Re: Are High SNES Homebrew Expectations Justified?

May I please get some sales figures? Here's the kickstarter for it. I'm sure he's made some sales afterwards as well. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1454702417/twin-dragons-a-brand-new-game-for-the-nes Note that there wasn't a rom option, so we don't know how that would have turned out. Okay,...

Re: Are High SNES Homebrew Expectations Justified?

I still can't believe people are still trying to sell their real SNES indie games to the collector market, especially if they sell the games exclusively as cartridges at prices that rival the less common SNES cartridges. They think they, one person bands, can compete with a game made almost 30 year...

If you can't do pixel art you have these options...
-hire an artist
-use free assets
-port an existing game
-use a minimalist style
Also: convince an artist to join you as a partner on the project.

But yeah, I've used all 4 of these at different times, and been happy with the results.

Re: Are High SNES Homebrew Expectations Justified?

I suppose probably is the SNES doesn't need homebrew, I'm not sure most homebrewers care what the system _needs_. They care about making the things that they want to make. NES doesn't need most of hte stuff that gets released by brewers (you could argue that there's a few gaps being filled by 4-pla...

Re: Are High SNES Homebrew Expectations Justified?

I've said this before every time this conversation comes up. I've never made SNES homebrew, so take that with a grain of salt, but I HAVE made homebrew games for a variety of systems (Atari 2600, NES, GBA, NDS, Dreamcast), so I think I have a little bit of perspective. That said, I think a few thing...

Re: Retro Game Builder (make your own snes games)

I'm very annoyed with both of you. Having this project fail is not good for me. RGB has been continually polite and reasonable. Your negativity is making the entire community look bad. Support it, don't support it, offer constructive advice, whatever. But don't sit here and blame him for doing the ...

And what you could possibly have to be angry about? Maybe I'm missing something here.
I have no idea what he's angry about either. I'm sorry you're getting so much negativity dumped on you here.

I just have to say, NESMaker was created by a basically nobody in the scene,
I don't know. Joe was relatively well known for his documentary and still-undelivered Kickstarted game.

Re: Starting a YouTube channel: where should I start?

Yeah, what's your goal here? You quickly jumped from "people would like to see video of these games" to "I need a Youtube presence" There's nothing wrong with just dumping some simple videos up there like Calima suggested, which is probably all that you need. Unless you just WANT to be a YouTuber. I...

Re: Zoomers (Metroid), how do they work?

I thought this was a good idea but what's happening is that when he moves off a ledge he's "floating" and keeps spinning for a bit and then starts moving through the air. I think the rotation concept is a good one I just can't get my head around the implementation. This sort of enemy behavior is su...

That's sad. I hope Sour is okay, and if he is, he better enjoy retirement from ruthless and thankless world of Open Source :). Yeah, he confirmed that he's ok, and just got tired and burned out from working on it. The real question will be: is there going to be a centralized fork in the future, so ...

Re: Unacceptably insensitive content in video games

Or is it "If you have a disability such that you need to ask, you shouldn't even be part of this community"? No, definitely not that. Mistakes are forgivable. The important part is being willing to apologize and take feedback if you get it wrong. If anyone gives you crap over something after you re...

The game actually grew a fair bit since I first made this post.
Added weapons and enemies for example.
I'll update this post soon for people who would like to see. :)
That's great to hear. The first chapter was really nice, I'd love to see more.
