The Bicycle and the Rosebed is a cute adventure game about being a University student between semesters. Exploring the town and helping the townsfolk is the only aim of the game. Don't forget where you left your bike, because it will help you get around faster!

Made in GB Studio, this game will be playable on Game Boy devices. Depending on your feedback and my plans, this game may become a lot larger than this small development build.

Thank you so much for your time, if you would like to know more about the development of this game I will be uploading videos about it to my YouTube channel

Cute, I look forward to the game being expanded. Very well done.

Thank you so much!!

Is this demo just for browser play or I am just not seeing the gb file to donload?

The demo is just for browser right now. I will make the next version a gb file!

The idea of jumping on a bike and going to different places is brilliant, very clever! I've made an awful lot of GB Studio games, but actually the point of all of them was not to be a walking and talking game, there are already a lot of them. However, with the mini-games you can throw one of these up, this is also proof of that. We need more of these. :) Congratulations.

Thank you! I agree there are a lot of walking and talking games, but I think it's because GB Studio does it so well! It's nice not to be fighting against the engine like I have in other games. The small mini-game is a fun bonus to vary the gameplay (and development)
Thank you for taking the time to test it out!

The penguin min-game would be an interesting starting point for a stand-alone game, and/or as a Pico-8 game!

I agree, I will probably put it up on itch as it's own thing. Thank you for playing!

Filled in the feedback form. Great foundation you've built here; the world itself is really well constructed, it just needs more to interact with and do whilst you explore it.

I really appreciate you taking the time to fill it in, I definitely think that will improve it! As the creator, I know exactly what there is to find and do, so getting another perspective is invaluable. Thank you so much!
