Title: Your 2012 Homebrew Highlight?
Post by: TL on December 30, 2012, 19:02:44 PM
So homebrew fans what has been your favourite homebrew game released this year?

For me it's Impulse X on the Jaguar, I have been playing it regularly since I bought it!

Special mentions for Tube: SE (also Jaguar) and Zaku on the Lynx as I didn't play it until it was re-released earlier this year.

Well, technically it's an independant commercial game and not a homebrew, but since RVG doesn't split hairs about definitions I have to say Gunlord for Dreamcast.

Really an excellent game, a great homage to Turrican, and better designed overall than its famous role model imo.


Also there is Digger Chan for the Master System; it's a quirky little game, and the first real cartridge release of a homebrew on the system, which makes it special. I definitely hope for more homebrews on this great console in the future.

does Gunlord on the Dreamcast count? if so that's my pick, EXCELLENT game with brilliant production values for a homebrew/indie title

I have not purchased any in 2012 for one reason or another. But the ones that i would love to have picked up in 2012 would have been Gunlord or DK Arcade II..

So 2013 when i actually will...
