Want to make retro games? How about making games on Linux that can be played on a Game Boy or the upcoming Analogue Pocket? GB Studio is your new best friend and a huge new release is out. A free and open source app (MIT license) developed by Chris Maltby, it's pretty fancy and incredibly easy to use too.
Some of what's new in GB Studio 3.0 includes:
- Export for Analogue Pocket.
- Parallax scrolling backgrounds.
- Sprite animation editor.
- Large sprites.
- Music editor.
- Multiple fonts.
- Custom emotes.
- GBVM scripting language.

Download from itch.io. The official Linux builds are for Debian / Ubuntu and Fedora / Red Hat, although extracting the .deb file on Arch and running the binary works just fine.
