    Kidspaint, the Wii painting program made by Uffe Flarup and Nicklas Schmidt, has recently been updated to version 2.0.1. This homebrew has been picked up as an official Wiiware title, under the name Paint Splash, that should be available in the near future. More information can be found at the project page linked below.

    So Nintendo has been all against this homebrew and hacking and stuff that enable people to make stuff like this, and now they're actually going to sell it in the Wii Shop?

    ...interesting...

    This is certainly not the first incident of a big-name company hiring homebrew developers. The coder for the DS Genesis emulator was hired by Sega to make Sonic Classic Collection.

    Jellycar also started as a homebrew, and made it to official Wiiware as Jellycar2.

    So why don't they at least give people like the person who developed this a chance to make an app without NIntendo being in their faces trying to STOP them by blocking HBC and "unauthorized software?" O-o

    If the world were a nice place and retards didn't feel the urge to PIRATE shit, then they probably wouldn't NEED to try doing that sort of stuff. Also, they were probably seeked out by Nintendo (ok so maybe not, but I'd like to think that) because their homebrew had potential, it's not like Nintendo just upright says "NO, because you is a hacking scum".

    The most awesome part of this news is the fact, that a fellow homebrew developer made it to an official dev. Do you guys know any other WiiWare that has started as homebrew apps?

    I don't know if Cave Story counts since it was a PC game, not Wii HB.
