As it’s the Game Boy’s 25th anniversary this year, French indie game developer Christophe Galati threw himself into making a Game Boy-style game as a tribute to the old handheld.That game ended up being called Tasukete Tako-San: Save me Mr Tako, and last week, a demo was released so you can take a look at it if you wish. You can download the demo on IndieDB for Windows, Mac, and Linux.
