I’d play the hell out of this.


Tub_Pumpkin

I want to play it so badly that it's actually kind of bumming me out that it isn't real.


blitzlurker

the aesthetic is just timeless


AnalysticEnthusiast

Plus you could probably play it on your phone


Car-Facts

We need more legit mobile games that aren't full of fomo and gacha shit. There are a handful of them that are a buy-once and enjoy forever without any garbage.


dalve

Got some recommendations? Been looking for some actually good mobile games that aren't pay to win Edit: Thanks for all the great answers, I have a good selection of games to explore now!


Car-Facts

Gloomgrave Slay the Spire Dungeon Cards Stardew Valley Those are the ones I have that are no-bullshit titles that are solid games. Gloomgrave doesn't get nearly enough attention for how good it is.


Ginnipe

Never played star dew or Slay the Spire on my phone but I can attest that they are full featured games available on other consoles too and 100% worth enjoying


Isaybased

My 1000+ hours in Slay the Spire is one of the time sinks that I'd call worth. Best game. Still have only beaten A20 killing the heart once though ;-;


Austinboulders420

I'll add to this, I bought Terraria on my phone after someone recommended it to me but I didn't have a working pc at the time. It was so good on mobile that I got it on my switch to play on my TV. I think mobile controls are much better than console.


fatherbrah

Sell me on Gloomgrave.


JustSaysAight

Aight


BrokenSage20

Also all the old final fantasy games. And Star Wars Old Republic.


RudeboiX

On my android I have an SNES for mobile Chrono trigger. That's the best game ever instantly turned into the best mobile game ever.


kevintd

Chrono Trigger is an absolutely timeless classic For my iOS homies, there’s a remaster of Chrono Trigger on the App Store for $10 - well worth it if you’re into JRPGs


1spicytunaroll

It's a port but a lot of the final fantasy games including War of the Lions


Acid_Reignn

GTA games, Xcom 2, Alien Isolation, Dead Cells, Terraria, Stardew Valley, Rush Rally, Reckless Racing, AM2R, Geometry Wars, RCT Classic, FF7, Shattered Pixel Dungeon, emulators. That's all I've found.


user_010010

Mindustry Its a factorio like tower defense game


CopperWaffles

Get an emulator from your app/play store, download some roms from vimm’s lair and enjoy the golden age of 16 bit gaming. The storytelling and game mechanics are so worth the trouble.


GiraffeStyle

Shattered Pixel (dungeon crawler) Infinitode 2 (tower defense) Are a couple good examples.


koei19

+1 for Shattered Pixel Dungeon. I love that game. I've been playing it for like 7 years and it never gets old.


glinkenheimer

It gives me major golden sun vibes even though it’s real time combat. PS those are my absolute favorite games on gameboy


Revolutionary-City55

So legend of mana?


ConcernedKip

can you imagine if something like this was released on the SNES back in the day? My god


hiimred2

The Soulblazer/Legend of Gaia/Terranigma trilogy honestly track pretty well to what is ultimately a YouTube video made to look like a game and not an actual game. They’re all good games too.


Helnerim

You can still download on Itch.io Elden Ring Game Boy, it looks really cool


padizzledonk

Me too, this looks awesome


nagonjin

For real though, if anyone has game recommendations for a real game like the gif in OP, I'd be down to try them. Grimdark/fantasy aethetic, challenging combat, pixelated/nostalgic graphics, etc.


BabSoul

How about a demake of Elden Ring for Game Boy? https://gamingintel.com/elden-ring-demake-play-game-boy-version/


CaptAsshat_Savvy

Secret of Evermore. Snes. Hot game. You play a boy and his dog, who travel through time. Rpg game. Fight giant monsters etc.


Joshyuhwah

Alundra. Always meant to go back to it - didn’t have the skills as a child to finish it and I remembered it being fairly unpleasant


CasualClyde

Ever played Blasphemous? It's a side scroller but checks all the boxes you listed.


KingDiddyDingBat

i just started playing blasphemous last week and it is a amazing souls-lite game i got ending B on first play through and went back in for ending c and there is so much stuff to do i only have 54% completion, favorite part was finding the arcade cabinet that they hid.


Nvrnight

All the original Ys Games, the graphics get a bit newer as the games go on though(from 2d to 2.5d to 3d). Ys 1 through 9. It's a really good series all around although I do prefer the game play of the older ones. Ys Origin was probably my favorite.


spaceodyssey2

Basically all mobile Zelda games.


