Introducing MahPicoBoi

Hey there, it’s been a hot minute, hasn’t it?

Well, as I’ve already explained in my last post, life has developed a certain fondness for keeping me busy these recent months. Regardless, I’ve tried staying busy in one productive form or another, and today, I’d like to officially announce the most recent fruit of my labor:

If you’ve read any of my recent blog posts, or if you’ve listened to me bitch and moan over on my streams, you’ll probably know that I’ve been working on a Bachelor’s degree in Game Engineering for the last seven semesters. Not any longer, though, since I’m now finally done with it! As you could have guessed from the title of this post, the end result of all this stress and very many restless nights calls itself “MahPicoBoi”.

MahPicoBoi is a Raspberry Pi Pico based MIDI interface for your Nintendo Game Boy. If those words don’t mean anything to you: Don’t worry, there’s a video that goes through what the MahPicoBoi is and what exactly it does in great detail. You can watch it over on my YouTube Account by clicking the link below.

If this video has made you interested in building your own MahPicoBoi, you can find a Step-by-Step Build Guide over here or by clicking the “MahPicoBoi” link at the top right of this website. Additionally, there was another short demonstration of MahPicoBoi via the Game Boy’s 3.5 mm Aux Port in my last livestream, VOD here, and the source code and prebuilt uf2 files are available over at my GitHub Page.

Thanks for sticking with me during the lull of the last month and a half. Now that the MahPicoBoi development is finally coming to an end, I hope that I can re-focus my attention to the comic and Rykani-Cast. There’ll be a new comic page out by next week, and a fresh episode of the Rykani-Cast should also follow soon. And, yes, I also haven’t forgotten about my commitment to starting Ask a Ryka this month. Oh, and the short story as well…

Well, looks like busy times are ahead. I should probably get going now before I have to find another excuse for my chronic missing of deadlines. So, how about you have the greatest of all days, and I’ll have a good night’s rest in turn. See you soon!
