It’s here! Today is the day I get to share with you the brand new game I’ve made: Raven’s Core for Game Boy and Game Boy Color.

This exclusive bundle includes something not found anywhere else: the complete GB Studio project! When this game was being developed, it became clear that it was something special in the GB Studio scene. I found that it became a unique opportunity for those wanting to build their own shmup game to have a complete framework to work from. So I decided early on to share the complete project with the Itch and GB Studio communities to empower you to learn from what’s here and use the framework for your own current and future builds.

“There’s a peace that can only be found on the other side of war.” – King Arthur

So when the alien invaders known as RAVEN entered Terran space, it was time to act.

Armed with the most advanced spaceship ever built, you stand between Earth and the RAVEN onslaught.

Do you have what it takes to attack RAVEN on its own turf, destroy its central core, and bring peace to the Earth – and the galaxy?

This game features:

  • Eight stages of side-scrolling shmup gameplay

  • Four boss battles and a final boss battle at the core

  • All original music soundtrack

  • High score save system

  • Continue feature, even after power off

  • Parallax scrolling in stage backgrounds

  • Integrated storyline

  • Compatibility with the Game Boy, Game Boy Color, Gameboy Advance, * Super Game Boy (SNES), Game Boy Player (GameCube) Game Boy / Game Boy Color emulation, and the Analogue Pocket

I hope you enjoy playing the game as much as the team and I enjoyed making it for you! Let me know what you think of the game in the comments!

Thank you for supporting homebrew gaming and the retro gaming scene!

Special thanks to fellow Itch member Robert Doman for his help with this project. It wouldn’t have been possible without his support.
