Gurbs is a gnome that lives in the Little Tree Forrest. He wakes up to a squirrel taking his hat, the adventure begins! 

I made some tutorials for GB Studio, the tool I used. If you'd like me to finish the game and make more tutorials let me know!

My current project is a tower defense dungeon crawler Dwerve!

Awesome! You're tutorials helped me alot!

Hello, you can put the .gb file pls? I wish play this game in my GBA


You can export it after downloading but sure I will do it in the future when I get a chance. 

OK thank you


i got trapped after using the menu button xD 

I will update the game soon but Im still working on "Dwerve"

Follow you on your YT ;) Cheers from Chile!


Hey! I've been following you make this on youtube and even though it's been a few years it'd be cool to see you finish this, maybe making new tutorials too!


This is so charming. Nice pixel arts. Been following it on YouTube. Thank you so much for the tutorials and please finish this. This would be damn sexy on the Analogue Pocket!

Best GBS Game Ever.

I dig it.

yo I just got gb studio and I watched a couple of your tutorials. Really appreciate them. I do have a couple of recommendations for this game though. Could you change the sound for the game? The current sound honesty kind of bothers my ears, especially since I’m using earbuds. Second, could you put an interactive sprite or something in the fishing area so you don't have to take a step back and walk to the pier again? That would be fantastic. Great game though. I would highly recommend finishing it. I would love to see king squirrel’s castle :D

I was told you should finish this game! Also I like this game and you should finish it! I would love to see that snowy mountain some day ⛄️


this game is fun! dont finish it!


this game fun! Please finish it!

Finish it, dawg

Hope you finish the game after Dwerve! Thanks for the fun time!


your GB studios tutorials helped me with my work in progress game, The Pointless Knight.  Great Game, and Great Videos!

Nice job


An NPC told me to pass this quest onto you: Finish this game. Will you accept this quest, adventurer?
By the way I'm SamSibbens, you left smiley faces as comments on two of my videos :D

I upgraded to Beta 2.0 and it's completely worth it - you can stick to the original Gameboy color palette if you want or you can "paint a palette" over tiles to change their colors. A lot of things work better too. I also made an "image splitter", I can feed it a giant image and it will split it into all the backgrounds required for my game, and named properly like overworld-y3-x7

I didn't even know about GB Studio, I came to your pixel tutorials and saw GB Studio tutorials as a playlist, that's how I found out about it. So thanks!




This game is cute and the graphics are awesome. I’d like to see you finish itA

Also an NPC told me to bug you about that...

Awesome art and game, really appreciate all the youtube tutorials!

Your work inspires me so much!! I watch your YouTube videos on GB Studio on repeat. 

Keep making amazing art and games.

Hi! i have a very dumb problem i hope you can help me with, i'm really new with GB sutdio and i want to learn how to put two rooms togheter, thank you <3!

I made this from a blank layer I made from your Gurbs Adventure, cause I loaded your game in GB Studio 2 as a way to learn to use it and just swap things, and when I used this as the logo it said somethin about too many 8x8px details but it hardly has any detail... what did I do wrong?

ps. whilte its using that image the game won't run


nevermind, I figured it out, lol I had created new scenes for my art but didn't realize how to properly set them as the ones being used

This game has a lot of potentinal 

this is so fun omg


I can't wait to meet King Squirrel!

(1 edit)

found a glitch where i can get out of the map, hit enter then z very fast in succession and it teleports you and puts you outside the map

thanks for the work, this inspired me !!!

i just attacked the squirrel  and it went from 30hp to 1hp to 252hp 

maybe a little weird

haha whoops

The explanation on why that happens is on his videos, and even the fix, but I guess this version isn't updated.

I collected one cats. You crack me up.

Really helpful tutorials and good loking arts :)


Hey man, I want to thank you for your tutorials. I'm watching them and they really help! I wanted to ask you if you could make a video showing how to make a character walk around and if you are in their line of sight they come to you and do whatever (talk, attack, etc.)

I'm trying to make a "don't be spotted" game, but so far I can make a character run to you if they are just standing, not walking around. It must be hard, but if you could make a tutorial for that, that would be awesome!


sure dude ill make that 

Awesome!! I like your channel, keep those videos coming! :D



Your tutorials are great! 

Can't wait to play the finished game C:
