    Default Bob's game

    bobs game is a unique 2d adventure game being developed for the nintendo ds , what makes it so special? its made by 1 person and 1 person only from graphics to coding.
    Hello.
    My name is Bob, age 25.

    This is my game for Nintendo DS, a 20-hour-long retail-size,
    retail-quality adventure title by a single human being.
    (Possibly the largest single-handedly made game ever.)

    "bob's game" is a simple 2D adventure game, with focus on
    story, puzzles, item collection, and communication instead
    of repetitive battles with palette-swapped enemies.

    Many characters (over 200 completely unique characters!)
    have deep personalities that evolve, and many things
    depend on the in-game time, day and weather.

    It's the game I wanted to play when I was younger,
    a vision I've been following since then.

    -

    The game industry is evolving rapidly into a new era where
    titles are made by teams of more than a hundred developers.

    I saw a window of opportunity quickly closing- what may be the
    last chance for making a console game to be possible by a single individual.

    Even on a portable platform, singlehandedly creating something
    generally made by large, well-funded teams was no small effort.

    All concepts, story, code, sprites, tiles, music, samples,
    fonts, etc. were created entirely from scratch by me-
    and I had to teach myself the skills as I went along.

    The code is straight C, the music is tracked, and the art is all
    completely hand-clicked tiles and sprites- done the right way,
    pixel by pixel, like the classics we all know and love.

    -

    "bob's game" is a sort of masterpiece for me.
    I've invested well over 15,000 hours into
    its development over 5 years of dedication-
    That is no exaggeration, and it shows.

    I hope this to become one of the last great old-school
    2D retail console games- truly the vision of a single mind.

    I would never in a million years buy this game. Its cool that this guy did it all by himself but i highly doubt it will be published ever.
