    This sounds like a lot of fun! It looks like it's time to test my coding skills!

    Game Category as the last one is a good idea, maybe the frameworks / libs (i am looking at you OpenGL / Vulkan) will be more mature to use.
    Also: Do we have full Joycon compatibility including Gyro Sensors? I have a realy good Idea for a Homebrew game but i would need to have full Gyro Controll and native 3D support and up until now I did not have much interest to go for it (my real life job takes a huge amount of time atm).

    We don't have gyro support yet as far as I know. I think that rumble is bugged as well.

    I have a question regarding the competition: is more than one entry per user allowed? Can one user commit more than one entry per category?

    good question.
    I think there shouldn’t be a limit of entries, if you can contribute with many entries then it’s all the best for Switch users who will get more homebrew.
    However it takes time to produce quality project so I doubt it will end up being a big issue.
    And judges may not want to vote for the same author twice.

    Well, I think I'll take part on this Bounty :D
    Probably our VOEZ Custom Song Creator will be a good software for this:

    Giving a good donation to this bounty is a very good thing that adds to the Switch scene. Hopefully more homebrew will be available because of this. Every donation is welcome to the scene!

    edit:
    @Costello Will there be an option to donate as a regular user to make the amount of money even higher?

    You should mention that $8000 prize purse a little more prominently.
    Would really catch more eyes. :ninja:

    it's written at the bottom of the message, users, and even non-GBATemp users, can donate globally or to specific categories.


    I'd be interested in participating and making a game, but I don't think I'll have enough free time or knowledge to make what I want in time. I know, 4 months is enough time to do something, but I'm not sure to be ready. At worse, I'll release a game another time, not expecting any prize. Being staff, not sure I can participate. But as long as I don't vote for myself it should be acceptable, right?


    Maybe we should have a mini guide to setup a development environment? I don't know if all people who want to create homebrew already have the necessary tools, nor have even hacked their switch yet.
    I'd say a guide to explain that they first need to make a NAND backup, explain to stay offline to prevent any ban, restore nand after that could be useful. Not wanting to prevent homebrew from using online, just setup a proper network URL blocking guide. then explain how to install devkitpro and libraries, and compile. I'm particularly interested in knowing how to get 2 devkitpro at the same time (32bit/wii, 64bit/switch) without conflicting. I know there are already different guides (reinx, sdfile guide, even switchbrew) but none is covering what I think is important, many information are in each, but not everything in a single one. Most guides cover their own installation, but there's no guide to explain what to choose and what their differences.

    Very surprised at the prize pool that's awesome and will definitely pull in some support. Can't wait to see the results. Good luck everyone!

    ooh, maybe a gc emulator could come out of this....though I'm not sure if a dolphin port would count :/

    I finally joined this site after seeing all the great homebrew released in the first bounty, And finally here I am as a professional coder - keen to give back a little of what was given to me over many years on this site. Thanks for running this event again, sometimes I feel like this site is getting lame, but this is absolutely the opposite. GBA 4temporary!

    Are you sure that you can't do both with the 64 bit version?
