Where's My Body?, a new Game Boy game, gains $28K from Kickstarter

Somehow in 2020 there’s still at least one developer making Game Boy games. There’s evidently still a market for them though. “Dana Puch,” otherwise known as Green Boy Games, has managed to secure over $28,000 from a Kickstarter campaign for their latest physical Game Boy game release, Where’s My Body?.

The developer has created four other Game Boy games so far, not including this latest entry. They have a burning passion for the handheld like nothing else. That’s why, when they felt like something was missing from their PC and smartphone releases, they turned to the first console they’d ever owned for inspiration.

Where’s My Body? looks like a fun little point-and-click adventure. You play as a hand that needs to solve mysteries and eventually find your body. It features classic 8-bit graphics, as you can see, and is inspired by the likes of Manic Mansion. And as it should, the physical cartridge will work with the original Game Boy, Game Boy Color, and Game Boy Advance.

Whilst the Kickstarter campaign is now closed, it’s still possible to preorder a copy of the game. The thing I love most about this game is that it comes in an authentic-feeling box as well. There’s even an option to order a Japanese version of the game with Japanese box. For those who appreciate niche collector’s items, this is it.

This could be one of the last Game Boy games to ever be developed and put on a cartridge. If you have a deep connection to the handheld, this game may be an essential purchase.

Started out playing Metroid 2 on the GameBoy at around 5 years-old, and now I write about games all day long. Can't play Switch and drive, I've tried. As time goes on the Switch is quickly becoming my favourite console of all time.
