So it's kind of interesting to remember what led me to NesDev in the first place.
I have been following the TASVideos publications since 2008. I knew homebrew only a little bit since I bought a copy of Battle Kid: Fortress of Peril
but I was focused on learning PC programing at that time so I didn't look much into it. Then in 2013 The TASVideos run of Streemerz
was published. At first I was kind of confused about whatever or not Streemerz was an older game. It seemed to be related to action52 but the game quality was way beyond that infamous package. So a bit of link following and internet searching revealed that the Streemerz Bundle
was being sold. So I quickly got that, and then proceeded to binge read the NesDev forums.
I had once seen the existence of NesDev in 2000 where the only things I remembered was the NSF file format and 6502.txt, but the fact that another programing compo that led to physical cartridges was just around the corner of 2014 was the biggest factor that led to me signing up here.
