Bob's Quest Developer refuses to leave room until Nintendo addresses his application for official developer status.
Robert Pelloni has spent the last five years of his life creating a DS Homebrew title, aptly named Bob's Quest.
The 2-D adventure game is set in modern times and contains about twenty hours of gameplay. Pelloni is actually not asking Nintendo to publish the title, he merely wants action on his application for licensed developer status and a DS Nitro software development kit. Without the kit, Pelloni is ineligible for publisher support as development was done through homebrew means. However, he says that "many third-party publishers are interested."
Seeking to draw attention to his plight, and a response from Nintendo that is two months overdue, Pelloni has locked himself in his room, with his webpage providing live images of him 24/7 at the computer. He lacks a connection to the internet (he updates his website through cellphone) and is given meals when requested. He plans to stay there for 100 days in protest hoping Nintendo will hear his plea and send him the kit he needs to complete 5 years of his life's work.
