Description

Amidst all this talk of next gen systems, some developers are going back to a simpler time.
lowtek s founder Alastair Low was frustrated that releasing a NES homebrew on steam seemed incredibly difficult. So he reached out to his friend at “Killgarif Technologies” to modify an open source emulator to auto boot a nes rom and make it easy to change a few basic settings.

History

Lowtek Games recently released Flea on steam using this method and wanted to share the tools that made this possible with the community.
Lowtek Games also did a similar thing with the SEGA Dreamcast, where they commissioned some edits to an open source NES emulator for the Dreamcast and made it free and easy to do.
There are still a few bugs in the system but it offers an easy if basic way to publish on steam. Hopefully we can iron out any lingering bugs in the near future.
Other Homebrew developers have shown an interest and are excited about the prospect of launching their games on steam.
