The history of DKF badges (part 1)
« on: April 29, 2024, 06:20:43 am »
Hey folks! I wrote some fun words about the history of badges here at Donkey Kong Forum. (This also may be foreshadowing to a future write-up on a very particularly impressive badge-related achievement.)

Thanks for the interesting read!

I think we need a badge for clearing 1-1 without jumping.

Thanks for the glimpse into the badge and forum history.  Now I realize that I never checked my badges after achieving the RBS.  Let me just look down below now, badge hype!!

I posted "Part 2" today. This goes into the Trifecta and Masters badges, and goes in depth on Barra's quest for Rank A, and Finkel's quest for Rank S.
