    Hello Guys,
    I´ve got a question. Is someone out there who will make I Wanna Be The Guy for Homebrew? I love that game and it´s 8 Bit, so there aren´t really performance issues are they?

    Well, I was thinking about coding IWBTG clone game, but I think it's harder for me. Maybe I'll try when I finish my current game.

    It's not 8-bit. The game is made with Multimedia Fusion 2, which is a closed-source game-making program that uses DirectX so it can only be played natively on Windows. Your only option would be to rebuild the game from the ground up as a port is impossible, but this means creating an engine from scratch including collision, physics, music and sound effects and whatnot, and at that point you'd be better off just making your own game instead of porting another one.

    In conclusion, it's possible in the same way coding a Nintendo 64 emulator for the 3DS is possible. You *could* do it if you so desired and had the necessary skills, but the results will probably not be worth the massive amount of effort needed to complete the project.

    Maybe porting it from the source code would be the best route to do this.

    That's just the project file though. The engine itself is MMF2, which is closed source and as such is not portable to other platforms.

    Its name is "2DS - 2 Dumbs Shooting", a minimalistic Western game for 1 or 2 players. It's written with lpp-3ds. Coming soon more info. I have a git of the project, but I've decided to share it when I have the first release ready.

    Hahaha yes! But I'm a bit noob of lua, and more of lpp3ds. I used to code in OneLua, luadev, and love2d, and this new api is confusing me @-@ I'll do my best
