Brand New Game Boy Games — The Future of Retro Gaming!
This Does Not Compute
There have been a number of absolutely amazing upgrades for retro gaming consoles, especially handhelds like the Game Boy line. But hardware like replacement screens and shells are only half the picture — brand new software titles can help these old consoles feeling fresh.

Nintendo is ok with this?
I suspect Rob is about to start receiving cease & desist notices from Nintendo for the use of their seal of quality and trademarks.
That sonic cover song… ugh. Was he going for the 'broken genesis remix' or something? :/
it's nice to see a bunch of GBStudio games have physical releases
you can always get powkiddy for $30 if you want a linux game console that can also play gameboy and dos
Where do I buy the "This Does Not Compute" Boy?
I really like it when new games are made specifically for old consoles. Micro Mages is an perfect example of a modern NES game. Despite it running on original hardware, it shows extremely well how much better new games with the same hardware limitations can be, simply because of our larger knowledge about the technology.
TIP: Do not open the cardboard boxes by sticking your thumb in to wedge it open like he did at 1:19 . Instead use a flathead screw driver or something to wedge at the sides of the flaps for a clean open. Only do this is you want to preserve the boxes, otherwise do as you want to do.
They could also make new games for Nintendo and wii
You should show us all the soundtracks
New games for old harder is not that rare
But usually, it creates on a digital form and if you want to play on original hardware you have to use some form of homebrew cartridge like for example R4 cartridge for ds I don't what cartridge game boy has but I'm the are very similar cartridge for a almost every console the have
in fact there is I game engine the call gb studio that is I software in the order to make game boy and game boy color games
I always thought it would be amazing to see a large, modern developer make a new game for old hardware. I think retro gaming has a large enough community that if a well respected developer released a game for say, the SNES or GB, there's be enough market to make a profit. Not a HUGE profit….but limited edition physical carts and digital downloads for Retroarch, etc.
This issue of course being legal trouble and copyright issues. Nintendo would absolutely sue any company releasing new software on even their long dead consoles.
The fanboy thing of the modern day Cecil Rhodes ruined it
Cool video! The PDA/OS idea reminded me of a personal organizer cartridge for the Game Boy… had a phone book, calendar, and some other stuff… made by InfoGenius.
I want to see people push the hardware with demos then games. demos showing what can be done them games building from that. Maybe in the form of a contest/con meet up.
I wonder if those first three games were built with GB Studio?
THIS IS SO FUCKING AWESOME. I always loved these concept and I’m happy someone came around to make fully working and aesthetically pleasing ones
There's something really transformative seeing older hardware getting new content.
There is clearly an appetite for this kind of resurgence in "neo-retro" and I think, given the success of the analogue pocket, and the growing scene in retro modding that releasing new content for these platforms is showing us that there is a market, one that'll hopefully grow.
I’m making a brand new Gameboy color game. Hope you’ll cover it! I’m really proud of how it looks
Nee software is great but man these games look terrible
Just pimped out two gameboy colors, very excited to see the gameboy community is so dedicated!
Legit getting into Dreamcast development hoping to contribute to this trend; newer games for older systems are legit fascinating
These types of videos always make me want to learn how to program gameboy and NES games but man is it ever a rabbit whole, especially with my limited C knowledge
That packaging is really incredible, high quality and super polished. But it's a little sad not to see any mention of GBstudio, the tool that's opened up gameboy development like this. Still some very neat stuff.
There was a Gameboy PDA prototype that never came out 🙁 RoxOS I feel was almost a recreation.
I'm definitely curious as a developer for Java I'd love to learn the logic for Gameboy!
The RoxOS cart is an interest pique-er for sure. Putting an entire MMU and FPU with memory into a Game Boy cartridge sized package isn't the problem. Its how do you make the entire thing power up correctly and make the OS entirely usable for people who own Game Boys/Colors/Advance/Advance SP.
Hey man! I got a ds replacement shell and i put it together but when I turned it on it didn't turn on! What shall I do?
Goodboy Galaxy is a very good looking GBA game being made. The demo at least shows a ton of promise.
Good boy Galaxy anyone?
Stop talking through all of the gameplay footage. Can't hear the music or the sound.
The biggest problem you have with the old school gameboys (GBA or earlier) is that you only have very limited button options.
A, B, Start, Select and with GBA L and R.
It's really hard to design meaningful games around that which are not puzzles, RPGs or platformers.
There are only few contemporary titles that work really well with such few buttons.
Some indie games manage to do that. But then again, why would you target a Gameboy instead of a Steam Deck or Nintendo Switch?
That would only make sense if you decided to cross-publish it with a Gameboy emulator included.
Heyo can you play my GB game just answer to this comment
It's cool alright.
All garbage and just cash grabs ridiculous
I wish nintendo wasn't so uptight about their older titles. There's plenty of reason to let us keep "support" for a beloved title. It just seems like spite, knowing they aren't going to do anything with them, any time soon.
BroForce on the Gameboy would be amazing! As well as many other pixel art games.
So a group of friends started making their own games during the pandemic. Carpet Shark and Plummet Challenge Game. Both are really fun games played on the NES. I have a hacked PSP with the NES emulator and it worked! So much fun learning about all this.
Musk is a big turn off.
Sir please notice me,why does my nintendo cube does not work?when i open it,the orang light turns on and turns off again but the fan is on,hope you help me….thanks
Not trying to be mean but everything you showed us looks VERY BORING!
This is a great topic
I wasn't even aware people were still making Gameboy games from the ground up, and I like the look of these, even ROXOS.. I've enjoyed tinkering with far too many OS' (everything since the C64, including MS-DOS on an Atari ST using PC Ditto).
Thanks for another informative and clear video
Damn this is so cool.
This is tickling a particular kind of nostalgia. I can't quite describe it. But I can almost smell fresh unopened plastic.
If this means 2D pixelated games being great again, EXCELLENT.
i kinda wanna know how to make my own gameboy game now
