A lot is happening at the moment related to Bulletproof Software's unreleased "Faceball" game for Virtual Boy, thanks to some noble souls going to great lengths to do great things for the community.
To make a long and twisted story short: an about 80% complete prototype of the game has been in private hands for many years, but last September, everything changed when detailed descriptions of said prototype had been posted on our forum
by Japanese "Mr. G".
A bit later, the prototype had found its way into the hands of Virtual Boy enthusiast and PVB member bigmak
, who has successfully dumped the cartridge by now and is going to release the ROM for free later this year! To recoup a part of the five-figure(!) sum spent to make all this possible, a special fundraiser is going to happen soon, in which people will have a chance to show their support for bigmak and receive complete, boxed reproduction copies of the game in return! Check out the respective thread
in our forum for all the yummy details.
Even more goodness is added by the fact that substancial progress has already been made by thunderstruck
in hacking the game. Chances are good that the game will eventually be completed by fans and released in a special edition. Find all the info in our forum here
Unaware of the great things that would happen, elite homebrew coder DanB
chose a completely different approach to let everybody enjoy Faceball: he coded a clone of the game called "Ballface", using the detailed descriptions provided by Mr. G. Don't miss to check out the freshly released first demo of this impressing homebrew achievement in our forum
