Hi everyone! I’m Mousse, and this is the game I’m working on right now: Pakubyte!
First off, let me clear this up: yes, it’s a gameboy game! It can be played either from an emulator (pc, mobile, anything you can think of!) or from a flashcart on actual hardware. Yep, you’ll be able to play this on an actual gameboy!
The game will be released as a rom file, so you’ll be able to play it however you want!
(sorry for the placeholder art…)
Pakubyte is a visual novel + clicker game, where you help Paku, a digital fairy who lives inside your gameboy, gain weight by feeding her lots of tasty treats.
To increase the yumminess of your food, you can play Rock Paper Scissors against Paku. (Don’t worry, she’ll go easy on you!)
Weight in this game is measured in kilobytes: since Paku is a digital lifeform you’re increasing her filesize! But since we’re inside a gameboy, Paku’s weight will overflow back to 0 when it goes past 255… Worry not, as overflows are another method of measuring weight!
Here’s Paku after accumulating way too many overflows.
You can also chat with Paku at any time, she has lots of things to say depending on her current weight!
It’s gonna be a pretty short game due to hardware limitations, but I hope I can cram enough content into it to make it fun!
Sorry if the art looks weird, it’s my first time drawing this kind of stuff. >_>
