We do maintain a bunch of other stuff too! A Game Boy Assembly Tutorial, an open digital repository of Game Boy homebrew software and RGBDS, the de-facto standard assembly toolchain for the Game Boy.
We also hosted popular game jams such as the gbcompo21 and gbcompo23, with winning entries usually going the long way and publishing as physical products.

The amount of dedication, skill, and passion that goes into it on a daily basis is mindblowing, and people keep discovering hardware quirks and bugs to this very day! I believe it wasn't that long ago that people discovered a glitch in the audio subsystem that gave you more control over note envelopes, and it was promptly added to LSDj (a tracker for the Game Boy that was first released in 2000) by the original author, who's still maintaining it to this day.
EDIT: oops, forgot the link!
I started to get a lot of anxiety about the whole process, and realized that I would have had to put even more effort into it ok top of my full time job, which further cemented my choice to just run away from it. I periodically feel really bad about it. Hopefully some day I'll win the lottery and I'll be able to make another episode. I actually have the script for episode 3 all done: I wrote it on parental leave, but that also didn't last forever!
Can I ask what technology stack you used? For the images, the animations, and the voice over?
I’d like to be able to do something like this.
Edit: Just realized how similar my comment was to a neighbor comment. There must be a lot of folks pining for a better time from their past…
How did you find your narrator and how did you do your animations?
My first interaction was asking why the Nintendo logo would appear and never disappear and they immediately knew it was a rookie pitfall: I had my button inputs set to low which actually means pressed, so my emulator was resetting itself infinitely.
i've got myself a dsi and at some point plan on doing some from-scratch development for it -- that single file should be enough.
I think this document would be a great resource for me to go really to the basics and this guide is well updated too so it's a plus
