Yes, the original Nes. There are a number of reasons for this, but probably the biggest is: Why not?
We have the NES to thank for everything that has come after, and its simple but powerful design has endured for
decades. So many games on the system are called classics for a reason. They are not only still fun today, but
serve as examples of how to make games entertaining, despite whatever limitations you may face. Almost everyone remembers
and loves the NES, and with the recent release of the NESMaker game engine it has become much more accessible to create games.
After all, who still has an NES?
Nix: The Paradox Relic is going to be released in both Physical and Digital form.
If you happen to still have an NES system, you can buy an actual physical cartridge of the game and play it just like any other Nes game.
Otherwise, the game will be available as a rom to play in emulators, and hopefully in the near future a standalone PC executable.
Nix: The Paradox Relic uses Nesmaker, a new game engine that brings NES development to the modern age.
It is a great introductory tool for game development, and you can make simple, hardware playable NES games with little or
no programming experience. If you are willing to dive into a little assembly code, the possibilites with the tool open up exponentially.
