a view of the frontier – the process as a game forever

The homebrew game world is dominated by hackers bending the rules of corporations. Without corporate rules coder groups and lone individuals produce lots of similar homebrew games, lots of adventurous or weird ones, lots of boring stuff too. Older hardware becomes easier to emulate in software. Thanks to the work of hackers in wild frontiers peeking through the dark, we can still run our old favourite games on newer systems. Here and now the hacker elite open even more new worlds by building their own portable gaming devices – open hardware - to compete with the majors.

homebrew game development - tools, games, stars

Ohne Publisher und Studio entwickeln findige Hacker in ihrer Freizeit selbst Spiele.
Statt bombastischer Grafik zählt hier noch gameplay und Spielspass.
Kleine Produktionen schaffen immer häufiger den Sprung auf kommerzielle Platformen.
Wie sieht die Indie Szene aus ? Wie und auf welchen Konsolen kann man selbst entwickeln ? Und welche Spiele-Perlen gibt es jenseits (und demnächst auf) PSP, Xbox und Co ?
