NCFC’s Mega Man Offerings
I’m very happy to hear that this year, the Nintendo Community Fangame Convention has attracted a few Mega Man entries. If you are unfamiliar with NCFC, you can think of it as a SAGE for other gaming franchises besides Sonic the Hedgehog. Basically, it is an event where fangame developers can show off their latest creations. While it is an online “convention”, there are booths to visit and events going on in real time, so be sure to check out everything before it closes on October 28th.
Below are direct links to the three Mega Man entries’ booths where you can see and download the games. I plan to personally review each one before the convention ends, so please look forward to some more extensive coverage on each one!
If you have ever been involved with the process of making a fangame, you know just how difficult it can be to keep the thing going. There are entire sites devoted to the creation of fangames for hit series like Sonic and Mario, which produce both rising stars and piles of scrapped ideas. While there is no prevailing site for the hosting of Mega Man fangames, there are a number of sources that try to catalog valid projects, such as the Mega Man Knowledge Database, the Mega Man Home Page, and my own efforts on Cutstuff.net.
