GBoy Theme

I once went to the work doctor and said I worked as a programmer and I was having some discomfort in my eyes from looking at a screen all day. The doctor tested my eyes and said “your vision is fine”. I said “so what should I do?”. The doctor said “Just look at something else”.

So this is simply something else.

This is a theme for Gamma inspired by the Gboy palette from the excellent game Downwell. You can find it in your favourite corner appstore.

I made this theme for fun, equipping it gives you +1 nostalgia and -1 usability.

Tested with 2021.4.12


To install

  • Download the zip here (2.5 KB)

  • Open your gamma install > go to the hamburger menu top right > click themes > click ‘explore’ to open your current theme folder (Note if you are sometimes switching between preview and stable you will have two folders for gamma and gamma-preview)

  • extract the css file from the zip into the theme folder

  • In the themes section of the hamburger menu you can now select the theme


  • If you have issues with any theme then edit your settings.xml file at
    C:\ (user)\Documents\vvvv\ (Gamma) or (Gamma-Preview)\settings.xml
  • Find the entry for ‘stylesheet’ and make the value blank to return to default theme


  • Anyone who is interested feel free to improve this
  • I could not work how to change the dots in the center of typed pads. I thought it should be .typeannotation but it does not seem to have an effect.
