The Homebrew scene is alive and has a voice! Actually, it has voices!
As the scene continues to develop and evolve, we now have an #8BitLegit Podcast to tune into for news and notes on the NES Homebrew community.
Captained by Nintendo Age users SoleGoose Productions and KHAN Games, "The Assembly Line" is keeping us up to speed on all things Homebrew including new games, new tech, hardware and anything else they deem cool enough to broadcast.
