What if Elden Ring released in 1993? Elden Ring GB is a demake of Elden Ring that runs on real retro hardware including all Game Boy consoles, as well as in emulators and on Analogue Pocket. You can also play it right here in your browser, though the other methods are recommended to allow for saving, better colours and higher accuracy. Explore all of the Precipice of Anticipation, Northern Limgrave and Stormveil Castle in this bite-sized demake experience made in GB Studio.

Hardware controls:

  • A in top down sections- roll
  • A in side on sections- jump
  • A in front of person or object- interact
  • B- attack
  • A + B + Select + Start- return to title screen

Browser controls:

  • Z in top down sections- roll
  • Z in side on sections- jump
  • Z in front of person or object- interact
  • X- attack
  • Z + X + Shift + Enter- return to title screen

FAQ:

  • How do I play the game on hardware?- Download the .gb file and write it to a flashcart. It is a standard Game Boy ROM under 2MB using MBC5. You can also use it with emulators like BGB. If you have an Analogue Pocket, download the .pocket file instead.
  • Why isn't there any music?- There is only music on the title screen. If playing in browser, make sure you click on the game to start the music. It's difficult to implement sound in GB Studio 3.0, but I would like to add more in the future.
  • Why did you only make Limgrave?- Because I need to find an actual job instead of working on this game. I would like to expand the game in the future, but no promises.
  • I found a bug! What should I do?- If you find a bug that you think is an obvious oversight, let me know on Twitter @shintendoYT. I am aware of the v1.0 0HP bug, and will fix it soon. Collision bugs and crashes are most likely due to GB Studio stability, and will hopefully be improved in the future.
  • I am crazy, how can I give you money?- The game is free. Wait until my next original project and buy that. 
  • When is this game getting updated, and what is your next project? Follow my Twitch, Twitter and YouTube for more info coming soon...

I really enjoyed this game! It felt super polished. 

I made a video on it

Very cool, I made a video on it and just wanted to say that it was really fun.

It feels really authentic as both a de-make of Elden Ring and a gameboy game

For Italian Peoples:
Ho realizzato un video su Elden Ring GB, spero lo apprezziate

This is awesome! Did you just code this straight into C, it seems so well mad

The game uses the GB Studio 3.0 engine which is written in C. I used it without modification, and anyone else can use it too!

If you press the shift key and move in any direction your character will get bugt and move by itself

That was all kinds of rad! I hope you get time to expand it, and I'm looking forward to whatever your next project is!

this was fun, loved the boss battles

For some reason I can't start the game

idk what this is..... but it said to send pic to Devs.....

Such an amazing little demake! Check out my long play:

 

I really hope there will be more.

Absolutely fascinating game with authentic GameBoy look! As a hardcore Souls fan from Evergrace to Elden Ring I really enjoyed this little cute "demake". For me it was MUCH easier than actual 2022 game, maybe because of 2D environment and lack of "soul system". That unique Zelda-esque style looks awesome! I even managed to get all 10 runes (Advice for novice players: CAREFULLY search Godrick's Castle!). Like in any soulslike game the greatest thing was Bosses, there are only 4 of them - Grafted Scion (hardest for me, but beatable, I just tested), Tree Sentinel (easier than original, just dodge more often), Margit (if you have at least 6 runes you can just stand in one position and smack him) and off course Godrick (awesome recreation, really, don't want to spoil). Waiting for complete version with most of locations!

I loved the game, but I think that the tenth rune is really hard to find, I only found it when dodging an attack.

Hello!

I'd be very interested for a physical version, I'd be interested to discuss everything about it whenever you want, thanks 😊

That was fun! I could see why it's hard :D.

I got 9 Runes and still looking for the last one.

I would definitely buy a physical copy if possible. 

my gameboy color yellow can run thies but i rate it 3/10 (-7 poibnts for no lasgna!)

This is fantastic! Would definitely be interested in a phy$ical copy.

godrick try not to spam his fire directly infront of him for 0.0000001 second (literally impossible)

Just wrapped up a sick run! Legendary game bro

Just heard about this through the GameSpot newsletter! Many kudos and much respect on making it big time, Shin; it's always an honour to meet talented game folk.

Harder than the actual game, still love it tho!

im not sure what this means but it says send a pic to the devs and idk how to do that other than here

If you could tell me what area you were in when it happened that would be super helpful!

same thing happened to and it happed during the fight with the tree sentinel

wow

ficou muito bom. :)

this is incredible

This was really cool!

(I'm using the translator) 

Is it necessary to have a gameboy emulator to
 play or can I just download it on standard windows 11?

An emulator is required, I recommend BGB https://bgb.bircd.org/

Great work! Maybe you could remap the web version to match a GB's layout? So, B maps to Z and A maps to X. Would make it consistent with real hardware :)

This was a lot of fun. I really enjoyed it. Great work!

It's great, I really love it!

I can't seem to find the 10th one, tho :(

Same. Driving me nuts. Came here just to verify they're all in this build. :)

Even started over to see if the Grafted Scion dropped one. Does not.

Feels like there was an intention with Sellen, but she just has dialog right now.

Oh, I found it. That's embarrassing and rad.

Love it!

It's good. Just lack some music. I love the transition between top-down to side screen gameplay. Good work!

Much thanks for your work !!!

Can you please port this to the panic playdate? Just an idea im fine with a straight port obviously but itd be cool to roll with the crank. Please in your name i pray. Thank you regardless this is sick

https://github.com/mierau/gamekid

Do you just sideload it the same or how do roms work on the playdate?

The instructions are on the page

This is great! 

This game is awesome, such a great idea, executed wonderfully! Can't wait to see what you do next!
