    Planet Virtual Boy has just announced their 3rd retro coding competition for the Nintendo Virtual Boy. The competition will run from September 1st until December 31st, 2013. The lucky winner's software will see a complete-in-box physical cartridge release.

    There exists on the Internet a vast amount of Virtual Boy related information. The hardware has been well documented. A software development library exists, complete with tutorials and code examples. While more than a few emulators can be utilized for homebrew development. Everything is in place for developers to jump in and get to coding.

    The past 2 years have been extremely kind to the Virtual Boy. A collection of complete-in-box reproduction cartridges and prototype releases have been made available. A few great homebrew projects have been released, while others have been discussed and coded. Hopefully this momentum can push this competition into new realms of Virtual Boy projects, concepts, games, and applications.