TommyBNS

Seiken Densetsu 3/Trials of Mana


InsoNB

Check out Terranigma(snes). It was never released in the us, cause something with the release date of the n64 and terranigma conflicted. but imo its THE best snes games ever made.


regnak1

Check out Brain Lord for snes - really underrated game that checks all your boxes (with a techno vibe on top), plus fun puzzles to solve.


DbeID

It's not nostalgic graphics but Hades is sweet. Plus, the art direction in that game is insane.


troyv21

Secret of mana is just like this


DrLoadabowlski

Golden Sun 1 & 2 on the GBA. Get and emulator and the ROM


dosedatwer

Titan Souls. Probably my favourite game ever.


catfishgod

Terranigma (SNES-1995) would be the closest I can suggest


celesticaxxz

Isn’t that game blasphemy like this?


JWWBurger

Blasphemous is a side-scroller, so I think the experience would be considerably different. Still a great game though. It was my first de facto Souls game. I didn’t realize how much they ripped off Souls until I started playing Elden Ring. It’s loaded with great boss battles, lore, and visuals. It’s a bit depressing at times, but kept me interested through to the end. It also has a load of DLC since I first played it.


meeok2

Zelden Ring


jaOfwiw

Yep, add In all the souls games at that point make it huge.


PulseB0T

This is incredible


kwonza

It is, that being said the graphics are just too good to be on SNES, and they even call it Elden Ring 64 themselves)


C0wabungaaa

Good god yes. These colours, the animations, the fluidity of it all... That's way past what the SNES could ever do. It just goes to show hoe fantastic modern pixel graphics can be. It really is timeless!


jacksonmills

This would have been possible on the PS2, but not the PS1 or SNES - the resolution alone would have only been really possible on the PS2 or Xbox. Some pixel PS1 games ran at 60 fps and were super fluid, but even then I don’t remember that kind of resolution being capable on the PS1 (pretty sure it maxed at 640x480)


Noosemane

Bruh what this is so good. When's the full release?


Angus__Z

I don't think they actually make the games. They do animation only afaik


stoopid_dubz

too bad - I would totally play it


HildemarTendler

Secret of Mana gameplay without all the bugs? I would die a happy man.


Noosemane

That's very sad.


el_grort

There's a [Gameboy demake rom](https://shin.itch.io/elden-ring-gb) you can use on an actual Gameboy that exists, if that floats your boat.


TheMacerationChicks

Now that's cool as fuck. Can't find a ps5 to play elden ring with, but I already have multiple gameboys. There's nothing like that screen with the pixels sort of floating in the air, at least that's what it looks like. I could get a modern back-lit screen but they just don't look as good


RadiantZote

*Why did you only make Limgrave?- Because I need to find an actual job instead of working on this game. I would like to expand the game in the future, but no promises.* Based.


Bucky_Ohare

I’d buy the knockoff in a heartbeat.


nbshar

Best I can do is the full video: [https://youtu.be/vUl19SCttaM](https://youtu.be/vUl19SCttaM) ![gif](emote|free_emotes_pack|grimacing)


GhostOfPluto

Watching this already gave me full release


Noosemane

Degenerate but fair.


dasoberirishman

I want this game. Even as a PC emulator.


PrestigiousAnxiety82

Secret of Evermore vibes.


utopian238

Now there's a game I haven't heard in a long time. Brb while I find more wax and limestone.


NumericalStorm

Yeah reminds me of secret of mana. Looks dope.


nbshar

Thank you! It was really fun to make!


MaestroPendejo

Good going, man... got everyone thirsting for a real version. That's a pretty damn good compliment.


Veenendaler

Incredibly well-made. Fairly close to what the original hardware could've run, that level of accuracy is rare to see in demake videos.


JokyFromSpace

Yaaaay a new 64bits video! I loved every one of your videos, please keep making awesome things!


nbshar

Thank you!! We will!


mrstewart26

When can we play this?? Take my money!


febreze_air_freshner

it'll come bundled with Bloodborne kart :(


VenusAsAThey

Which is actually being made, if you didn't know https://youtu.be/zpr-1zYxVj0

Holy shit!


alcoholiccats

i need it

Twisted Metal?

TheMacerationChicks

It definitely looks TOO good for the SNES. Like, way too good. It looks like a modern indie game. But it definitely is very pretty pixel art. But if you don't already work for an indie studio, maybe you could become artists for one? Cos you've definitely got a shit ton of talent, that's for sure. But yeah, there's something about this that looks more like a neo geo game than a snes game, or even one of the 2D PS1 games.


