Deadeus by -IZMA-
Deadeus is an authentic horror Game Boy game, featuring music by Stuart Busby.
It is one of the first majorly successful homebrew games for the Game Boy made using Chris Maltby's GB Studio engine.
The game centers around a small boy who has a prophetic nightmare telling him everyone will die in 3 days and that he has to investigate his village to see how he can save them, if at all.
The game has 11 endings and no direct path leaving it up to the player to decide which is the best course of action.
"Deadeus is a masterclass in efficiency, and manages to tell a big story with delightful brevity. 9.5" - Matthew Loffhagen, Nintendo Force
"Deadeus offers some horrifying imagery despite the limitations of the Game Boy, and all while offering a tangled, frightening story that will take a great deal of work to unravel." - IndieGamePlus.com
"Deadeus does a truly charming job of being sinister" - DigitallyDownloaded.com
