Thanks a ton! This was made with the default gbstudio palette before 1.2 was launched. I'm looking forward to trying the new palette options!

This game was really cool!  The story was very amusing, and a retro styled rpg setting felt like a very fitting home for it.  The game also felt very polished, and just like a real GameBoy game.  Great work on the art and sound design!  My playthrough is here if you're interested:

just played through it while livestreaming, tried really hard not to do any play testing before the final release. I love everything about it, the sprites are amazing, the storyline/dialogue is great and it's bite-sized! only takes about 20min to play start to finish!

everyone should check it out when they get a chance, and through polyducks a few bucks, he deserves it <3
