Pokémon Brown turns 20

Today, 20 years ago, I was in high school and released the very first version of Pokémon Brown. The first version was a mess in retrospect, built with a small map editor, “Tile Layer Pro” and a hex editor. but it broke grounds being the first finished “New Region” hack.

I could’ve never envisioned what ROM Hacking would’ve grown to 20 years later, the idea of modding games has grown so much, resulting in incredible passion projects. My contributions and the combined efforts of various talent since helped ROM hacks excel.

I encourage everyone to keep pushing forward, prove that your ideas are possible and continue to inspire the next generation, because the best is yet to come from ROM Hacks. I’m also still making stuff (the cartoon and a small game) and hope you like them when they’re out.
