Wink’s never been this retro before

Wink is taking inspiration from Gameboy classics like Super Mario Land 2 and Link’s Awakening, but doing its own little thing. It has been described as a “cross between Megaman and Kirby”. Regardless of the comparisons, Wink has its own personality and a crazy little world to explore all its own

Explore the weird and cute post-apocalyptic world of The Outskirts while collecting coins and mysterious ancient treasures like floppy disks and cassette tapes

There are FIVE levels and plenty of secrets. Have fun!

I’m using the awesome game making app GBstudio to create Wink for Gameboy. GBstudio enables people to make games that run on real Gameboy and Gameboy Color hardware! GB Studio v2.0 beta has made it possible to make platform games too. I never imagined I’d be able to do this, and I’m so excited that it’s actually possible
