These randomizers have all of their major features in another randomizer listed above. They are included here for archival purposes.

What is this list?

The hacks, mods and utilities featured here randomizes or shuffles specific data in their respective video game(s), in a way that should not cause them to be unwinnable or introduce new potential softlocks, in order to significantly increase their replayability value.

In order to prevent the list from being polluted with entries that do not conform to the above, the following is not considered sufficient for inclusion:

  • Already included in original games and official ports, such as the unlockable Randomizer mode in the Nintendo 64 version of Resident Evil 2.
  • Work in progress with unreleased binaries or source code.
  • Cosmetic changes.
  • Adding random elements over the normal game instead of randomizing existing elements or generating new random sections.
  • Hacking or corrupting arbitrary binary data.
  • Generators that don't require game modifications.

If you ever notice a video game randomizer valid for inclusion that is not already listed, please contact me so I can add it!

Special thanks to everyone that shared or contributed to this list so far - I really appreciate it!

I want more!
