In 2016 I had tepples, darryl.revok, and FL4SHK over for a day, and there was pizza, the debut of Quadruple Action Blaster Guys, some other Four Score games, and some other general video gaming. I kinda want to do that again, but with more people if there's interest? I've noticed there's at least several other nesdev people in the midwest US.

It'd probably be during a weekend in the summer, and in Fort Wayne, Indiana. I can serve homemade pizzas or get Little Caesars or something.

Activity plans/ideas:
  • Nova the Squirrel (hopefully) completed and playable
  • play homebrew games and show off yours
  • Four Score games
  • Bomberman (II, Mega, Party Edition, 64)
  • losing to me in Pok√©mon Puzzle League
  • four player Duck Game
  • anything else that sounds fun, especially retro-gaming related

"Guaranteed" attendance is FL4SHK (whose availability will determine when it can be) and tepples (who I can drag over from next door). Anyone else interested?

edit: To make it clear, this is a non-alcohol and non-smoking event. Be sober.

Homebrew that will appear at this year's con:

  • Haunted: Halloween '85
  • Haunted: Halloween '86 (The Curse of Possum Hollow)
  • Lizard
  • Eskimo Bob
  • All four volumes of Action 53

Homebrew that will not appear:

  • Anything alcoholic

This year, due to a slight change in living arrangements, we may have two rooms available.

Sounds like a lot of fun! I'd like to try to make it but we'll see what happens.

I can't make any promises, but I'd really like to come and I'll do what I can to make it over there. The sooner there's a set date the better, to avoid potential scheduling conflicts. I can bring my collection of homebrew oddities and prototypes. Sounds like fun. I can chip in some money for food and stuff.

Got a favorite Saturday in June you'd prefer? I feel like Saturday's probably the best weekend day since people are likely to be free the entire day, but aside from that I don't think either FL4SHK or I have any reason to prefer any over any other.

Since June is in a little over a month, we really should pick a definite Saturday for this.

Unless something comes up, the date for NovaCon is June 16th!

Please send me a PM if you intend to come, and I can give you the address, and know how many pizzas to get ingredients for.

Usually work Saturdays. Count me in as a maybe. Can bring over prototypes and oddities too. May bring over guitar and laptop. Maybe we can have NerdTracker and FamiTracker jam sessions.

Would be cool if we can talk kev and his manfriend in hanging out too.

I think there actually will be a few people who are into trackers there. I think Memblers was gonna try and talk kev into going too.

That's about 8 people total so far (and presumably 6 cars)? I think there's room for parking, both around my house and in a parking lot near the house.
