    The GBAtemp Homebrew Bounty is a massive competition that aims to boost the Switch homebrew scene by giving rewards to a selection of the best homebrew projects.

    This first month, we reward tools and utilities, that is to say, computer-based programs that help create homebrew or that perform various tasks relative to Switch hacking/jailbreaking. There are 4 categories in total.

    The voting process is twofold: the staff gets to vote, and some members can vote too (in separate threads). We only allowed patrons to vote in order to limit possible fraud, and also to reward them for supporting us. We've just counted the votes. And the winners are...

    Congratulation to the winners.
    There were more entries than I thought we would get and it was hard to decide.

    The entries with less votes are not bad or useless, people will still use your program. don't be discouraged from updating it or releasing new projects.

    I'm surprised that EVEN WITH SUCH AMAZING PRIZES, still no one wants to design a XCI loader.....

    Congratulations to all the winners.

    And to the other participants, a round of applause for a job well done regardless.
