    Homebrew News
    [​IMG]

    Jayenkai, the homebrew author behind JNKPlat for the NDS, has just capped off a full year of “a game a week.com.” He literally released 1 game per week for the entire year. While game play remains quick many of the games are extremely fun to play and worth a look. For more information and a wrap up of the year check the link below.

    Congratulations Jay, here is a Guinness in celebration of next year’s games.

    Good to see some interest for a change!
    I must admit, after having gotten through a whole year of it without barely any interest at all, I was starting to have my doubts as to whether or not it'd been worth it.

    But, hey, looky! Peeps!

    Good stuff.

    (Although, I was a bit disappointed that this month's RetroGamer [#67] has my latest Microbes game in there [page 100!], but DOESN'T mention the whole AGameAWeek thing! WTF is that about!?)

    So, yeah. I kinda left my DS projects to rot a bit, last year. I'll try to focus a bit more on them, this year, I think. As you could probably guess, though, it's a little hard trying to do stuff within a week! Crazy, but fun!

    Wow, you need some better PR. I knew about JNK Plat but this is the first time I've seen your agameaweek.com website and I check many homebrew/coding news sites every day. Anyway, well done!

    Is there a page that lists all games? They seemed split up on the site. It would look more impressive if you had an easy to find long list.

    It's in the works, but as you could probably imagine, there's a WHOLE lot of stuff to go up.
    I'm not just posting the AGameAWeek stuff, either.
    I'm aiming for Everything!!
    And, That's a lot!

    I'll let you know when the archive's ready.
