Happy 2021!

So it’s a small thing, and it’s late in the day (and already 2021 by the time most people read this), but I thought a fun little thing I might do tonight is make something to (hopefully) put a smile on somebody’s face. It’s a Game Boy ROM I created using GB Studio, playable with a Game Boy emulator, and it has no sound (since I built, tested, and compiled it in about 90 minutes)… but I hope you might enjoy it despite its flaws. I even made all of the assets myself, basic as they are, aside from the font I used. Proud of that!

I’ll try to write more thorough blog posts again in 2021, I’m sorry I dropped the ball a little this year. The game doesn’t make up for it, but I promise I will over the next 365.25 days.

I hope you enjoy my little trinket, and a positive 2021 to everybody! Stand Tall, friends!

Greetings from Quarantine: Game Time

I’ve purchased, reviewed, inherited and been gifted so many games over the years, I have some to spare that haven’t been given the time of day. Tiny curios from my trip to Akihabara over ten years ago, Xmas gifts from well-meaning relatives, the odd RPG that sounded neat but “it was never the right time”… if I’m not able to leave the house for more than a grocery trip or an ER visit (which hopefully doesn’t have to happen), now would be the time.

It’s time to play the game.
