[Good read] “POKEGB: a gameboy emulator that only plays Pokémon blue”

But first, let’s talk a little about some statistics. The final version in that tweet is actually 68 lines of code (I tweeted the wrong number!), each line less than 150 characters long, for a total of 9956 bytes. If you ignore whitespace and comments, it comes to 4720 bytes. That’s too large for the International Obfuscated C Code Contest, but pretty close.

This is quite an in-depth post on making an absurdly-compact new GB emulator. Making one is actually a lot of fun and I recommend the coders out there give it a try. 🙂
