      Wow that was a quick find: although its not game boy

      Its for Game Boy Advance
      http://sourceforge.net/projects/devkitadv/

      game boy development kit
      http://gbdk.sourceforge.net/

      However those both use C to develop the games so Maybe see who can create the Best R*M Hack (Patch files only)

      I started a gameboy game for LD23 but due to real life responsiblities never finished it, here was what I got in about 5 or 6 hours

      dl.dropbox.com/u/8258428/ld23.gb

      basically, sign me up.

      I used GBDK and wrote the game from scratch, spent most of that time working on the tiles for the title screen than coding :P

      Hi,
      i developed 3-5 years on the gba/nds. They are great console to play with and you can find many emulators.
      If i remember right you can easily setup http://sourceforge.net/projects/devkitpro/files/ to write something for your gba/nds. gba and nds have a lot more cool stuff than the GB && i can’t remember if you can also deploy on the Game boy with the devkitpro. Anyway, hope this help && hope to see some hard-dev post a game for this platform in the future.

      Bye

      If you want to develop for the original Gameboy (in Assembly), there is a great and pratical lecture from the Wichita State University (http://cratel.wichita.edu/cratel/ECE238Spr08) on it. I used it to learn the platform and really liked it.
      If you want to run the compiler, emulator, etc on the Mac, I wrote a quick post about it here: http://38leinad.wordpress.com/2012/03/03/gameboy-development-on-mac-os-x/
