    I'm surprised that nobody suggested to sell Digital Assets from making the Game as NFT Art, since they're already intent on going that NFT route.

    Guy made a cool Million drawing Digital Art for a year and collaging that into an NFT Art piece.
    Can't see why this controversial Game wouldn't make bank in the aforementioned platform, with all the publicity they already have, good and bad.

    They already own all their own assets and don't need to rub shoulders with other Companies' names and reputation.
    Better than setting themselves up for potential legal problems with Nintendo.

    Whoever buys the NFT is going to find out how stupid they really art. The NFT doesn't mean the person owns the rom. They own the link to the rom. If the link doesn't work anymore, too bad. Seriously, that has been the most reported problem with NFTs, that they don't say you own an item being sold, only own the link to something, so if the link fails due to a web server going down, or the link is redirected to somewhere else, then whoever buys the NFT will have spent money on what can effectively be a scam.

    The developer should be auctioning it directly, not the NFT, so this makes the developer look a little shady. He is seriously thinking the NFT route will be more profitable, but that's only if idiots fall for it.

    “possibly the rarest video game ever”


    No, it’s a crap idea and no one wants to sell it. Take a hint.

    I read some commentary the other day that indicated an NFT is really just a URL, so it's not even a ROM – it's a pointer to the ROM.

    In any case it's abundantly clear that this is just a publicity stunt and clearly it has worked splendidly. (And maybe this guy will pick up some money from random speculators.)

    So... how would one classify this? It's not a home brew game because it uses official Nintendo SDK and libs. It's not quite piracy because you purchased it and are installing/playing it the way the developer intended. Would the closest thing be a backup? Like, a legit backup with a legit ticket.

    Oh this dude.

    I'm pretty sure that he's gonna get sued for trying to pull this, assuming he's gonna do what I think he's gonna do. Nintendo's NDAs are fairly explicit that you can't share what you make with the SDK outside of Nintendo approved avenues. So unless the guy is planning to recreate the entire thing in libnx (which would... maybe also be against the NDA depending on how he acquires a hacked system afaik, not that I think this chucklefuck would do this), he's gonna get fucked over by Nintendo in lawsuits.

    Also I love all these dumbasses thinking that NFTs are "super rare and unreplicable". They're links to metadata files on the IPFS. Anyone who has a basic understanding of technology can access them.

    Anyway don't use NFTs kids, they're bad for the environment and don't work like you think they do.

    Re illegal.
    We have had a fair few devs release cancelled games before that I believe were made with SDKs. Never heard of any of them getting pinged, indeed source code being released when various libraries might not allow it (bink/rad video tending to be the big one https://github.com/github/dmca/commit/ada33178ba1e9496453e18e097634a2fefa45e87 ) or partners with an interest in it (see history of Elite http://www.iancgbell.clara.net/elite/editor.htm ) tends to be the main reason anything gets legally backed threats involved.

    Mostly GBA examples because that is what I know

    https://gbatemp.net/threads/motocross-challenge-gba-goes-public.49346/
    https://gbatemp.net/threads/neopong-releases-world-reborn.80138/
    http://www.ancor.ch/tls/index.php possibly, though not sure of the full story here.
    For the curious an old discussion but has a few more that did not see official release (haunted mansion and Kien being the most notable)
    https://gbatemp.net/threads/comprehensive-hosting-site-list-of-leaked-unreleased-games.342235/

    A GBC one from last year
    https://gbatemp.net/threads/towers-2-unreleased-gbc-dungeon-crawler-released.556602/

    https://www.unseen64.net/saintsrowundercover/ probably also ought to be noted in this.

    Now I don't know what agreements these devs would had made here as far as releasing things. I would however not be surprised to find they have some kind of promotional deal/publicity stunt exemption. There is also the question of "what money has Nintendo lost out on here?" if they did decide to sue, though I guess some kind of simple breach of contract might get something going on.



    Nobody wants to sell it (this being companies that will take any amount of shovelware and boring asset flips normally) or nobody wants to deal with a mob of puritans/be accused of various ists and isms in current space year?

    Seeing how the previous two games in the series, and all associated DLC, are available on Steam, and haven't been removed, censored or "cancelled", I doubt it's the latter.

    Fwiw, the better URL here is: http://www.iancgbell.clara.net/elite/cix/index.htm .

    Anyway, I think there's a good bit of precedent here that this might be taken down even when we look at Nintendo's recent history. A bunch of projects during the 3DS days got struck from GitHub because they were made with the Nintendo SDKs Unity plugin for 3DS.

    That coincidentally happened shortly after Nintendo chose to open up its SDKs for more people (in what I can only imagine was an attempt to draw out dumb homebrew developers to then be able to NDA lock them from making more homebrew). So there's definite precedent for Nintendo not being happy at all with stuff like that and those things might happen.

    Also it's the Switch. Nintendo has proven to be extremely trigger happy with the Switch whenever they can get away with it.

    Super Seducer is a crappy live-action "visual novel" game that teaches people how to do pick-up artistry. The original was a straight laced attempt at selling people how to be a pick-up artist, whereas the sequel started to pretty much lean into getting you to pick the "weird" options that includes things like launching ICBMs or being a blatant creep to women.

    I can see why Nintendo wouldn't be interested in publishing it on the eShop, it's running rather contrary to most things they want on their platform (yes I say this knowing fully well that they have Nekopara on their system).

    I don't really understand why the new one is banned and yet the last one isn't. There isn't even any nudity in these games as far as I can tell, and they are quite obviously just for a laugh rather than to be taken seriously. I would love to comment on the NFT thing but I'm not sure I really understand how it works.

    There is one thing I am wondering, is the game signed and installable on stock? I see he said it’ “fully playable,” so I am wondering if this is going to work like a “Legit CIA,” where the only requirement is a means of installing the game and then it works? I am definitely interested in knowing more.
