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

You can play it here in the browser, or download the ROM to play in your favorite Gameboy emulator (or console).

Further development:

With more time, I would like to add more variation, like extra routes and backgrounds. Background music is also a possibility (current versions are sound effects only) but depends on available resources and how much I can teach myself about actually making music.

I'm still actively updating the game, so be sure to check back every now and then to get the latest version.
If you have purchased an older version and somehow can't download the newer ROM, let me know (eg. leave a comment on the most recent dev log).

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.
