Status Existence Unconfirmed

Funbrain was an educational website aimed towards children, created in 1998. The website featured a number of games to play, but in 2005, introduced to Fun Arcade. This arcade contained 25 mini-games in which you would move a game piece along a board game as you played mini-games to progress. Upon landing on a space, the player was required to beat the mini-game to progress down the board. Completing a mini-game rewards the player with a password to return to that space on the board.[1]

However, once reaching game #13, Croc Hopper, the arcade machine read, "Coming Soon", implying that the rest would be finished later. The second half of the board was never updated and it remained that way for 11 years until Funbrain's redesign replacing the fun arcade with new games. While the first half of the fun arcade is accessible via the Wayback Machine, the second half of the board remains incomplete and is unknown if the board was ever completed beyond Mighty Guy 2.

1 paragraph =/= an article if the image is scarce

Also if there is an archive of the website, how is it "Existence Unconfirmed"

The part that is unconfirmed is the second half of the board as it was never updated so no one knows if any games there we made.

Okay, if this article does get deleted, I'll tell the admins to delete the existing redirect before it.

Just so I want you to know

If an article is newly made and looks like shit, don't redirect the title because the mods get annoyed when I do it, so I don't want the same thing happen to you as well

I remember playing the Funbrain arcade a lot as a kid. My favorite game in the arcade was Might Guy.

I totally remember getting to the end of the board game multiple times and always being disappointed it was never finished! This was a total blast from the past that I had almost completely forgotten until now. Sad to hear the Fun Arcade isn't around anymore

I remember playing the games on Funbrain a long time ago. It's a shame that the second half of the Fun Arcade was never finished.

The second half of funbrain did exist, and is confirmed to have been real, so the status should be changed to lost.
