I was thinking I should do some writing on the wiki and decided to look up one of my old obscure games from the past. I basically covered my eyes and picked one at random and it happened to be an old windows 95 game called Tigershark.

I booted up the game and played around with it for a while to have something to write in the wiki, and then i decided to look inside the actual disc.

I found there was a hidden folder in there called GALLERY, I opened it and found 50 seemingly random pictures of what looks like families being on vacation. The last picture of them all was some weird asian guy with a flashy background.

I felt like I just had to let it out there.

This image was in the game's retail disc, no joke.

Edit: The game has wicked soundtrack too... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5VhgM4gT8no (new bombcast intro?).

Edit2: Rest of the pictures -> http://imageshack.us/g/33/44553543.png/ (excluding the 4 pictures below).

Edit3: This should clear up some of the questions:

@W0lfbl1tzers said:

@david1890:
On the image of the Asian man with the sword "That is Hiroshi Kataoka of SEGA, our Producer on Desert Tank, the arcade game we did at Lockheed Martin before starting n-Space. He is now President of SEGA's fabled AM2 group - the boss of their arcade games. He was Yu Suzuki's protege and replaced him."

On the other pictures "The other images are a random assortment of photos of the team and families at the time. Good memories from long ago." From Dan O'Leary, President and Founder of n-space.

Thanks W0lfbl1tzers!

@SamFo: I have to convert them to PNG in order to upload them but here is a taste of the first 4 images.

Damn, they're so random it even weirds me out to do this.

I get the feeling that Tigershark was made by some pretty awesome people.

Uploading them on imageshack now just to be able to share them.

edit: http://imageshack.us/g/33/44553543.png/

edit2: I'd like to once again say, yes, these were all taken from the disc... Also, they were in this order.

Years ago. Win98 era. I got a loan of a turn based civilisation/alpha centauria type game. Called Deadlock. A Great game i play ieven to this day....it still the same loaned copy from my friend.

My dad explored the disc and found this awsome song. Sing it every so often.

What the... 
Is anyone else tempted to pull out loads of old PC games and see if there's any secret creeper files in them?

Probably had to edit that image as it features Winnie the Pooh which could potentially get them in trouble copyright wise.

@craigbo180: Ah, that makes some sense. Though that would pretty much confirm that those pics were put there intentionally, and then the whole thing makes less sense. It's much easier to accept that it was some weird accident.

Are you sure none of those photos are used in the actual game? Like some sort of bizarre reality thing? Don't know anything about it myself.

Other than that possibility, I guess this is just some family album that got accidentally dumped onto the master disc. Pretty funny!

This is hysterical and truly a great find.

I hope a mod comes in here and moves this thread over to the Tigershark forum though that way it is always tied to the Wiki page (and you should definitely make note of this somewhere on the page itself).

@RobertOrri: I can't say I'm a 100% certain, but I don't remember seeing them when I was a kid, and I think I played through the whole thing then, and there's nothing hinting about any reality business when I start it up right now.

Also, I have a hard time placing pictures of cats and babies in a game where you play as a bomber submarine shooting missiles at targets :).

Oh and whats with the asian, ninja, sensei, sword-in-the-background guy?! The developers (n-space) are americans for the record.

They're probably just used in the game somewhere. Photos of some dude's family or something, on a desk/locker/whatever.
 
Also you'll probably need one other person with a Tigershark disc to confirm this.

@gladspooky: You're totally right, as for now you only have my word that these pictures were on the disc and, I'm telling you, having played the game, the chance of them being used in the game is slim.

Edit: I hereby request anyone else with the Tigershark retail disc to confirm!

@eroticfishcake: Hey thanks a bunch!

Also, I played through about half of the game just now, and used a cheat to watch all the FMV cinematics in the game, and didn't see any sign of neither of the pictures.
