Have been informed that I missed Cubivore.

Also spotted one called Cubix Robots, but I think it was only coincidentally cubey named because it was on other platforms first.

GT Cube and ZooCube. The only Cube games for GameCube. What a missed opportunity for a whole generation!

Super NES had a bunch of games with "Super" in the title. Nintendo 64 had plenty of "64" games. Where are all the "Cube" games for GameCube?

Not quite a dolly zoom, but similar. The perspective effect of increasing the far horizontal scale, without affecting the vertical depth or near scale.

Despite local creatures continuing to dig around in the soil, my pepper plants continue to grow well. 🌶🌱🐿

Super Empire Strikes Back and Super Off-Road: The Baja both carefully adjust the scanline spacing to add rolling hills to the landscape. Seems like a vertical 2D form of raytracing.

The effect reminds me of Super Hang-On or Rad Racer, but mode 7 allows some extra texture.

I posted a build of the Mesen-SX hack on the NESdev forums in case anybody wants to play with it. It's just a quick experiment, so it's not perfect or anything. Maybe eventually a more polished form of it will make it into a future version of Mesen-S.

Terranigma has a very unusual curved perspective frustum. It also reuses the map as a blue "ceiling" in the underworld by subtracting red and green from it.

Lawnmower Man is another game that uses its mode 7 map a second time for a ceiling.

I had made a diagram to try and explain how the a SNES mode 7 perspective effect renders its scanlines out of the background texture... but then I realized I should hack an emulator to just show it real-time in real games.

The leaves even reach the edge of the pot now. Interestingly the 2-leafed sprout that was initially in more trouble has now outgrown its 3-leafed sibling. 🌶🌱

While I was sleeping, someone superglued some weird stuff to my windows 10 clock... 😒💪⏰

It was once thought that pterodactyls were mammals similar to bats, and these 1843 drawings by Edward Newman depicted them with screaming possum faces.

Some diggy holes appeared in the pot overnight, but thankfully the plants looked untouched. My mom got out some cayenne pepper, and created a ring of protection against squirrels. Peppers helping peppers? 🌶🆚🐿

The egg carton was starting to disintegrate, so I moved them into a pot... 🌶

I dunno why discourse is happening but I think he wrote some rad music. Here's my favourite, as played by an NES:
