Gamekid: The Game Boy Emulator for Playdate

Hey all :wave: not too much to say other than if you’re interested in playing Game Boy games on your Playdate checkout

And feel free to join in and contribute here: GitHub - mierau/gamekid: Play Game Boy games on your Playdate.

This is a community driven project and I’m excited to see where it goes. It’s still a ways from being performant, but some games are very playable.

That’s it! Enjoy!


I am getting a download error trying to install it on the Playdate hardware.

Posted this on the Discord, but it's super neat! I would totally use my Playdate as a Pokémon or Donkey Kong Country device--haha!

Surely “Play Boy” for the name ;). Seriously, this is so cool, I can’t wait to try this out!