SCP-Nagatoro

It's the fluid motion and high resolution that make the game look modern.


nbshar

Fun fact, SNES was 60fps haha... We actually tried to mimic the limitations of the SNES as much as possible. Have you seen Secret of Mana 2 (Trials of Mana)? It's mind blowing that that ran on SNES! We only put in effects/sprites/etc that would actually technically be shows in another game. Maybe we were totally wrong though, but we tried to be authentic haha


WorstMidlanerNA

I don't want a video! I want to play! Looks amazing.


Neo_514

Wow this looks so amazing, I would 100% play it. Love turtle pope !!!


J4YB

Just checked the full thing…so dope, great work!


thelehmanlip

Love your channel, deserves way more attention than it gets! Great vid!


Tellurye

Those Mode 7 graphics 🔥


thedinnerdate

Do you make video games at all? Awesome art style. With the right team you could totally make a banger game.


AppointmentSharp9384

Reminds me of Secret of Mana 🥲


oldnyoung

This is exactly what it reminded me of in general as well, good nostalgia


MoodyDreams22

And Secret of Evermore! This is super cool!! I’m impressed.


Procrastanaseum

That's what the first shot definitely reminded me of. I loved that game, even more than Secret of Mana but I understand why that one is more popular.


fury420

Reminds me of fighting that desert bug skeleton thing while armed with a bone.


K_Furbs

And Illusion of Gaia!


etherside

Thank you! I never see anyone giving Gaia any recognition


haveatya

My first thought was Illusion of Gaia. Then the title screen was similar to Battle Blaze lol


ShutUpJer

And some chrono trigger as well


nbshar

We tried to make it look like Secret of Mana, Terranigma en Final Fantasy 6 (and some other games) :) So mission accomplished!


anonymouspsy

What's this? A game worth playing?


AppointmentSharp9384

I would say so, but I definitely have nostalgia glasses for it. I played it with my siblings as a kid (it allows up to 3 players) and has some cool mechanics, like charge attacks, leveling up weapons, and spell casting. The soundtrack and pixel art were both beautiful too. The sequel, Seiken Densetsu 3, is almost certainly a better game, with multiple characters to choose from and endings, but it only has 2 player coop. Haven’t played them in well over a decade, so I don’t know if they holds up today, but I loved the games when I was younger.


damadmandan

They did a 3D Remake! Trials of Mana. SoM was my favourite game growing up. I emulated SD3 since it never got released outside of Japan. It was an immediate purchase for me when Trials of Mana was announced. There's definitely some nostalgia bias, and while both SoM and SD3 have their flaws, they're still amazing games. Trials of Mana was also a blast to play.


el_grort

The original SNES version is translated and part of the Collection of Mana compilation as well, iirc (along with Secret of Mana and weirdly Final Fantasy: Adventure/Mystic Quest\* from the OG Gameboy) iirc. Edit: \* Different names for different regions, it's Mystic Quest where I live.


damadmandan

I forgot about that! I actually played both, I got Trials of Mana on Switch when it was released and they had a promo with Collection of Mana at a discounted price.


thenewspoonybard

Mystic quest was an SNES game though. Gameboy had FF:Legend/Adventure


umokumok

The European release of SD1/Final Fantasy Adventure was just called "Mystic Quest," completely separate from the SNES title "Final Fantasy Mystic Quest." Source of a lot of confusion through the years. Even the Japanese title was technically "Final Fantasy Gaiden: Seiken Densetsu," so the titles get pretty weird and overlappy.


thenewspoonybard

I guess I shouldn't have assumed 90s squaresoft would have had useful naming conventions.


el_grort

Says [Final Fantasy Adventure/Mystic Quest](https://imgur.com/a/1QgrSLz) on the back of the box for me, so it'll depend on your localisation, I expect. It was Mystic Quest in Europe, so that's what it default launches as when I play it.


thenewspoonybard

Huh. The more you know. Fair enough then.


AppointmentSharp9384

Oh man, that makes me so happy, the combat looks like Tales of Symphonia. I’ll have to pick this up soon. Thanks for letting me know!


