Title: Gameboy Advance Micro Console
Date Completed: June 2018
Design: Lord Libidan
Game: Nintendo Gameboy Advance
The best place to start with this project is how it came about. I had created a Nintendo N64 Micro Console Cross Stitch and had intended to create a classic Gameboy in the same scale (which I later did), however instead created the Gameboy Color Micro Console Cross Stitch as it was more visually interesting. However, my memory of the Gameboy was firmly set on the Gameboy Advance.
This new challenge was actually more interesting than it sounds, as along with creating a smaller Gameboy, a Gameboy on a different orientation, and a Gameboy with shoulder buttons, I also had to create smaller games that would still play the larger variants. Choosing the launch purple, I created something that works well, but not perfectly. In the future, I think an additional ‘step’ on the back will allow you to get Gameboy Advance games out easier.
This project grew in size and before I submitted the idea to the Xstitch Mag, I had created the classic Gameboy, Gameboy Color Micro Console Cross Stitch, Nintendo DS and the Nintendo Switch, all in microform.
