A new Game Boy inspired RPG has landed on computer and mobile devices. The game known as RED takes the Game Boy style aesthetic, with elements of popular and classic RPGs and Adventure games.
Developer DerpyDooDesigns have created a game that is “inspired by The Legend of Zelda, Stardew Valley and Animal Crossing. The player can farm, fish and mine to gather resources. You can sell them for money or use them in crafting weapons and equipment to fight monsters in combat, combat shall be similar to the older Legend of Zelda games, with real time top down action, and finally there’s even a conspiracy of which you must uncover”.
There may also be a supposed Game Boy flashcard for the game under development, as reported by Indie Retro News. You play as Red and your goal is to save their sister while traversing the land, gathering materials through fishing, farming and mining, fighting monsters and discovering hidden truths.
You can try out and support the game on the developer’s itch.io page.
I am a media and pop culture enthusiast and love Nintendo and indie games, particularly Zelda and Stardew Valley. When I’m not gaming you’ll find me writing, creating fanart, and playing music covers of my favourite games!
