When I was in high school, one of the unexpected highlights was that I had to get a fancy calculator for some of my classes.

One cool example is this project by Eiyeron to put together a MOTHER 3-like engine on ...Read More »

About a week and a half ago the guys at Fangamer were like, “Hey, Valentine’s Day is coming up. We should do a podcast about love sims.” And then the discussion turned to, “Hey, we should make our own love sim.” And then I was like, “Hey, I know how to program games.” And after a few days of hard work by lots of folks, the game is complete! Behold: Sweet ...Read More »

A few days ago I posted about how the Ultimate Chimera Hunt game mode for Garry’s Mod was back in action (see hee). Now that it’s back up and running it’s gained a lot of attention, especially thanks to some popular YouTube players.

I recently ran across a fan-made MOTHER 2-themed typing game called something like “Gyiyg’ Strikes Back Again”, check it out here! The story is that after Ness defeated Giygas, Giygas’ spirit still remained. Since Giygas was o...Read More »

8bitsandwich recently sent this in: Hi there! I’d like to share a project of mine I just recently completed.

But take a look at the screenshots I’ve included. It’s not a direct recreation ...Read More »

It’s interesting how for the past many years EarthBound fans have been clamoring to remake EarthBound Zero using various different tools. The latest attempt is by AcePsycho, who’s used Game Maker Lite to re-create the intro from the game: AcePsycho adds: This is an Earthbound Zero remake that I attempted. This is only the intro, but if I get enough views on my video, then I will conti...Read More »

Saturn Valley Online has been around for quite a while now – if you haven’t heard of it before, check out the site here. Anyway, Skye, the head of the project, recently sent me this: You remember Saturn Valley Online I assume. I wonder if you could do a shoutout to the EB community that we’re urgently looking for a second C# programmer. Darkfrost is currently doing all the codin...Read More »
