The July issue of Microsoft GitHub's "Game Bytes" blog is "How the Nintendo Entertainment System lives on in open source - Game Bytes" by Lee Reilly. Some already have topics on NESdev: Super Tilt Bro., Nova the Squirrel, and Thwaite. The other three I hadn't heard about:
- Pwn Adventure Z (repo): "is a zombie survival game made to be hacked. It was originally released as a physical cartridge at CSAW (Cyber Security Awareness Week), the largest student-run cyber security event in the world, for the 2015 CTF (Capture the Flag) competition."
- Falling (repo): "Not much is known about why our hero is 'Falling' from the sky, but they must collect as many coins as possible while avoiding all platforms. This was @tragicmuffin’s first time creating a game from scratch and working with Assembly."
- Sprilo (repo) "is a small, time-attack racing game. Test your ability to drive a tiny car around a track as fast as you can in over three unique courses. Created in less than 30 days for last year’s GitHub Game Off competition, this was @cbrwn’s first time creating a game using Assembly for any sort of console. It was created in less than 30 days for last year’s GitHub Game Off competition."
