Do You Buy Home Brew Releases?

Simple question really folks, do you support home brew releases.

I myself do and I own a stack of home brew games for the Jaguar, Lynx, 7800 and a load of ST ones from back in the PD days.

Yes!

I've bought and continue to buy homebrew game releases for retro consoles - mainly for Dreamcast, Jaguar/Jaguar CD, Lynx and Vectrex.

No, but not for any reason that I was a collector not involved in the retro scene until RVG. Now I know of the existence of these games I will certainly be changing that. First up is Stirmwind.

Absolutely!  For all my retro game systems.

YES!

There are some amazing homebrews... some are better than the games that were available when the consoles were current.

The massive library of Vectrex homebrews probably has better overall quality and more diversity than the original retail library. :D

Sometimes.

I only have 3 for the Atari 2600 (Euchre, Poker Squares & Lady Bug)
And Rush Rally Racing for the Dreamcast.

Just saw Boulderdash for the 2600 (looks amazing) but at $81 - it's a bit too steep!  :-[

Apparently due to licensing and special hardware needed for it on the carts.

Too much to spend on a 2600 game for me.