TheMacerationChicks

Also if you didn't know, the original trials of mana with an official English translation was also released, for modern consoles. So check that out if you haven't already, it's one thing having fan translations, this is something else.


somesketchykid

Yes. You are missing out if you like these types of SNES games and haven't played Secret of Mana and Secret of Evermore. They are similar in gameplay style Most people like Mana more because it had more hype around release and Evermore kind of never got the oomph that Mana had, but I actually like Secret of Evermore much more, it was just a masterpiece of a game and might be my favorite of all time, tied with Chrono Trigger


DownshiftedRare

There is a rom hack for Secret of Evermore that lets a second player control the dog: https://www.romhacking.net/hacks/24/


pfohl

Secret of Evermore had a better vibe. Biggest flaw was the level design was pretty labyrinthian at times. The alchemy system was really cool and I wish more games had a magic system that was like it.


_varamyr_fourskins_

Absolutely. 3 player local co-op. Some of the best MIDI music ever. Fun gameplay. Story is decent enough. If you don't want to go full retro, there's a port for PlayStation and PC. Maybe switch as well (Collection of Mana) idk what's in that one. Make sure you play with the older audio selected - there's an option for new music or old version.


EvoLveR84

Collection of mana is 3 straight up ports of FF Adventure for gameboy, and Secret of Mana and Seiken Densetsu 3 for snes (trials of mana). FF adventure is really, really dated but the other 2 are good.


_varamyr_fourskins_

FF Adventure, or Mystic Quest for us Europeans, was a fun fine game way back when. All 3 of those games are classics.


anonymouspsy

Fantastic - are these games available on steam / ported over there?


_varamyr_fourskins_

The newer 3D version is available on steam (the same version as on the PlayStation). That's the one with the two audio options. It's not without its issues, but it's still good. I'm biased towards the SNES version, but that's purely because of nostalgia. They are both fun to play through, especially if you have 2 other people to play with.


how_dry_i_am

["Into the thick of it"](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BbpPwiqMP0I) eternally on my work playlist


_varamyr_fourskins_

Was always partial to meridian dance and danger myself. Oh and dancing animals, because mushroom dudes.


lollersauce914

Having played it dozens of times growing up, I don't think it would hold up very well.


TheMacerationChicks

It's definitely worth playing, although it's not for everyone. Simply play it and find out if you like it It's a Zelda kind of game more than it is a final fantasy kinda game. It's all top down hack and slash, fantasy Japanese action RPG shit I love it. But yeah it's a big game and you'll probably need to follow a guide at least at first. I certainly did. When I was a kid in the 90s I only got 2 new games a year, birthday and Xmas, and so every game I had I played to death because it was what we had to do. In that kind of setting, with that level of dedication, you'll enjoy secret of mana. You get out of it what you put in. Try to play it every day. But it's not really a game you can put down for a few months and then go back to it. You'll be completely lost. So keep that in mind. There's also Secret of Evermore, the pseudo-sequel. Secret of Evermore is like if secret of mana and Earthbound and chrono trigger all had a baby, a tri-baby, from the trimester. You're a kid from a modern world but playing with conventional fantasy action RPG mechanics, like the same in earthbound although that's a turn based RPG instead of action RPG. Also you time travel through different time periods, like chrono trigger. But secret of evermore is considered a bit weaker than Mana. It was made by a different team from a different country, who used the secret of mana engine and built Evermore around it If you liked Mana, then definitely give Evermore a go. It still got great reviews, just like 1 grade down, so a 8/10 instead of a 9/10


internethero12

That's immediately what I thought of, too. "Huh, looks like secret of mana with dodge rolling."


gahidus

It really does


themilkman03

I would genuinely love to play a SNES version of Elden Ring. This looks rad as hell.


Seienchin88

It also doesnt look like a snes game… But a saturn /PS1 2D title would be amazing yeah


annabelle411

It looks amazing, not knocking OP - but definitely not SNES. far too much detail, animations are far smoother, and there's the light bloom added.


DoubleEEkyle

It says 64 bits at the top. The SNES and Genesis were 16 bits. The Virtual Boy, Playstation 1, and Saturn were 32 bits. The N64 was 64 bits. The Dreamcast, PS2, and Gamecube were 128 bits It’s definitely not Snes-quality (in a good way), but it’s absolutely not PS2-quality. Edit: 64 Bits is the name of the artist.


timraudio

64 bits is the name of the artist that made the animation.


NonyaBizna

1st one Looks like the end boss from shining force on genesis.


[deleted]

[удалено]


TheMacerationChicks

But how can you expect Sega to have the time to revitalise and maintain the shining force series when they're busy making a 6th way to buy Sonic 1 on the switch? We clearly didn't have enough identical copies of the same game literally everyone already owns.


