    In that bara manga ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)
    The release is a birthday present for the Wii's 10th year anniversary and dedicated to Ben "Bushing" Byer who wanted the HBC to be open-sourced.

    Nice. So...how about someone porting this to the PS4, vita or xbone? I'd do it myself but I'm too busy bossing others around. :tpi:

    Meh, GridLauncher looks nicer. I don't like the HBC's art-style that much.

    That's a really nice gift for the console's 10 years anniversary :)
    Thank you to team Twiizers for making the sources public.

    I don't know if it will result in anything good (like they said, they didn't want multiple different entry points or version/mods of the channels).
    But there were still some reported bugs unfixed, maybe someone could look at these. (sorry, I don't remember all these bugs, but someone reported an issue few weeks ago, but the official issue tracker was deleted. I don't know if the team kept them)
