Philips CD-i

The Philips CD-i is a multimedia CD player developed by Royal Philips Electronics and released in North America and Europe.

A Donkey Kong game was apparently in development for the system. His character was announced for an appearance in the console in a 1991 advert. The only known report of it is the LinkedIn resume of programmer Adrian Jackson-Jones, which states the game was in development during the 1992–1993 period at Riedel Software Productions. Jackson-Jones "designed and implemented the game engine" for the project. In an interview with Time Extension, Jackson-Jones stated that due to a memory disorder, he recalled little of the production process other than programming the game; however, he was able to confirm his involvement with it, stating that the game had to circumvent the CD-i's memory limitations by only loading in what would be visible on-screen based on the player's movement.
