Green Boy Games announces Kickstarter for Game Boy/NES game, The Shapeshifter

Keeping the legacy platforms alive

Green Boy Games has been showing the Game Boy a lot of love lately, and they're not done yet. The company has yet another Game Boy title in the works called The Shapeshifter. They're planning to bring this title to the Game Boy and NES, but they'll need your help. A Kickstarter for the game launches on Jan. 18th, 2021, and you can get full details on that and the game itself below.

Independent retro development studio Green Boy Games is releasing a Kickstarter campaign on January 18th to fund their new fantasy adventure The Shapeshifter for Nintendo Game Boy.

The Shapeshifter puts you in the shoes of Elliot, an ordinary person who is going to spend the weekend in the mountains, who meets an elf that will grant him the power of becoming the animal he touches.

While The Shapeshifter will be available on the studio’s website, there will be 100 limited edition units with a unique number and signature exclusive for Kickstarter backers.

The Shapeshifter will be available in a cartridge packed in a box with a manual. The game will be fully compatible with all Game Boy, Game Boy Color and Game Boy Advance handhelds.

If the final stretch goal of €40,000 is reached on Kickstarter, The Shapeshifter will also be ported to NES.
