I'm spinning this off into its own thread because it seems appropriate.
There's apparently been a gameboy-style game making competition recently and like 400 games came out of it, and many are free.

Article here.

Competition website here.
This is one of them:

This is another one of them:

Here is another, but the let's play is in German, but that's okay:

There are many of them and I don't have time to play all of them. Someone please find the good ones and tell me what they are. This whole thing amazes me.


EDIT: There's no YouTube videos for them, but Slugcaster: https://supernaught.itch.io/slugcaster and EXIT: https://nukespoon.itch.io/exit look amazing. You can apparently play EXIT in browser.

What meme is relevant right now? Look, just imagine I'm riffing on that. Updating signatures is exhausting.

This is really neat. Using old systems as a way to get people into game development is a winner.
