Total Drama Pahkitew Island (season 6) where Chris talks about the cast (this clip was actually available on the internet in Italian, however it has been removed since then and nobody saved it). I'm sure these 2 clips are never going to be found, however, I have some hope that at least the "Best Game Ever" game will be found, since it used to be pretty popular when it was still available.
Just like Big Fat Awesome House Party, the MOST you'd be able to find online is sprites. Even if someone had the game cache'd on an older machine, I don't think you could extract anything from it.
How come nobody ever saves these big games that used to be popular?
The kids that played it never thought about it.
If this game has any sort of online requirement like I think it does, the files are salted between different servers that don't exist anymore. These kinds of games have checks and balances between each server.
I tried to see if using the Internet Archive's Wayback Machine site would work and I managed to get to the page for the game itself but it says to install Flash (even though I already have Flash installed and there is no option to enable it in chrome. It may be because it needs Macromedia Flash and not Adobe Flash since it links to the Macromedia.com site, but I don't wan't risk downloading an older version of flash on my Windows 10 PC. I might try to see if it would work on a Windows XP VM)
Edit: After installing an older version of Flash on a windows XP VM, Nothing has changed except that the message to install Flash has dissapeared. It doesn't seem to work with other browsers either (I tested with Opera, also with Flash installed), so it is probably gone

I'll have to look into this deeper when I get the chance. Interestingly enough, I recently found some old 6teen games. They're no longer available on the original Teletoon or Cartoon Network sites, but I have managed to find them on various third party flash game sites, just like I remember them from back in the day.
