By - | Views: 12,350

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.