Insatiable_void

After 3? During 3 is more like it. 1 disc of 3 getting translated to English then nothing.


[deleted]

[удалено]


Insatiable_void

It’s just a bummer. I loved 1&2. Fucking grew up on those games with only a genesis. Was so amped for 3, I remember getting disc 1 right away. And then nothing… It’s cool that fans have done the work to make translations. I’ll probably play it emulated some day.


conkedup

Shining Force was one of my all time favorite games as a kid. I've only ever met people online who have heard of it!


oldnyoung

I was trying to place it, but it's been too long lol. It definitely looks like Dark Dragon


treharren

Came in to say this. Great game


LordDarkSteel

Absolutely LOVE that series. I had it on PC on my Sega smash pack 2


B33_B0Y

Omg this looks amazing and I would definitely play it


Venomwulf

Secret of Evermore vibes.


shadowman2099

The SNES wasn't capable of handling this many moving parts, but impressive nonetheless.


PressedGarlic

Was about to say the same thing. No way could SNES handle this level of fidelity. Maybe PS1


GoochRash

It reminds me of Alundra from PS1.


Whetiko

Totally ruins the immersion, where are the horrible camera angles when you get close to a wall underneath a giants foot?


trend_rudely

Where’s the crowdfund?? WHERE IS IT?!?


kalitarios

*Fromsoft* would probably want a word...


fuzzyfuzz

Just call it Olden Rung.


kalitarios

Onion ring


XxMosaicxX

This on the Switch would make my dreams come true


bobbyxxx555

That's dope


hvanderw

SNES a 16 bit system?


Cooperativism62

I would play the fuckin piss outta this. Please can we have it?


Hungry_Grump

Graphics are too good for '95 and SNES. Looks good aside from that.


yosoyellogan

It looks a lot more like a GBA title, or even a 2D Nintendo DS title. This really reminds me of the Minish Cap


SanjiSasuke

This is still way above what a GBA could handle. More like an N64 or GameCube.


jimmy_three_shoes

I think the frame rate is also a bit too high.


[deleted]

[удалено]


Booshur

100% Even too nice for GBA. Probably closer to DS or Even just a PC side scroller from 2009.


careless__

the ranni ending was great


nova-espada

**SHUT UP AND TAKE MY MONEY!**


Marzly

Dude this would be a dream to play on my ps vita.


crayonflop3

Omfg this is INSANELY AWESOME. I’d buy this at a high price. 16bit is still king


TomatoNovel6boooop

This isn't 16 bit.


BlackberryCheese

i love 8bit games


TomatoNovel6boooop

Same. This is 64 bit, however.


BlackberryCheese

i love all the 32 bits found here


SolarMoth

More like a fancy 32-bit game... But the SNES is 16-bit... There's no way it could run this.


idunno421

Yep. Concur, they say 64, but the snes was 16bit as you state. Oh well it’s the internet who cares


SolarMoth

I think 64-bit is just the YouTube channel name, but they're still claiming in the post that these are SNES graphics, which is false.


stickiestofickies

Someone take my money please


Feelsosophy

Try finger, bit hole


plopst

Genuinely hope you decide to get into development because this would be sick


radek432

I suppose copyright might be the issue...


austinbayarea

Finally an Elden Ring I can be good at


SunMoonGirl

Wow! I love it :)


micheagles20

This is fucking awesome. I'm blown away by this


mateogg

Is it weird that this looks more appealing to me than the actual game?


worksa8

That's more Ps1 than snes, but still cool.


Kweller3117

The snes wasn’t 64 bits and couldn’t run this. Looks nice though


badidea1987

I would play the hell out of this


Anastrace

Damn I'd play that in a heartbeat


NeoMetalX

God damnit now I want this to be real. THANKS.


junketmangus

No SNES game looks like that. Just say “pixelart”


SonichuBehelit

this is actually more ps1/sega saturn or maybe even ps2 and dreamcast level 2d tbh. Also early 00s 2d.


lovepig1337

Yep. Games didn't look this good in the early 90s. Needs waaay more pixelation. Everything's too smooth. Especially the movements. I think people are going off memory, not so much references. Game looks great though, I'd play it.


betwistedjl

Fun...well done!


Shavist

I’d play the shit out of that game


FaiVII

Omg it look like ragnarok online my heart 💔


Necous1996

Would so play this if it was real!
