Nosey Joe has been in development since January 2020. It started off as a fun project in NESmaker but got more and more serious as things like enemies, power ups and level design started to fall into place. I have spent hundreds of hours working on this game to make it as authentic as possible. My big goal with this game is to recreate the experience from the late 80s and early 90s. All the way from how the physical box and manual look and feel, to how the game itself looks and plays.

You can see a little bit of gameplay in this YouTube video from an early development version of Nosey Joe.

Here’s a very early video from Nosey Joe after only one month of development. It has come a long way since then.
