It has been a busy month for the Vita scene with several homebrew game releases, a couple of ports, a few of updates to some handy utilities, and even a new version of everyone’s favorite GBA emulator. To start off, on the last day of July, we saw an update to Joel16‘s VITAlbum, bringing the multi-format picture viewer up to version 1.10; and we also saw the much anticipated release of VitaHEX Games‘ The Hallway v1.0, the P.T. clone that now features a puzzle that allows you to escape the house. In the first few days of August, endrift released mGBA v0.8.3, which brought many bugfixes and stability improvements to this Gameboy Advance emulator. That same week Northfear released GemRB Port for PS Vita, which allows users to play several games designed for Bioware’s Infinity Engine. The following day SKGleba released YAMT v4.0. a great tool for SD2VITA users that now supports PSVSD and USB, plus allows you to format your SD/USB to TexFAT directly from your Vita. Just in this last week alone, we saw four releases: a port of Baldi’s Basics Classic by hat, Crekeryop released v0.65 of his manga/comic reader NOBORU, a new homebrew game called Vita Stacks was released from VitaHEX Games, and another homebrew game from JJH called MemoryGame was also unveiled to the world.
