Well, MemoRift has been getting some nice exposure the last couple of days, largely thanks to this post on reddit, but also from other sources popping up around the net, the latest YouTube video about the NES has gotten over 5,000 views and the site has gotten its fair share too, as well as many new YouTube subscriptions, so things are moving along nicely and its nice to learn that people are excited and interested.

Now that MemoRift’s becoming more complex, I’ve decided to start documenting its configuration and processes on the site, you’ll notice a new Manual section in the menu above, and actually, while you notice the menu, you might realize that the entire site has had a change of design, and the Manual is one reason for it, as the previous theme, retro as it was, was pretty nasty as far as reading a lot of text goes.

Lastly, I’ve created a brand new icon for MemoRift shown here with a nice “screen light” flicker effect.

More good things and announcements coming soon… stay tuned.
