    Making documentation for Nintendo Switch Homebrew.

    Hey everyone! I'm currently working on making documentation for certain Nintendo Switch homebrew such as NXDumpTool and Love Potion. I'm mainly doing this as there's no detailed documentation on some homebrew that I use, and I feel like people who are new to using some tools may get confused on how to use them. The documentation will be at https://github.com/kiiwiibiirb/Nintendo-Homebrew-Docs/ I didn't know exactly where I should put it so I just made it into a repo with every doc being a markdown file. I hope you guys enjoy it!

    New Project

    Hey everyone! It's been a long time since my first blog post (5 months oof) but I'm gonna try to keep this regularly updated. I was thinking about what blogging platform to use for now and was debating on either making one on github or here and I really didn't want to mess with github pages, so I'm gonna post here!

    Now for the stuff I actually want to talk about... I'm working on a game for the Nintendo Switch! I know my last post was on the 3ds, but in December I got my hands on a Switch for trading my 3ds and $100, which is a great deal as my friend didn't know that it was hackable! So with that, I've been tinkering with this homebrew that allows you to make games in godot and export them to the Switch! With this, I made my first game and stopped working on it due to lack of motivation and with how large of a scope it was for someone new like me. But I plan on making a new game called Some.Game (Don't ask me why I named it this). It's a shorter game where you just have to solve how to get to the next level. All the levels are on a static screen and uses very basic sprites to indicate what's what. I have the github repo set to private right now until I have the first pre-release ready. I really hope you guys see some fun in it :)

    Learning how to Homebrew

    Hi all! My name's Kiwi and this is my first post. I want to make it something special, so I'll say that I'm wanting to make a game for the 3ds! Since I don't know how to make a game for the 3ds that means I'm gonna have to learn how to code! I found this language called LovePotion (It can be found here: https://github.com/TurtleP/LovePotion) and it seems fairly noob-friendly lol! I didn't want to jump head first into learning C/C++ since I feel like that would take ages to learn, since I'm busy with school and a personal project of mine (which I may show off, idk). I'm hoping I can one day have my dream game on the 3ds, when I do I'll be sure to make a post about it!
