I am looking to have 8-bit homebrew games developed to play on the original NES system (NTSC version). I need them to play on the original hardware and so from my understanding the games should be written in 6502 Assembly Language. The games would either be loaded onto new EPROMS and soldered to existing boards or saved to a flash card and read using the PowerPak or Everdrive cartridge. I am open to suggestions and work-arounds but the key factor is that the games must ultimately be in cartridge form and play in the original NES system.
I am not looking for anything too complex to begin with. I would like to collaborate on some simple game ideas and functionality to test out and potentially bring to market and then move on to more complex games. I am open to ideas on this as well.
I own several retro gaming stores and I am looking to reinvigorate the 8-bit market with some new games. I have a solid retro gamer customer base and I hope to continue to foster a community of dedicated 8-bit gamers who will trust the games we put out. I can sell games with the right themes if they are decent, I just need someone to spearhead the actual game development. If we can make this work I believe a solid business relationship can be formed that could prove fairly profitable for both parties while bringing some awesome new things into the retro gaming arena!
I am setting the budget low at first but if the response is positive and there is something worth investing in I will get more funding for the project(s). We can decide on a project or hourly rate later once we discuss things further and get on the same page. If you have a passion for retro gaming and wish to develop some new games with the potential for retail sales, along with resume building and recognition in the game development community, get back to me with your credentials, interests, ideas, timelines and expected compensation for game development.
