Hi! I'm wanting to take games made for GBJam and make them for Gameboy! Would I be able to get the assets and build for this? If possible, the GB studio project too? This would be for my own personal use :) 

Hey, this while being accurate was not made with GBStudio. Sorry about that!


Hey! No worries! Thank you for replying!


Such a good game. I think winter isn't bad

after downloading it, my computer said that I couldn't open it because I was not authorized to open it so I will need help with that, I use Mac.

It appears that apple has changed how .app files launch. You'll have to grab Love 2D and install it and then open the .love file in the Linux Folder.

Love2D Website: https://love2d.org/

so.... in which one should I click to download because it says it can't be opened bc they can't check if it is malware free

The website has a version on the page that is: Macos 10.7+

Macos 10.7+

I do not own a Mac, so I can not provide more support than pointing you at the download from the love2d website.


is there anyway to actually play this on a gbc because I would love to have it on the go.


No, sorry about that. It's made in a language that can't compile down to the Gameboy.

I'm glad that you like it enough to want to have it around. Thank you! :)

Short, sweet and relaxing experience! There was plenty to explore, see, and interact with. Loved the references to other games! I also like that the game kept track of a bunch of information such as steps taken and objects interacted with. Great work on this! 


Really charming!
Loved the humor and faithful retro aesthetic.
