Barcelona, Spain –January 11, 2021.
The independent retro games development studio Green Boy Games are today very happy and proud to announce that their retro-like fantasy adventure game “The Shapeshifter” got fully funded on Kickstarter in just 12-hours!
Furthermore, Green Boy Games has also just announced that there is now an NES stretch goal for “The Shapeshifter”. In other words, “The Shapeshifter” could end up on the NES console in the near future as well (the Game Boy version is said to be released in April this year, 2021).
The Shapeshifter puts you in the shoes of Elliot, an ordinary person who is going to spend the weekend in the mountains, who meets an elf that will grant him the power of becoming the animal he touches.

The Shapeshifter will be available in a cartridge packed in a box with a manual. The game will be fully compatible with all Game Boy, Game Boy Color and Game Boy Advance handhelds.
If the final stretch goal of €40,000 is reached on Kickstarter, The Shapeshifter will also be ported to NES.
