I can probably use this to buy a can of corn, or a doughnut or something, and then eat it. Thank you very much.

About bradsmith

Hello! My name is Brad, and I'd like to create articles and videos about the NES, game development, music and other topics. I also want to make games, and fun or useful software, development and teaching tools. I would like to help others learn how to make games, create open source tools, research old and new game technology, share ideas.

Here's a very incomplete list of things I'd like to do:

  • Articles and videos explaining various technical aspects of NES or game development
  • Tutorial for getting started in NES development
  • A modern open source version of Family BASIC for beginner programming on the NES
  • Articles and videos about other game and music ideas worth thinking about
  • Improve the open source NES music emulator NSFPlay
  • Further reverse-engineering of the VRC7 Famicom expansion sound hardware
  • Continue to contribute to public information sources like the NESDev Wiki
  • Make more NES games, and for other platforms too

Because most of the things I want to do are going to be free, like open source software, or just contributions to public knowledge, I'm not sure if I have much to offer as patron rewards, but you can let me know if you have ideas.

I'm also available for freelance work, or live NES hacking. Please contact me if you think I can help you.
