''40 Winks'' was a platformer game developed by EuroCom for the PlayStation in 1999. While the game received mixed reviews, development on a Nintendo 64 port began and was set for a 2000 release date.
The Nintendo 64 port of ''40 Winks'' was very far into development having received a review from the Official. Nintendo Magazine. In late 1999, the publishers began debating whether or not they should release the game for the Nintendo 64, with IGN calling its future "uncertain."<ref>[http://uk.ign.com/articles/1999/12/17/40-winks-future-uncertain An IGN article describing the uncertain future of the Nintendo 64 port.] Retrieved 27 May '15</ref> Ultimately, they decided against it, and the port went unreleased.
The English, Spanish and Italian prototypes were released on a popular ROM-hosting website, and it can be discovered through a simple Google search. It is currently unknown why the game was canceled.
==A Troubled Development==
As mixed reviews came in for ''40 Winks'', the parent company GT Interactive was starting to be affected by the commercial failure of ''40 Winks'' on the PlayStation. In order to stay afloat, GT Interactive started to sell off assets and downsize the development team working on the Nintendo 64 port. Despite all of these efforts, the port was canceled in 2000.
==Offical release by Piko Interactive==
On February 12, 2018, Piko Interactive launched a Kickstarter to officially release ''40 Winks'' on the Nintendo 64. The Kickstarter reached enough backers to meet the deadline and get ''40 Winks'' released on the Nintendo 64, Microsoft Windows, and Steam in November of 2018.<ref>[https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/retrogames/40-winks-a-new-nintendo-64-game The Kickstarter page for ''40 Winks''] Retrieved 18 Mar '19</ref>
