Kirby's Dream Land was the first game on Game Boy I ever bought myself. I was amazed by the graphical style, the cheerful melodies and the simple, yet extraordinary gameplay mechanics. Not only was the Kirby franchise a big stepping stone for all my future gaming explorations, it also inspired me in more artistic ways. When Kirby's Dream Land 2 appeared on the shelves, it was no giving that I would buy it immediately. Years later, when I decided to make a Let's Play for YouTube, KDL2 was an obvious choice as a starting point.
