Community Spotlight: Pikmin Archives

Who are they?

Pikmin Archives is a group dedicated to collecting developer notes and promossional material on the Pikmin series of games.

What do they do?

The Pikmin series are RTS games where players must guide a swarm of aliens to thrive in the wild! The Pikmin games are very memorable for their unique artstyle contrasting everyday objects over sci-fi technology and fantastical nature. Celebrating that artstyle, Pikmin Archives is focussed on documenting the creative process behind the Pikmin games.

For example, Pikmin Archive member Flamsey restored the old Pikmin 2 USA website which had ceased to function due the discontinuation of Flash Player.

How do they do it?

Pikmin Archives is most active on their Discord server which is a hub for exchanging files and fostering discussion. There, a dedicated #archive-submissions channel is used to submit media and submissions are then curated by the mod team.

Occasionally, members might post their findings to Twitter; but there is no dedicated Pikmin Archives social media account or website at this time.

How do I sign up?

Just hop on board their Discord Server!
