Probably you've heard of Inkawar thanks to the Lost Media Wiki article, but this game caught my attention and I wanted to talk about it.
Inkawar is a real-time strategy game developed by Luis Grimaldo. It was created as an entry to ImagineCup in 2005 in Microsoft Visual Studio 2005 using Microsoft Visual C#. It ended up as a finalist in Rendering Category.
The demo was published in January 2007 on the game's official website, that is no longer working and thus, it is a lost media.
The demo is called The Inka Empire and it contained the maps:
*Training in the Forest
*The Lake of Muquies
*The Unsure Shore
*Ucjupacha - The World of Death
I've tried to find this game, no luck. But at least the gameplay video is still up.
Additionaly, the developer had many sites, which all are defunct. I would love to contact him about this game, but his YT account is inactive. He also ended up being hired in Pie. Here's the article regarding this:

That's a lotta links, I know, but I have a hope, that one day this game will be found.
