Yeah, I felt like creating a demake for some popular 3D game, and for some reason, I went for Kingdom Hearts. At first I tried do it NES style, but couldn't get a good color-scheme going. So I went all "Screw them colors! I'm doing it gameboy style!" It went surprisngly good, but towards the end I decided to speed things up and skip some details.

Yeah, and those sprites are supposed to be Sora and Riku. Hope they are readable.

in normal size, and x2 because I just felt like it.

Sora and Riku belong to Squenix, but these sprites are custom made by me, so no stealing.

I looked at this again and it made me smile. Just loving the Gameboy nostalgia, the background sprites are really cool. It's amazing how such a simple sand tile pattern is so effective!

this looks really good!  how is the project going?  email me at  I've been messing around with this style of art lately.  let me know if I can give you a hand in any way.  never made this type of mod but it looks like it could be challenging and fun!

I think a PS1 demkae would be more fitting.

Very cool! I wondered what KH would look like on an earlier game system. This reminds me somewhat of Goof Troop for the SNES, which had Zelda-like gameplay.

This looks awesome. I've been downloading and looking at demakes a lot lately.
In fact I'm making my own > [link]

This is a great idea. You should totally make something like this on a ROM or in Game Maker or something, I'd play it.

Thanx. If I had the time, I'd love to make a game out of this. But that won't be happening anytime soon, I'm afraid. But there's always future projects... :)

The beach reminds me a bit of Link's Awakening. =)
Nice sprite remakes! Wonder how the battles would work on the GB, though...
BG87's avatar
Yeah it probably wouldn't work at all, unless they made it just like Links Awakening. One button for keyblade attack and the other for whatever skill you set to it(guard/dodge roll). Hold them for a few seconds to use special attacks.

Hey, it could actually work...:)

The music would take a hit, although I'd love to hear some KH tunes on a gameboy sound chip :D

I'm kind of thinking the game would work better as a 2D platformer. (Or maybe something like Adventure of Link or, to a lesser extent, Four Swords Adventures.)

But nice pixel art!

And Select to set the command from Attack to Magic or Items.
