Wow those blue ones are fantastic looking! I love the clear look. It brings me back to the old days where Nintendo made almost everything translucent.

Wow I didn't think my lil question thread would be so popular with others. Glad more people asked how they can help too. Seems like a great place to come and pick people out who's help you may need for a specific task.

If you want to learn pixel art, just keep in mind the limitations of the medium. Obviously only 3 shades of red, plus black. But you should also make sure to use really low resolutions. Small multiples of 8x8 pixels. Even ALttP on the SNES uses a 16x16 sprite for Link, AFAIK. Exactly the same as Zelda 1 on the NES. It uses colors to make it look more detailed, but VB cannot do that. Also need to keep readability in mind for VB art; you will probably want to make sure to use a very defined outline unless you can be positive of the background color at all times. It is contrast that makes things visible. Luckily, the VB actually has an excellent resolution, so you can make slightly bigger sprites.

Thanks for the tips! :)

If you're not able to help in any of the above ways, monetary donations always help. For the right amount of money, some homebrewers are able and willing to work less on "real" jobs in favor of programming for the VB. Just remember what M.K. and Mr. Anon pulled of when Ben decided to fund a new VB game... In that vein, Jorgeche and me are currently preparing a crowdfunding campaign on Patreon. We hope to raise enough monthly donations to be able to work less on our day jobs and instead spend that time on working on the VUEngine and making Virtual Boy games. It would be incredible if we could find enough support to turn our passion into a part time of even full time job and being able to release regular new CIB Virtual Boy games.


I don't have a proper job but you can bet your bottom dollar I will be giving what I can to you guys. This community is the best one amongst all the other gaming communities out there. Everyone has been so friendly, kind, and helpful. It's the very least I could do.

Great! Thanks for the feedback and suggestions guys. I'm not Picasso but I can be competent when I need to be with art and drawing lol. I'm always game to help there. Learning pixel art is on my list of things to learn. I love the look of pixel art.

Music-wise, I suck. I can only do piano and even then, I can only recreate songs after hearing them. I never had any professional teachings.

Testing I could easily do since I am often at home since my health keeps me from really working. If I could help any of you with testing for bugs and stuff, I'm your lady.


Reviewing and giving feedback are things I do even for non-VB stuff. I post stuff on my YouTube channel increasingly more often. I actually wanted to do a series specifically on VB stuff and games (including the homebrew) so that you get someone's opinion that doesn't consist of lines like, "This is a headache machine..." or the generic "These are all awful"

Showing my stuff also falls into the whole YouTube thing as well. I always sing high praises of our console and everything that goes with it. I also share my love for the VB and you guys on various facebook groups and forums.

In regards to writing, I went to school and majored in journalism and LOVE writing as much as I love gaming. I'd be more than happy to help in that area if needed.

Candice, that you? Jordan Vgcollector here :p I guess a good way to get started would be to tell the others what skills you do have? Are you skilled in graphic design, artwork, layout etc??

That's meeee :) Good to see you here Jordan :)

I'm capable of some graphic work. I tinker a lot in photoshop and the like. I've made labels, done books, my drawing is alright and I have more free time than I care to admit lol.
