The NESmaker Byte-Off awards are our way of celebrating this amazing, diverse, creative, ingenious, passionate community. It is designed to be a collaborative event to drive new ideas and give everyone a platform to show them off. Many games that started off as fun, small scale Byte-Off demos have gone on to be fully fleshed out and have been published for retro and modern consoles.
This is a collection of 2022 Byte-Off entries. Keep in mind, these are all early demos completed in a game-jam type sprint. Play them, share them, and click the “Place Vote” button for your favorite. Voting, saving favorites, and more options are available by quickly making a free account.
