Welcome to PICOCRAFT, a Minecraft demake with extra features! This is my second finished PICO-8 cartridge. If there's features you would like to see in this or bugs that you find, PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE leave a comment! I hope you like this. :)


1/30/2022: v1.17.1 Fixed Destroyer bug where they weren't destroying the blocks above them (it was destroying the block above the player, oops).
12/15/2021: v1.17 Added Bombs, DBombs (Destroyer Bombs), and made those damage you in Health mode if you're too close. (This will probably be the final major 1.x update, since I hit the token limit while coding this. Still, I'm proud of how far I've come with this!)
12/11/2021: v1.16 Fixed mining air playing the mining sound in creative mode, added coordinate overlay (in pause menu), added Health gamemode (don't fall too far!), and saving the gamemode. (To convert a prior save to this version, append "#1#1" to the end.)
12/10/2021: v1.15 Gamemode selection updated, weak mode added (no placing/breaking blocks), creative mode updated (break blocks instantly with your fist).
12/9/2021: v1.14 Conveyer-Springs added!
12/8/2021: v1.13 Orbs now stack (2x Speed Orb --> 2x the speed!) and work when placed in the world, and the OMNITOOL has been added -- a combo of the three main tools.
12/4/2021: v1.12 Added Creative Mode, accessible through the pause menu!
12/3/2021: v1.11 Added Orbs, vertical Movers, and made it so that mining Movers or open Doors give you the default version of themselves (e.g. open Doors give closed ones).
12/2/2021: v1.10.2 Fixed A BUNCH OF FEATURES NOT EXISTING (see below changelog for why).
12/2/2021: v1.10.1 Fixed max crafting/smelting not EXISTING WHAT
12/2/2021: v1.10 Changed controls from ESDF to WASD! YAY!!
11/30/2021: v1.9 Added skin chooser in pause menu! (To convert a prior save to this version, append "#1" to the end.)
11/28/2021: v1.8 Fixed buggy box moving, and added color blocks!
11/28/2021: v1.7 Added max crafting/smelting! Craft a whole bunch. (Note: This effectively just speeds up pressing Z a bunch of times -- even if you would use the last of an item, it's not entirely sure if you would, so play it safe and leave a slot open.)
11/28/2021: v1.6.1 The v1.6 bug fix caused performance issues after using a world with a LOT of Movers, so I fixed that. :)
11/28/2021: v1.6 Fixed bug with Block Movers not updating after being moved. Now you can make spaceships!

11/26/2021: v1.5.2 Made Block Mover unable to move Bedrock or items that need to be supported (e.g. Workbench).
11/26/2021: v1.5.1 Changed Stone Mover to Block Mover.
11/26/2021: v1.5 Leaves' breaking time scales with axes, destroyers and movers added.
11/26/2021: v1.4 Fixed bug with loaded games not being able to be resaved.
11/26/2021: v1.3 Added shovels and axes.
11/26/2021: v1.2 Fixed workbench cursor glitch.
11/26/2021: v1.1 Added day-night cycle saving and ladders. (To convert a v1.0 save to v1.1, append "#0" to the end.)
11/25/2021: v1.0 Initial release.

v1.10.2 Storytime

So apparently, somehow a bunch of changes in my working copy got reverted, leading me to have to download a previous version and make a few updates. Luckily, it all worked out, but it wasn't without stress. I honestly have no clue how this revert happened, but let's hope it doesn't happen in the future.

I REALLY like this
nice job!
only, the jumping feels moonlike, I go up and s l o w l y fall down.
besides that, it is very epic!

P#102080 2021-12-08 23:10

@SandwichBlam Are you holding jump as you fall? That effectively decreases the gravity -- you fall faster if you don't hold jump while falling. :)

P#102114 2021-12-08 23:49

I liked this game very much! I had fun playing it. I think this game is really good, the only thing I'd like to added to the game is enemies. Other than that, I enjoyed it.

While messing around with the code, I found out that if you break the bedrock that prevents you from going out-of-bounds, there's an extra barrier preventing you from going out.

P#103212 2021-12-20 21:48 ( Edited 2021-12-20 21:52)

@evman2k Hehe nice! And as for enemies, I probably won't add them (this is meant to be a relaxing experience).

P#103213 2021-12-20 21:51

Might I request a few things...

I found a bug with destroyers.

While it does give a copy of the block above it in your inventory, it doesn't break the block. It ends up giving you copies of the block above it in quick succession. So quick that you can get more than a hundred blocks in less than a second! The only way to stop it is to mine the destroyer or to mine the block above it. For being called destroyers, they don't really live up to their name...

Fast healing in "health mode".

A fall from top to bottom in health mode doesn't only takes away 10 hearts. Being close to a bomb explosion takes away about 5 hearts. While that might seem significant, healing is almost quick enough where the only way to die is to do it intentionally.

Other than that, this is a really good Minecraft demake. I love how you made some blocks function as farms and other blocks help to make a cool build. I hope to see this cart evolve in the near future!

@Andrew_Is_Funny Ok so funny story! I actually knew about the destroyer bug but just forgot about it for a while, so thanks for reminding me! It's now fixed. As for the health mode thing, I don't really know how I would change it to be more punishing. Maybe by increasing the time between healing...

its very fun, but the art is like, meh. But other than that really great!

( i see you are more a programmer than a artist )
