Bob's Game

Here's a pretty simple site about a pretty amazing accomplishment. I discovered it dredging through the IGN Nintendo DS General Lobby.

This guy's name is Robert Peloni and he's been working for five years (FIVE YEARS) by himself (BY HIMSELF) creating what is essentially the Nintendo DS game of his dreams. Apparently, the game is now finished and he's looking for a publisher.

Here's hoping he finds one. The game has a large, incredibly interactive world and the art style is pretty cool as well...impressive for something drawn in pixels entirely by hand (BY HAND). Check out a video of annotated game play footage at his site.

Cheers to following your dreams. I hope I get to play his dream some day.
