Homebrews, Hacks, Reproductions, and Translations for the Nintendo Gaming Systems
Featuring Ferris Bueller, aka Christian A. Deitering, from NintendoAge!
Did you know that there were games made for the NES, SNES, Virtual Boy, and Gameboys that came out after Nintendo had moved on to the newer systems? You’re reading that right! And no, I’m not talking about Tengen or Color Dreams! A small group of dedicated Nintendo fans have spent the last fifteen years growing a community of artists, coders, and dreamers who spend their spare time making new games for old systems!
Hosted by Ferris Bueller on NintendoAge, this panel will take you through the history of homebrews, hacks, reproductions, and translated games, discussing milestones along the way and the developers and companies that made them, many of which have already come and gone.
If you like to geek out on gaming, you don’t get much nerdier than this niche that most people are only just now finding out about!
