Hi! My name is Matt, and I am a videogames developer from England. I’m a huge Sonic the hedgehog fan, I love old consoles, and I love tinkering with old games development hardware.

  1. Matt,

    I stumbled upon your blog tonight as I too have begun my quest to begin programming for the Sega Genesis (sorry I’m from the states, but I’m getting used to calling it the Mega Drive). Anyways, if you ever have a minute I would love to chat via Gmail, Skype, etc.


  2. Hi, thank you for these posts. I’m finishing a Master System emulator and I have about 10% of my Genesis emulator done, so I found your site searching for some genesis stuff. At the moment I’m starting to translate Landstalker to portuguese, but I still have a lot of genesis programming and romhacking to learn. Maybe we can exchange some information and learn together. Please, send me an email. Thanks….

  3. Hello,
    I really like these blog but where can I get the source code?
    That site requires me to pay, is it possible to get the files?
    Please send them to my email.

  4. Well later I found out that they were actually deleted, since by then I only read 3rd and 4th chapters. But there are other sources, from chapter 5 so it’s good. Thanks for your fast reply, this blog is awesome.

  5. Hey man, I just wanted to say thank you. I’m a self-taught programmer fiddling around with developing stuff for the Genesis, and your posts were an *immense* help.


  6. Hello, Matt! Thank you for all of your work with this blog. It’s a fantastic resource!

    My wife and I are working very hard on several MD / Genesis projects. If you’d be so kind, I’d like to share our story with you, and get your feedback on a project we’re working on. I can PM you at SpritesMind, or you’re most welcome to email me directly. Thanks for your time – hope to hear from you soon!

  7. Hi, Matt! I sent you a PM on Spritesmind as “john8248.” Not sure if it got to you, though, as the message isn’t in my Sentbox. Sorry for the confusion – feel free to email me directly if there’s any trouble. Many thanks again!

  8. Hi Matt.

    I’m the Carthage Engine guy from Team Norwegian Blue and the University of Lincoln Game Jams. I was wondering if you could throw me an email sometime, I’d really appreciate some guidance on getting myself into the games industry when I graduate, particularly engine development.
    My gmail is kylargrey and my site is dakshen.co.uk, feel free to have a look around.

    Many thanks in advance and I hope to see you again at next year’s Jam.

  9. Hello, Matt!

    As I see from your blog and your LinkedIn profile, you’re not just a game developer, but a passionate gamer. Me too, though our preferences may not be the same. I love AAA RPG projects more and now I’m even able to make them come out faster as I recruit for them. One Polish studio now needs an experienced C++ senior. I’d be grateful for both your own interest or recomendation.

    • Hi, I’m Brennon Ramsey a beginner Indie Game Developer. If, you have some time, I’d love to ask you about the game development process. Personally, I’v been thinking about getting into the ‘Hombrew Scene.’ If you want to talk my twitter name is ‘@brennonramsey’ or my email ‘brennonramsey71@gmail.com.’

  10. BigEvilCorporation – Thank You for all the great work you put into this marvelous and informative site. It has been a HUGE help for me. I am new to programming in M68K and on the Sega Genesis.You’re time is valuable , so if you have some spare time, I would be honored to chat about several questions I have regarding M68000 and programming for the Mega Drive.

    Please hit me up an email at ‘gens.68k@gmail.com’

    Thanks again for your time! I hope to hear from you soon

    • Hi Chris! Sorry for the delay, I’ve been at a festival.

      I’ll drop you an email, but if you’ve got short questions with short answers then they’re best here for others to learn from.

  11. Hi Matt,

    I found this blog through your video tutorials on the Computerphile YouTube channel. I have been introduced to 68000 assembly language recently and this blog and the videos have been a big help and inspiration. Thanks a lot for sharing and good luck for all your projects.
