So the big video game of the first few months of 2022, Elden Ring, has already seen the demake treatment this year in the form of a lovely-looking PlayStation recreation (which our friends at Push Square covered). But that was just the trailer. Someone has been brave enough to make a playable demake of FromSoftware's absolute masterpiece — but not on the hardware you were expecting.

On Reddit, user -shin- has shared a project that they're currently working on — a fully-playable demake of Elden Ring for Game Boy. Created using GB Studio 3.0, they plan to at least finish up to the end of the Limgrave area by the end of May. We can't imagine they'll recreate the entire game (have you seen how big Elden Ring is), but that would be mighty impressive?

-shin- has got pretty much everything down, from the dodge rolling to the "You Died" text on the screen. It's an extremely faithful recreation of the beginning of the game. And -shin- confirmed that this demake will be playable on original hardware. Well, time to die over and over again on the ol' grey brick.

This isn't the first FromSoftware game to receive the demake treatment, either. Bloodborne — you know, yet another critically lauded brilliant action RPG — also got a PS1 demake called Bloodborne PSX which Push Square also covered. But, even more amazing than that, the same developers created Bloodborne Kart. Yes, really.

There are plans for a demo to be released at the end of May, but to keep up with its development, you can follow -shin-'s Twitch channel or check out their YouTube.
