Profit from homebrew?

Post by Loofy‍‍‍ »

I'm curious in knowing if a dev has actually managed to turn a homebrew project into a profitable business.

No Its The Love Of "HOMEBREW" There Is No Way Possible To Profit. Its SONY'S DOMAIN..... If You Want To Make Games And You Know How To Code Try UNITY 5 Its Awesome.. You Have To Buy A License . You Have To Be On The Latest Firmware. Then You Could Profit.... :lol:

Yes.I know almost three case of nds homebrew than finaly end as a comercial product : "Colors!", "jEnesisDs" which was bought by Sega to release Sonic on nds and Dsx86 which has been used to port some olders game to Android .

Also some people which began with gba homebrew finish creating gba and nds comercial titles (An example is Hugo Smiths creador of Dsiware games as flipper ..)

Even if devs of the homebrew projects cannot turn that very same projects into something profitable, I'm sure they learn a ton of stuff in the process and can turn that knowledge into something profitable.

There are a lot of such stories, but any beginning startup needs a minimum capital.
