A completely original Gameboy game. Like, a literal ROM. All design, artwork and music are my own so you know, don’t judge too harshly!

Development

A linear short story game, built entirely by myself in a couple weeks which was an intense challenge. GB graphics palettes are an absolute nightmare that I might never repeat. Then again, the main theme is an Alestorm cover which turned out great and I had an awesome time making it!

This whole bad boy is open source if you’re interested in running the project yourself in GB Studio - which I highly recommend. It’s a little limited with the styles of game you can make but I wouldn’t have made anything as complex working from scratch, so it’s worth it.
