Earlier this year, I Kickstarted the NESMaker project.
NESmaker is a software tool for creating brand new, hardware playable, cartridge based games for the Nintendo Entertainment System…without having to write a single line of code.
And things seem to be rolling along nicely for the project. Late last week I received my project key, so I have been able to visit the NES maker web site, download the tool, and start working. Sadly, I have no clue what I’m doing. But tutorials are coming soon, and I’m confident that eventually I’ll be able to work with this to make my own NES games. And since I pledged at the Toolkit level, I’ll even be getting a flashable cartridge and flasher so that if I ever do create something, I can play it on a real NES instead of just in an emulator.
And, if I ever do create something, you can bet I’ll post it here on GamerDemos.com as well as sharing it on NESmakers and on my social media accounts. So here’s hoping I come up with something clever enough to share and unchallenging enough that I can create it myself given my limited developer skills.
