Penrose - A Game Boy/Flash Era-Style Horror Game

Hey all! I've got a strange little psychological horror game coming out 10/1 that I'm pretty excited about. Here's the itch page for it, and I'll put a few GIFs below too.

It's about memory, identity, and finding your way out. Inspiration-wise, I leaned pretty hard into my love of old exploration-heavy Game Boy games and weird flash era creations on Newgrounds and Albino Blacksheep.

I just recently made a devlog that dives further into the inspirations/origins of the game. You can read it here if you're in the mood for some wild west era internet nostalgia.

I've also got a super short trailer that shows off some of the chiptune music that my partner designed for it. Really excited to share the finished game with you all!
