Attention homebrewers! Grab free money here!

Homebrew development has always been a pursuit with few tangible rewards -- personal satisfaction, a love for the hobby, and/or an eventual desire to enter the industry professionally is what drives most to brew home.

So three cheers for GBATemp.net, which has announced the creation of a Monthly Homebrew Bounty. This is precisely what it sounds like: a monthly prize pool of cash that will be rewarded to the best new (or "significantly updated") DS homebrew game or application. For the opening month of the contest, the prize pot is currently over $600, including donations from readers (who can donate $10 towards the monthly prize for a right to vote), and sites such as NDSS.nl, Dev-fr.org, and Nentindo. Hey, $600 is better than a kick in the teeth. Quite a bit better, actually!

You've still got time to enter for the first month, but we'd advise you hurry -- the deadline is the end of August! Head here to learn more.


[Thanks, Archagon!]

Wacky Japanese games, emulation, DS Fanboy's recommendations, naughty homebrew: our recent week of homebrew coverage had it all. Don't be put off if you're a beginner, either -- we have guides and a glossary for the newest of newbs.
