“Playable Quotes for Game Boy” from Joël Franušić and Adam Smith was AWESOME!
This project offers the ability to create and share playable quotes of Game Boy games. A playable quote is a self-contained slice of an original creative work that points to a specific moment in the space of play along with a reference performance of how that moment can play out. The reader of a quote can replay their own variations on the quoted moment to see how the game responds.
Being able to capture a portion of a rom file that ships with the only the bits (pun) needed for others to see/experience was something I had never thought about. They’re not stopping with Game Boy either, there are talks of N64 and a few proof-of-concepts with x86 PC games.
The project homepage is here and I highly recommend checking out this Google Maps-like tour of Metroid II where the little plot point even traces along the map as you watch!
