It’s time for a new Game Boy adventure

Kudzu is a non-linear adventure game for Game Boy inspired by a real-life encounter with an invasive plant species. You are Max, the apprentice gardener, on an epic journey through fields, gardens, forests, villas, and mountains covered in kudzu; a plant known for its ability to grow quickly and choke out other species.


The game is heavily inspired by Game Boy classics such as The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening. Kudzu offers you the chance to explore a world full of secrets, strange and useful characters, and twisted creatures lurking in the kudzu; such as snakes, giant insects, living plants, and other monstrosities.

To make your way through the kudzu, you’ll need to master a variety of gardening tools, such as the machete, hoe, and rake. Each tool has its own advantages and disadvantages, and you’ll have to use them wisely to solve puzzles and deal with enemies.

A must for all retro lovers!

According to the devs, Kudzu has been tested on Game Boy hardware and peripherals to ensure compatibility, including the original Game Boy, Game Boy Pocket, Game Boy Color, Game Boy Advance, Super Game Boy, and newer devices such as the Analogue Pocket.

Here at Game Freaks 365, we love these retro projects! The technology of retro consoles has a unique essence, which we can never let loose. That’s why seeing small teams betting to keep bringing projects to these consoles is so important! Not only to please retro gamers but also to make this kind of game known to new generations.

Kudzu’s Kickstarter is on the verge of reaching the $45K goal to bring the game to Nintendo Switch. If Kudzu caught your attention, click here and check out the game’s Kickstarter!
