I'm still new around here, and I didn't see a similar thread in this area of the board, so I thought I would try and get a conversation started.
Out of curiosity, do any of the users of these boards develop homebrew games targeted to classic consoles? I grew up in the 1980s/'90s, so I've played more than my fair share of original Atari, Nintendo, Sega, and other systems... I even had an Intellivision, a Colecovision, one of those OLD (1970s-ish) gray boxes with dials on it, that you plug into a TV and play Pong with... and (running out of breath!)... a Commodore 64. There are others, but I'd never get to the point of this post if I kept going!
But I always wanted to make games for some of these systems... I've been programming Windows stuff for a while, and have had a modest amount of academic computer science training. Lately I've taken a fancy to NES development. And, being that there are handheld emulator consoles that will play NES ROMs... well, that led me here.
So yeah, anyone else around here enjoy chasing dreams they thought they'd abandoned years ago?
