New Toy

Tuesday, January 15th, 2008

I bought myself a Cybiko Xtreme on Ebay last week. It’s obsolete and the community seems to be pretty much dead in the water, but I won’t let a little thing like that stop me, and I plan to develop a game or two for it. Maybe even in the near future (geological time).

I must admit, I had never heard of the Cybiko until a recent post on Retro Remakes, but it looks like just the kind of thing I enjoy messing with, a bit like the Pokemon Mini.

I contemplated doing something for the Nintendo DS over my Christmas break. I got the development environment set up, and read around a bit, but in the end I wasn’t really struck by any inspiration. I’m a bit worried that the DS is not restrictive enough for me. I seem to need to some constraints to spark my creativity.
