    Maybe they used something other than a devkit. I dunno what the agreements for Unity, Unreal, and CryEngine are like, but they could've used one of those, or any other engine that supports programing Switch titles. So far what I've seen on the developer's Twitter account has only mentioned "porting costs", which could mean the cost of either the pro version of Unity, or Game Maker, or any other engine that supports Switch that requires an initial fee instead of taking part of your revenue.

    Would Nintendo allow that to continue?

    I call bullshit on Steam for banning this game, as I recently, for some reason beyond my comprehension, landed of a "dating sim" game that was nothing more than a game of 3D animated characters having explicit sex. It was supposed to be a DATING SIM, but it was instead a fornication simulator.

    It was in alpha or some stuff, so I don't know if it came to be or it is still there. I tried to scavenge the link, but alas, try as I might, I can't find that.

    Type "Escort Simulator" on Steam, for example.

    So yeah, I can bullshit. And Nintendo too, with the amount of visual novels with scantily clad characters all around, Like Prison Princess and crap like that.

    So yeah, because of these behaviours of policing some content and not others, I less and less purchase games in those storefronts.

    Well you need a portable version, you need a wing man while you do your seducing if you don't know what you're doing.

    Not the worst thing as far as future words/phrases go. If they are of the economics persuasion then expanding nft into non fungible token might even be speculated upon (money is fungible being economics/finance/accounting 101), and bitcoin was already a thing with some nerd cred too and mt gox was a thing by this point.
    The idea of an authenticity/ownership certificate being held in a secure database would likely not have been that radical either -- online activation of software was a thing long before then (2009 even seeing Microsoft do a variation on the theme for the 360 https://www.mcvuk.com/business-news/publishing/will-360-games-on-demand-worry-retail/ , though would be 2011 that we saw the PSP street be launched, everybody having long got used to flash carts on the DS as well) and ownership of certificates was also simultaneously a thing many companies got to contend with for their fancy software too.

    Better add to the explanations of NFTs thing too

    I wish nintendo sold roms, then people wouldn't complain about them shutting down websites sharing them. They just have to fill the void they keep creating. Even if it's not completely obvious yet, Sega "Sells" roms with every purchase of a megadrive game from steam sega collection. (It's intended to be modified and shared on steam workshop) but you can just use them in any emulator you prefer. Sega still does what Nintendon't. (not the homebrew program) :ninja:

    If the SDK was obtained legitimately then he might have violated some clauses in the contract, although Nintendo would have to sue him before we'd find out whether the contract was deemed fair by the court.

    It would be a great case as it would be similar to fortnite vs apple. If he can't sell it on nintendo's store, why can't he sell it elsewhere??

    When an engine like Unity and Unreal advertise Switch support, it's with the understanding that you need to be a registered Nintendo developer, otherwise you don't have access to the development tools (compiler toolchain, libraries, etc) which the engine needs to build a Switch binary.

    Of course, they could have used an open source homebrew toolchain, like devkitPro.

    Thank goodness someone gets it. Key quote:

    So all that's really being sold to people is a string to a metadata file that anyone can read because the blockchain is completely transparent. [...] Anyone with only a slight amount of knowledge on how to look at these things is fully capable of extracting the "contents" of an NFT and sharing them for the world to see and it's pretty much fully legal since these URLs are unprotected.

    Probably because the publisher jumped up and down screaming "Ban me! Ban me! I wanna tell the whole Internet how filthy and controversial my content is and I will get so much attention!"

    Why? It's a great way for Artists to finally get big money. I'm all for it.

    Except you can easily make an NFT off another artist's work

    It's his game, not Nintendo's. They can only take back his development hardware, but his software is his own. More power to him for sticking a big middle finger to the bit guys. (Wish more devs would be this bold.)

    Only if they were dumb enough not to mint an NFT for it first. You ALWAYS mint your NFT before posting the artwork online, that's just a no-brainer.

    The thing is, a lot of artists dont support NFTs and don't want their work sold as one
