Revamping projects + source on GitHub
With the resurrected interest in Homebrews and indie gaming on Sony PlayStation Portable and PlayStation Vita, we're planning to be active on this matter again. With active monitoring the scene and upcoming projects, we want to report the relevant events.
Also, with more than ten Homebrew projects, we want to be active with releasing never-before seen projects to the masses. Exclusive version will see the light of day and can make their way to your handheld. The current projects that will be updated are:
- Rayman PSP
There has been a draft version for the Sonymon Homebrew project since 2017. This version never has seen the light of day. That could change in the future with the increasing interest in Homebrew games.
In Sonymon the player can battle against wild creatures and many more adventures can be explored in this game. But beware of the legendary creatures There is a small chance you’ll see this Sonymon in wild. Created by the founder of KosmicSoft Development.
Sonymon is an amazing game, and back when it first released, one of a kind PSP Homebrew. Many people kept comparing Sonymon with Pokémon. The revamped version will have a graphical overhaul. Below you can see some concept art created for this newer update:
You can download current version of Sonymon (0.4) right now on the download link below:
Rayman PSP is a Homebrew engine of the original Rayman platform. This has been since 2012 in beta version. However, there are never before released stages that are yet to see the light of day. What better moment to get the project some relevancy than now?
Another way to justify the resurgence of the PSP Homebrew scene is with some in-house statistics. Since the foundation of FJM Homebrew (and the predecessor FouadtjuhMaster.eu) there have been lots of downloads.
TOTAL DOWNLOADS: 520,000
With Mario Kart PSP being the most downloaded project.
