    A update posted by DbGt

    Robert Pelloni, creator of the sedate-looking RPG Bob's Game, has resorted to desperate measures in order to secure his game an official release. If you've been following the story elsewhere, you know that he's in the midst of a self-imposed confinement, locked in an office until Nintendo agrees to sell him the DS software development kit.

    Now, on day 21 of his protest, Pelloni has discovered a previously unknown, even deeper end off of which to go. After calling out the Nintendo executives he's spoken to, who are apparently holding back his approval as a developer, Pelloni has threatened to bundle Bob's Game with a DSi flash cart if not given the opportunity to develop it as an official DS game. He claims it would be the first "killer app" for a homebrew device, and could "significantly cut into Nintendo's bottom line."

    We aren't sure if Pelloni ever catches DS Fanboy posts from within his secret fortress, since he claims to have no Internet access other than email from his phone, but if he is, we would like to suggest that he stop doing this kind of stuff, get out of the office, and either continue contacting Nintendo or just go somewhere else. We suspect that the more public he is with this stuff, the less likely Nintendo is to want anything to do with him -- especially if he's talking about flash carts.

    Yeah, gotta agree. He says he wants to be professional but acts like a kid throwing a tantrum in the back of his car cos his folks won't stop at the McD's they just drove past. And then threatening to release it bundled with a flashcart and that it will "hurt Nintendo's profits", what a dumbass. They're no denying he's put some dedication into the development and he's got some talent but by the looks of it his ego is a hell of alot bigger then his skill.

    I still support Mr. Bob even though he's a nutcase.

    EDIT: hmmm, his website has changed.

    Uh, Bob, what hell is he thinking? It's possible he could go to jail with these threats. Ah well, whatever the case, hope things don't take a turn for the worse.



    Edit: It looks like his website got hacked or something 0.o

    this is what im hoping he'll do :
    first he makes copies of this game, then buy some flashcarts, then bundles them together but then no one buys and he wastes all his money [​IMG]

    Why are all ofyou so harsh?
    You have obviously not seen his great game.
    Yes, i know he is acting like a retard.
    Bob, dude, just ask nicely, give them a demo or something, contact publishers or something. Don't be an idiot.
    I have seen your project a long time ago, its awesome. Just like, chill.
    Threatning nintendo with flashcarts is not smart.
    I want to see this game become real.

    imo,
    his trailer was about people who didnt have names save for the main charcter. his vid was mostly about those characters intro "the ___ who _______". his gameplay which was rather short showed NOTHING except walking walking walking, and guess? yes MORE walking. he takes his vids of himself without clothes. way to go for a first impression, huh. He basically acts like a kid, holding himself hostage like if nintendo's not going to agree he's gonna sit there for a hundred days, if his "friends" who havent left him yet hadnt sent him food im sure he would already be dead. hes like those children who throw tantrums until their parents buy them a toy, or gets his way.

    To me the game looks decent for a homebrew, but NOT for a "official" ds game.

    I somewhat have to agree, but even his game looks better than most official games.

    But seriously. For your sake, I hope you do get thrown in jail. You're already setting yourself up for it. Big baby. [​IMG] Waaaah, I spent five years making a game and no one wants to publish it! Make an iPhone demo and shut up.

    While the trailer showed some potential, it also didn't show anything other than walking and talking to people. Is there even any fighting in this game? :wtf:

    The game runs along the lines of Animal Crossing + Sims in gameplay it seems. It actually does look worthy of a commercial release but doing it this way does seem pretty stupid. His engine can be excepted by some company and built into a game that way, but it seems he wants all the glory. Well, I do want to see some kind of release so I hope he comes to his senses or Big N caves in (highly unlikely). Also it seems this latest stunt is some hacker causes a mess. If not and he just went crazy from his confinement, then GG Bob. He will never succeed this way.

    Pardon my French, but big...fucking...surprise! Why it took this revelation to convince anyone that his idea was a poor tact to take in trying to convince Nintendo of anything -- well, it's beyond me. Bad move on his part, and unfortunately, he seems insistent on following this through to some utterly absurd end. Now, that's a fucking waste of five years. [​IMG]

    What he should have done -- and this is, of course, only my opinion -- is released the game to the world as a downloadable piece of homebrew software, and then he should have gotten on his hands and knees to thank the Lord for giving him the opportunity to invest his time learning how to do something he loved doing. And then after that, start scoping the classifieds for a job.

    Well, in the end, he got what he wanted: publicity.
