@Scrobins My Mono8 is not a homebrew project (it was a port of the Pico-8 API to C#). 

If his intent was to not include home-made (so to speak) ports of games already extant on other consoles, your game would be far from the only game that would have to be removed from the list...

Yep I consider it a homebrew as it applies to that console, much like KHAN’s Scramble and Sneak ‘n Peek ports.

Interesting. I don't mind my stuff being on here or anything (happy to have the promotion), but just to be clear...

You consider Pico-8 games to be homebrew? And further-more you consider engines written for PC based on Pico-8 to be homebrew? I've just never been super clear with what Mono8 is, so I wanted to make sure there isn't confusion.

Pico-8: A fantasy console for making, sharing and playing tiny games and other computer programs. It feels like a regular console, but runs on Windows / Mac / Linux.

Mono8: A modern C#/MonoGame game engine written to mimic the functionality of Pico-8 (color palette, code API, etc), but not actually an emulator or anything like that. Basically an engine to create retro-looking games for modern PCs which will feel familiar to Pico-8 developers. It is not a game.

I don't know if my other project Witch n' Wiz is causing confusion, as that is an NES homebrew game which is a port of my Pico-8 game of the same name.

Anyway, I hope I don't come across as second guessing your process (I really appreciate this work you do), I just want help clarify what my project is/isn't.

This is where I made a mistake, I must have misread one of your tweets, thinking this was a game. I’ll remove it.

      Hey y’all!
      Yoey and I are Team Chocoblip and we’re here to present our first ever NES project! It’s still untitled for now, we’ve just been calling it Project Chocoblip. We’re hoping to have a fun little  game by the time the NESDev compo deadline comes in a few weeks 🙂.
      Project Chocoblip is a Metroidvania/Adventure platformer about a girl who gets lost in the woods while trying to help her dad collect wood. With only her pom pom as defense, she must now find her way to the top of a mountain to make a signal fire.
      As of right now, the engine we’ve built for the tech demo features:
      Full 8-way scrolling:
      CHR-RAM parallax:
      Arbitrary slopes:
      Throwable pom pom:
      And here’s a bit of full gameplay.
      Here’s some details about the game’s development
      Written exclusively in Wiz. The level editor features a JS port of most of the game logic for immediate feedback.
      Currently using the full fat Famitracker sound driver for easing the composition process. Might change later depending on ROM requirements.
      Art created in Photoshop + NESST + custom editor.
      Build process completely automated from within the custom editor.
      Uses ANROM with 64 KB of PRG. Scrolling is done entirely within a single nametable.
       
      Among our future goals for the project are:
      Adding enemies/enemy logic.
      Adding other miscellaneous entities: one way platforms, moving platforms, environmental hazards.
      Finish final music with our guest composers.
      Developing a boss.
      Title screen/menus/cutscenes.
      Polish, polish, polish
      I'll try to keep this thread updated as we progress. We'll also often see we talking about the project in either the VGS or NESDev Discord servers.
      Either way, you can find me here if you're into the Tweets land and you can see posts from Yoey here.
