    Homebrew is a term frequently applied to video games or other software produced by consumers to target proprietary hardware platforms not typically user-programmable or that use proprietary storage methods. This can include games developed with official development kits, such as Net Yaroze, Linux for PlayStation 2 or Microsoft XNA. Many homebrew games are offered as freeware, although others are offered for sale, and some can be quite costly. One popular type of homebrew game is the fangame.
