DMG Express invites you on a slow-paced trip by train, through a long scrolling landscape, past train stops and vending machines.

Controls:

GameboyKeyboard
AALT, Z, J
BCTRL, K, X
StartENTER
SelectSHIFT

Game play:

  • The A-button is used to confirm options or continue in dialogs
  • The B-button is used to go back
  • Start gives you the main menu
  • Select gives you a special menu (eg. while on the train)

The keyboard controls seen here, are for QWERTY, so yours may differ depending on the keyboard layout you use.

Further development:

Other projects have take up my time, but I continue to add improvements and still plan to extend the game.

  • Add a few different backgrounds for different routes
  •  Possibly add a rail map as well
  • Display your score at the beginning (if you use the save game feature)

Amazing! It's actually quite close to a game concept idea a got a few years ago which is still in a early sketchbook stage. Playing your game gave me some new ideas and motivation to maybe actually test my idea one day. Thanks for this!
I will keep an eye to incoming updates.

Cool! Would be nice to see other similar concepts out there, keep me posted on that one!

This is so cool! Any chance you could make is available as a .pocket file also? (for Analogue Pocket)

I agree, looks great! I'd be happy to help with any issues you might have with generating a pocket file, but it should be just an export option. You can test the result in Emulicious if you want to be sure that everything is working correctly. Thanks!

thanks for the suggestion! I added a .pocket export and tested it in the emulator. Seems to be working. Let me know how it holds up on the Pocket.

Awesome, thanks! I tried it out and everything seems to be working well. You might want to announce it on reddit at r/AnaloguePocket as well, people are pretty appreciative of new games there!

Thanks again!

Amazing, I didn't expect a response so quickly! Thanks so much!

Sure thing! I just added it. Let me know if it works.

Glad to hear you liked it. I'm working on an update (between other projects), hoping to fine-tune and expand it some more.

I love the premise of the game, nice pixel art

this proves you can do really good games with GB-studio

Thank you! GB-studio really is a great and relatively easy tool.
