Re: 2019 NESDev Compo RESULTS

Regarding paper products, INL does those in house, and the files have long been supplied, so that shouldn't be a hold up.

Any chance of a quadrilogy Box Set for us newcomers??? :mrgreen:
Vol. 4 actually has a number of updates/reissues from some earlier volumes. I should have its itch page up soonish. Meanwhile, check out the first three volumes at action53.itch.io if you haven't come across them yet.

Re: Honest box art

I addressed this briefly in my Project Blue interview for VGS . ... the world being depicted is much larger than as seen through the lens of the gameplay screen, which very well might be only one of many abstracted interpretations of it. I wasn't quite thinking about thematic interpretations of pure...

Re: Late 1980s / Early 1990s Memphis Style in NES Games

That Action Replay case is dead-on. I didn't learn that this aesthetic was named after the Memphis design group until researching for a53. Previously I had just called it the Saved by the Bell look. On that note, https://partytimehexcellent.itch.io/electronic-sweet-n-fun-fortune-teller hits some fam...

I used it for the Action 53 Vol. 3 packaging design, and Broke Studios uses it in their webdesign and branding.

Re: FROM BELOW (Tetris-like) [WIP NES Homebrew]

Already praised the game via PM, but I love the visuals, both in-game and for the cover illustration. Hate to see such a great name as What's Kraken? get dropped though. :) (Also, when I hear a Tetris clone is called From Below, I immediately expect the blocks to drop upward, from below, like in cer...

Re: Official NES Homebrew Seal of Quality

I've previously expressed my thoughts on seals like these (and other forms of imitation such as imitating box layout, company logos, etc.): https://twitter.com/mteegfx/status/1179874032633516032 Basically, from the early days of hobbyist/aftermarket NES ventures, there's been a transition that's fol...

Re: Minecraft Clone on the NES

Could something like Broke Studios' wifi adapter be used to store the data server side?

Now that screenshots can be more colorful, wouldn't this be a good time to improve the graphics of the television set itself? Maybe something like this:

Apparently I never commented on this. Always thought I had. Better late than never, that TV looks good. :)

Re: Gruniożerca 3 - The Great Cavy Clean-Up!

About a year after we updated the ROM, I finally found time to flesh out the manual and get everything ready for a proper itch page:

Re: SaveTheKuin: action-adventure

That would help a lot. It's exactly how I expected it to work actually. I actually really like the grid-based movement, btw. Honestly, not very far. I started a few very quick, casual plays. Went in the castle once, the inns once, to the left once and to the right twice. (In the exact opposite order...

Re: SaveTheKuin: action-adventure

Is there a way to change facing direction without moving?
