    Congratulations to all the authors, picking games was particularly difficult considering all the amazing entries!

    I have an announcement to make regarding future bounties. I have been discussing with other major scene website owners and we have decided to make some important improvements to the Homebrew Bounty!
    • The Homebrew Bounty will now take place once every 3 months (making it a quarterly event), giving homebrew developers a lot more time to come up with better games!
    • The prizes will be distributed in a completely different fashion, allowing for more authors to be rewarded.
    • The Homebrew Bounty will have its own site, separated from GBAtemp. A new Paypal account for collecting donations will also be set up (english account this time! *wink*).
    • The event will be given a new name! It will be revealed in the coming weeks when the bounty starts.
    We hope you enjoyed following this competition as much as I did!
    Stay tuned for the next bounty!

    you have got to be kidding [​IMG]
    but yeah, great entries this month.

    Surprisingly, the game I find myself playing most is Maouss DS.
    I love that game! I've played through the first 25 levels yesterday, couldn't stop playing!

    Next time, I will make a MAJOR UPDATE to the game, with a choice of sleek modern graphics or console-like graphics, and various difficulty levels. Maybe even a story mode! [​IMG]

    Then we will see who is the winner. [​IMG]

    I don't know what to say ... I hopped that I'd be in the top 5 while entering the bounty but 1st is a dream coming true. I'm happy that all these months coding StillAliveDS are rewarded like this.
    Congrats to sumiguchi for its fantastic game (and good luck in the neocompo [​IMG])

    Thanks to all the people enjoying my game, to the community creating skins and maps, to dev-fr.org for supporting me since a long time even with my first shitty games, to my girlfriend for staying with a g33k like me.

    I love you all [​IMG]

    Congrats Costello on a great comp, any comp for the Homebrew community is always a great event and getting backing of multi national sites is great too, i speak for the rest of the staff at DCEmu and say we support 100% these comps (i dont do comps, too much bloody hassle [​IMG])

    Congrats to all winners [​IMG]

    By the way: Nentindo no longer exists as the domain name nentindo.nl is being claimed by Nintendo as we speak [​IMG] The site continues under the name nBrew and offcourse wont quit supporting the bounty. This nickname will change soon to nBrew. That explains the quickly made nBrew logo in the message instead of the Nentindo logo.

    The homebrew Bounty is a great idea. And since the site is pretty popular and has been around for such a long time allowing more people the chance to win some cash by doing something they might have done with out a prize and giving them more reason to push through and not drop the project and making an over all better product.

    I knew that the winner would be a game I've never even heard about (much less played). Ah well, congrats to all the winners.
    Now it's time to try out this Portal game.
