So usually people might use an assembler (and in terms of Game Boy, Dylan Cuthbert recently mentioned on his Twitter; games were 'compiled into one blot of code'; you don't usually have an extractable file system once it's compiled or you have to disassemble the game); or some ambitious people might even program directly from machine code (not Game Boy but I think the maker of Rollercoaster Tycoon did this).
I found an interesting tool called GB Studio that lets you create a Game Boy game with WYSIWYG elements, which sounds fun and different to things like RPG Maker, Game Maker, Unity, and the programming languages like C, Python, etc.
Now, it has limits; so far it seems restricted to its engine and certain types of games. It seems appealing though because you could mix and match some things, compile a GB ROM (which the program supports), copy/paste parts using a hex editor and write your own code for other parts.
nocturnal YL: In a way, I'm glad I'm unrelated to those fan communities of the games I play. I just sit back and play games casually, not really caring whatever scandals or elitism or holier-than-thou attitudes going on.

Shrikeswind: I think I need to track down some horribly cursed Pokemon content now after that. You know, since that was such a heavy topic to drop in the middle of a quiet forum.

Nester the Lark: Also, I know YL isn't into speedruns, but he might be interested to know that RPG Limit Break is having a Gust marathon all weekend, including several Atelier games.

nocturnal YL: Ah… Bad timing. I didn't read this until now, when it's almost over.

Nester the Lark: Well, if you're still interested, they'll be uploading the replays to their YouTube channel later this week.

Shrikeswind: I like that Mayles put her back in her kneepads. What's the last game they were in? One of the Kongas? It was a good look for her, albeit very 90's.

Shrikeswind: The jokes call to me, their siren song a temptation I can hardly bear, yet I must stay my tongue. Confound my dirty sense of humor.

Nester the Lark: The replies I see to anything Nintendo posts on Twitter are probably an indication as to why they abandoned Miiverse and decided that social media should be someone else's responsibility.
