Been looking forward to this since I recently learned of it. It looks excellent and I'll be gently caressing the buy button the moment this is released. Thanks for the game and best of luck with everything.

Yep saw it the other week. Looks like my perfect game. Retro graphics. On screen controls. Metroidvania gameplay. Can't wait to get it

Seriously hopes the developer considers removing the green tint or be allowed to remove it in the app. Not only is the green tint very annoying (yes I know how the older game boy titles were so no need to comment about that!) but myself and others find that green tint to be very nauseating as well as cause other issues like headaches etc. sure this is probably a small minority but at the same time why turn away customers due to the green tint??

This looks fantastic and cannot wait. Assuming /hoping this will be a paid premium game? If I missed the price point somewhere I apologize....just hoping for a premium game.

I 100% hope it stays. Have to comment on it as its a ridiculous suggestion. Sure it will stay as that's one of the selling points of it. But its like criticising a retro game for being too blocky. Gameboy looking games are very popular

More people will be turned away if it loses its Gameboy look. No one else has commented on it and have 'turned away' from it

It's so weird that I used to hate the gameboy color tones so much growing up. I was so thrilled once the game gear was released and now I'm actually digging this game boy style. It's amazing how nostalgia turns things you used to hate into something you now want.
