Whew! This was an incredible video to make with lots of surprises along the way. I’m really happy I got the opportunity to get some interviews in as it helped bridge some gaps in the Glucoboy’s timeline. There’s actually a ton of slightly incorrect information out there (especially in regards to dates) and some confusing info with places reporting about the Glucoboy “coming soon” in the US as early as 2003. Regardless, I did a ton of work researching this so I’m confident in what I’m presenting.
ALSO, I’m very much excited to show off, for the first time, developer builds of Glucoboy in this video! Still hoping to find an actual Glucoboy or completed Glucoboy ROM for preservation, but this is a great start. Both Paul Wessel and Brad Butler are lovely, sincere people who you can tell really cared about this project, so I’m thrilled to share it with the world. Anyways, please enjoy!
I know this is a short-and-sweet video but DON’T WORRY! This isn’t replacing my “usual” content! I have another exciting video in the works but I wanted to make sure I could get something out before the end of the month.
These facts come from two 2001 interviews in Japanese Magazine Nintendo Dream and as far as I can tell, have not been reported on in English! Happy to bring you some “new” information from a rare look into the development process.

Game Boys and Sewing Machines are a weird mix, which is exactly why I’ve always wanted one of these things…despite the fact that I don’t really know how to sew. I may have gone a *little* overboard ordering a second one from Japan so that I could show off another color and all of the things it came with…the pink is so pretty, though!
