    There was a previous thread for this but it was lost in time (for some reason).

    I want to do some homebrew development work but I have no idea on what to create, and I want some "easy project ideas" that I could do in a few days. Try to be serious, I want ideas, not memes (even bad ones).

    I usually recommend doing a picking sticks + dodge this type of game. It's very easy to get started and very flexible making it easy to expand.
    Just to clarify, it's a game where you pick-up randomly placed "points" while dodging enemies.

    DosBox is still under way, but I have another one working for the time being. The javascript petit Computer (codename: "Brewery") is at a barebones stage, it works but I'm implementing 3D engine to counter the performance issues with many draw calls. And I also started a new project: "IndieBrew.io". It's not a homebrew but various tutorials ranging from basic programming to 3d game development.

    That's awesome dude, there's close to no tutorials pertaining to homebrew, the only one is terribly outdated and has no information.

    agree and a tutorial on 3d games would be awsome

    I couldn't see that happening because homebrew applications aren't titles like Pokemon X, it's just unsigned code.

    I'd assume there's a way to just set an input smdh file into, say, extdata or however it's handled.

    What about the other request?

    I'll look into it, I haven't looked into lovepotion much and I don't know how complete their implementation is (I've heard of difficulties trying to port stabyourself's games to 3ds). After I get done with my file manager, I can try if someone didn't beat me to it.

    I've also gotten the interpreter running on the 3DS. The problem is not getting the interpreter running, but what you implement.

    Follow up, I tried to but love potion is not nearly mature yet for it. It doesn't have access to the filesystem and only got recent audio support (and only plays .wav files). So it's a lost cause until it's developed more.
