A New Virtual Boy Game Is In The Works

Dead Red Redemption!

yan's world
Oh, wow. Now here is a console I never imagined would receive a homebrew title.

Yan’s World is an upcoming platform game being released for Nintendo’s ill-fated, eyeball-destroying 3D portable console. It involves what looks like an onion complete with Sonic shoes going through a very difficult, detailed 2D world. The difficultly looks like it could be akin to Super Meat Boy. Graphics are detailed and attracted, despite the somewhat stringing red palette.

There’s currently not much information available on this title, but we’re promised a 2021 release that will also feature a PC port. The PC version will include widescreen support, an adjustable color palette, and even a possible release on Steam.

Though the Virtual Boy was a failure, it retains a dedicated following and it’s nice to see that the system’s fans have a new game to play in the near future. The game’s developer, People Pleaser, has a Patreon page here. You can keep up with the game’s progress at its official Twitter and Facebook pages. Both these pages have loads of nifty gifs of the game in action, which makes it all the more appealing.
