Frequently Asked Questions

How do I put my game on a real cartridge?

I’m working with thepoorstudenthobbyist.com to make a programmable cartridge system. Just plug the cartridge into the programmer and the programmer into your computer. Click “Save to Cartridge” and you’re done!

Can I make hacks or copies of existing games?

No, Retro Game Builder can only be used to make new, original games. Furthermore, the cartridge flasher code is integrated into the main software and only works with the games you create.

What operating systems will it support?

I’m developing Retro Game Builder for Windows, but I am considering porting it to Mac and Linux in the future.

Will I be allowed to sell the games I make?

You own the games you create with Retro Game Builder, and you can do what you like with them as long as they don’t incorporate anyone else’s intellectual property. Selling “fan games” is not allowed.

Is there anything I can do to support the project?

The best way to help is by following the project and sharing it with people you think may be interested. Thank you!
