A new demo for Bob’s Game, the homebrew Nintendo DS game by Robert ‘I cannot leave this viridian room’ Pelloni, has been released and is now available over on the Bob’s Game site.
The story of the release’s unfolding has gone on for a few days now. Originally Bob had penned in a 9/9/09 release of something, but no details were given on exactly what this release would be. Then a couple of days before said date, his website became rather colourful at the expense of one Mr. Reggie Fils-Aime (no points for guessing why). With many Bob’s Game fans understandably excited, the 9/9/09 came… and went – with no release.
However, with fans revolting on the Bob’s Game forums, a cryptic message appeared on the main page, simply reading ‘ETA: 2 HOURS’. Confused fans spent the next 24 hours trying to work out exactly what was going on. Eventually, an admin on the forums explained that Bob had been working ‘for about 70 hours without sleep’ and had been advised to go to bed.
Which brings us to today, and the ETA 2 HOURS message has been replaced with the words ‘test version available in forum’. And lo and behold, a new demo has appeared on the forums! The great news for all you PC gamers is that, while the original required a flash cartridge to play, this second demo is for desktop consumption. Grab it from here. Just try not to let Tetrid and Ping make you cry.
