About

NESICIDE is an Integrated Development Environment for the 8-bit Nintendo Entertainment System. With it you will be able to create NES games without the need for external editors or build systems. Everything from graphics designers, sound designers, code editors, to emulation with advanced debugging and profiling features will be featured. The creations can be played within NESICIDE itself, on your favorite emulator, put onto a PowerPak and played on a real NES, or burned into EEPROMs and placed onto your very own cartridge.

NESICIDE is cross-platform, supporting Windows, Mac OS X and Linux. Downloads of recent builds for each platform are available here.

The user experience with NESICIDE2 is also enhanced by the tool's website. Tutorials, a wiki, code snippets, discussion forums, and bug reporting or feature requests will be available. Users will be able to upload and share projects or pieces of projects with the NES developer community.
