Prepare to overdose on nostalgia with this 'Game Boy City' video. Created by the folks of What Pixel You On?, 'Game Boy City' is an animated short that adopts the 8-bit look and all-green visuals synonymous with Nintendo’s original handheld system in order to tell its quirky narrative.
Viewers are introduced to a female protagonist early on in 'Game Boy City,' who states she wants to, “make something of [her]self,” and thus the adventure begins. Watchers are then greeted by an expansive pixilated metropolis before encountering a giant robot rampaging through the town. The female lead then uncovers a Game Boy Color from a magic box ala Super Mario Bros. and shoots rainbows out of the upgraded console to defeat the menacing threat.
If that description sounded zany, wait until you watch the video.
