    How hard would it be to create an original Gameboy Color game?

    The title says it all. I'm interested in making my own GBC game that will play in emulators and I would like to know how difficult such a task would be, if it would be possible at all. Thanks for any info/advice you can provide.

    If I spelled something wrong, I'll just blame it on auto-correct

    First you would have to find some information on Gameboy Color homebrew, not something that is all that popular.
    The Game boy advance system has been explored more than the Color system, if anything I would tap into that knowledge base before attempting to hack the GBC.

    Even just for creating an rom.gbc game? I guess I've got a lot of googling to do.

    You maybe able to find a program to help.

    There are GBC roms on the Public Domain sites, so... I would start my learning quest there.

    It may take me a good long while to write my own game from the ground up lol. But I hope to be able to.

    Assuming I end up getting anywhere with it I'll be sure to share it
