A very special episode of the Negative World Podcast this week! Special guest Julius Riecke talks about the ongoing development of his homebrew NES game, Super Bat Puncher! Play the demo now to have fun with physics and punch bats with a giant spring-loaded boxing glove! And don't miss bonus Riecke after the closing music...

Then, Guillaume and Stephen a.k.a. DrFinkelstein find themselves alone to talk about Mario Kart Wii, Picross DS, Layton and Kirby.

Moving on to the topics, Stephen hopes to discuss The Legend of Zelda franchise with other excited fans, but finds himself locked in a room with only "killjoy" Guillaume. To make matters worse, Guillaume then decides to rant about an iPhone game no one cares about, and proceeds to mercilessly attack the capitalist system in Animal Crossing, another one of Stephen's favorite franchises!

Most unusual: the theme music comes directly from the Super Bat Puncher soundtrack by Dave Harris. The end music turns out to be an OCRemix by our very own Cubed777! And of course, the music throughout the episode comes straight to you from the Zelda franchise.

Comment on the topics, the podcast, the guests, the host, etc. on Negative World! Or, be a weirdo and post them on Facebook or Twitter instead.

I started listening to the podcast. The development process sounds very interesting. I really need to play this game on the Wii. Where do I find it?

Is your Wii hacked? Then you simply download a NES emulator for it, download the rom for the demo through the Super Bat Puncher page, and play away. If not, well, there is no way to play the rom on your Wii until you hack it.

You'll have to play on your PC, or something.

We are Metro-Detroiter Kindred Spirits!


On Mac there's a program called Darwiin and it'll allow your mac to read the Wiimote's signals, thus allowing you to use those controllers for your emulated titles or anything you wanna control really. You could in theory control iTunes and such with your wiimote at a party lol. But that might be an option for you.

Super Bat Puncher sounds cool I want to give it a try sometime. I have yet to buy any homebrew NES games; maybe I'll start with this one.

Of course! Once I confirm Cryojin's involvement in the next podcast, we could line you up for the one after that. I'll talk to you about it tomorrow perhaps and let you know what goes into it.
