Why would compiling your game with devkitpro be "illegitimate"?

In my mind (and most people's or even third-party publishers) it's not.

From the point of view of nintendo it is.

Which is really my sole point. Why the hell does he want to interact with nintendo directly. He'd have a better chance through interacting with a publisher or a small studio that already is licensed.

Because he'd be using their SDK and it wouldn't be "Bob's Game" anymore.

also he has continually said that he wanted to make a NINTENDO game. he seems to have romantic notions about the company. we all have nostalgia but come on.

The new years party WAS the joke.
The protest is real. The game is real.
When Nintendo of Japan finds out about this, it's all over.
Think about it- the engineers are like *me.* NOA is a bunch of marketers and lawyers that don't know a masterpiece when it hits them in the face. All it's going to take is one single Japanese engineer to see it, and katanas WILL BE SHARPENED.
You guys are smart enough. Figure it out. The shovelware problem is way worse there. They license that Simple 100 DS crap ten times a day.
Think how this looks. Some guy from their American branch turned down this game without even bothering to look at it, didn't ask them, and now won't even honor my application. Now they're blatantly ignoring a 100 day protest.
Japan's beloved friendly Nintendo company, stomping on this guy who worked so hard, who's begging them for something as trivial as a DVD. I might as well be Miyamoto himself doing a dogeza in front of their building.
Japanese corporations are the most ruthless in the world. They fire people from 30 year positions for a single mistake. Nintendo is the third biggest corporation there. Now I've got a plan that could cut into their profits at the worst possible time.
Are yuu starting to get it yet? My protest will work. Welcome to "bob's game."

Sometimes, I get bored of living on Earth. Earth is a place that I understand and am somewhat accustomed to, but it gets a little boring. At these times, I like to visit another world. It's called "bob's lame," a thread right here at our own selectbutton.

It's hilarious and surreal. I have a good time there, but I am very happy to go home when it's all done.

so you think their reaction will be different from NOA's, huh?
edit: i doubt they share your view that shovelware is a "problem," here or in japan.

You guys were trolling ME, so I did the new years party. I told you. It will work.
The game is great. I'm not lying. If you think about my plan, it's plausible.
Wait and see. The protest will work.

to get a licence, rare had to show nintendo some of their stuff running on a nes, but nintendo didn't send them a development kit, so they had to work everything out on their own.

Two concepts flashed tru my mind right now.

- If you think you suffered discrimination, why didn't you took a legal position? If you believe it's a personal issue that is affecting your company, then NOA would have to come up with a definitive explaination *why* your application was rejected. It would hurst NOA, of course, but that is now your goal. It's just a less passive-agressive manner to do so. It would also actually move some heads in the company.

- If you release your game as homebrew, what is stopping "real" DS companies to grab the binary and release it as a Bratz-banded game? Or simply writing a clone - a game that took 5-years to be developed by a single man, is a 3 month game for a company with 16 people.

Actually, i think I already played Bob's game, but it was called "Miami Nights: Singles in the City". Except it had less minigames and more french kissing. I mean, I'm assuming Bob's game does not have french kissing.

On a sidenote, both companies were already well established brands with released games. On another positive mark, the guys that did V-Rally 3 GBA developed the engine using homebrew tools and it did the rounds around the community before it was (mostly) rebranded as a V-Rallly game.

Bob, what are you going to do if this Nintendo thing doesn't work out? It sounds like Nintendo doesn't think it can make any money off of you and plans to ignore you forever, which it can and will do.

Supposing it is in fact impossible to have a Nintendo release, are you still going to release the game in some form?

I hope you do, I want to play your game. Better to have an imperfect release than no release at all. (It worked for Mother 3, look how many people here have played that despite it not having an "official" release).

Just release the game somehow.

I have been approached by a Chinese homebrew cart manufacturer that can secure a retail distribution deal with Wal-mart, similar to what Tengen or Galoob did, but on a DSi enabled homebrew cart with "bob's game" included on a microSD card, for less than the price of a high-budget DS title. It gives them the legitimate means they've needed to go to retail, and it gets my game on a cart.
The plan will work.

Be careful that all your hard work isn't destroyed by firmware updates, Bob. Even if you manage to market it well to the general Wal-Mart crowd, they may not be savvy or patient enough to play update chicken with Nintendo.

EDIT: Also if this card is released before the US DSi (which doesn't even have a release date), then your game will probably be unplayable on American DSi as soon as they are released.
