murder mystery adventure Pine Creek Game Boy Color preorder Incubate8 Games Spacebot Interactive, Carmelo Electronics

Publisher Incube8 Games, games producer Spacebot Interactive, and Carmelo Electronics have announced that new Game Boy Color game Pine Creek is available to preorder in physical standard and collector’s editions as of 2:00 p.m. ET. Pine Creek is a murder mystery adventure intended for an adult audience, where you play as the best friend of a girl who has disappeared in a small town and there is suspicion that a cult is ritual killing people. But despite all that, the game is summarized somewhat cutely: “Have friends, think about life, think about death, eat tasty food, and play games in the arcade!”

Pine Creek was built using GB Studio and supports English, Spanish, and Portuguese. It is also fully compatible with (notably) Game Boy, Game Boy Color, and Game Boy Advance, and one playthrough should take three-to-four hours. Below is what comes with Pine Creek in its standard and collector’s editions, if you decide to preorder. The game is intended to launch in October.

Incube8 Games is all about retro gaming as a publisher, and we covered its work before with another release, Infinity, an unreleased Game Boy Color RPG. And incidentally, earlier today we reported on Game Boy-to-PC adapter GB Operator, which also features GB Studio functionality.
