There's Nothing To Do In This Town is a short RPG for the original Nintendo Game Boy set in a dystopian present featuring music snobs, zombies, and alcoholic parents. 

Available either as a Game Boy ROM for you to download to play on an emulator or flash cartridge, or here in your browser as an HTML5 game. Works pretty well in most phone browsers too.

You can play it through in under an hour. 

Inspired by my crushing depression and written during the 2020 lockdown (but before the 2020 zombie apocalypse).

Written by, and including two original chiptune pieces by donotrunwithpixels, aka Simeon Smith.


Created thanks to beautiful open tools such as GBstudio and Milkytracker.

So I can go to a coffee shop, a skateboard store, AND a record store? No, there is definitely a lot to do in this town.

I loved this game! ^^

Shh! Don't tell people there's a lot to do in this town! They'll arrive en mass with their avocado toast, and vanilla lattes and before you know it they'll have gentrified the shit out of the place! 

...glad you enjoyed the game tho! :D

Short and sweet. A neat game with zombies, quid and cats.

I feel bad for talking to the kid on the bike. I just want to be their friend, but they're apparently afraid of the main character. Anyway, this game is pretty neat. Thank you creators for sharing this with us. 

Sorry for traumatising y'all! It made you feel emotions, tho, right?

(+2)

no developer you're wrong, that must be something to do, even the town in a silent atmoshphere, that must be something to do. ( btw im enoying the vibe, thx dude >//<)

NOPE. Nothing at all to do 🤣. Thanks for your comments. Big love!!

Such cool game, and I gotta say it's so pleasing be able to play it on my phone without any download. It really made it feel I was playing on Gameboy again .

(+1)

I really like this short cute game. Since there really isn't much to do in this town, it really is quite simple to complete the objectives. All we had to do is literally check, pick up everything and talk to everyone multiple times. It was really fun and I'm glad I played it

(+1)

is it just that road? what do i do to progress? where are the lesbians? i have many questions

I really like short game, its cute.


Thank you.

I like it a lot, it's fun. I have some problems, but overall a good game. I really like the songs.

This is awesome. I got stuck right after I got the "find a zombie hunter" acheivement though

It brought me to this screen and I couldn't move

(+1)

Sorry to hear that - it should fade out automatically back into the main map. Is anyone else having this issue? If so I can check it out?

(+1)

It was so cute, thanks!

I can't believe this has now hit over 1,000 downloads! Thanks to everyone that has played, shared and donated. :D :D :D

I hate when you cannot download the game. Sorry didn't try.

(+3)

uh... you can download it. There's button right there. It says "Download Now".

I have no idea about this comment. I think I was  commenting on a browser based game on itch and had multiple tabs up or something I am dumbfounded at that. My apologies. I downloaded it before so I have no idea what I am smoking.

LESBIAN ZOMBIE HUNTERS
