A downloadable game

Buy Now$1.00 USD or more

I've always wanted to make my own video game, and what's happening in the world now gave me the idea for my first one. Over the course of a few days in mid-April 2020, I made 'COVID-19: Coronavirus Quarantine,' an actual Game Boy game based on the new stay-at-home lifestyle this pandemic has made necessary. This game is a ROM file, so it is playable on actual Game Boy hardware or on an emulator (like mGBA).

The best part is that I am selling the game for charity, for just one dollar. The charity is currently undecided, but I will take suggestions and my own research into consideration, ultimately donating all proceeds to a worthwhile cause that is doing good work during these unprecedented times.

The game is silly, but I hope it gets an important message across: Staying home can get boring, but it's also important.

I made a video walking through the game and explaining more about it, so watch that via my YouTube channel, Game Game.
