NEW KICKSTARTER WORTH CHECKING OUT
September 19th, 2014 - 3:59 pm - Posted by Martin 0 comments

Stop right here for a minute folks, there's finally a kickstarter project worth mentioning. Not only are we dealing with a documentary about creating an actual NES game, but backers will also have the option to purchase an actual cart.

The kickstarter is called "The New 8-bit Heroes: New NES game and creation documentary" and is being maintained by Joe Granato.

The pledge goal is set to $36000 and with 28 days to go there's $19000+ already pledged, so it looks like it won't be a problem finding funding for the project.

However you would like to watch a docu about an NES game in the making and then even get to play it, why not chip in?

The kickstarter page can be found here https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1316851183/the-new-8-bit-heroes-new-nes-game-and-creation-doc

NEW NES HOMEBREW - TIGER JENNY
June 9th, 2014 - 4:04 pm - Posted by Martin 0 comments

Actually this release is almost a month old, but I for some reason didn't notice it until today.

A couple of words from the maker...

Tiger Jenny is a new NES game by NES Jam that is set in the same universe as "Ittle Dew". It actually takes place a thousand years before the events of that game. You must battle your way through the forests to seek vengeance on the Turnip Witch who dwells in her castle. Note that this game actually runs on the real hardware, it's not just an imitation!

It's written in C and 6502 assembly using the Shiru libraries and the cc65 compiler. For the music he used Famitracker and the graphics were made in whatever the artists (@regnsloja and @professorsteamg) were comfortable with (photoshop, gimp and other pixel art programs I think), however they finally ended up in the NES Screen Tool also by Shiru. This is were the palettes were designed and the nametables (levels) as well!
