Hey everyone!

I bought pico-8 as both a fun hobby for myself, but also to get my 6-year-old daughter into game development. We had a blast creating this, and it is our first game! It is a short adventure-platformer with a day/night mechanic that changes the levels a bit.

We have collaborated on everything from music, to art, level design, and even some code. She has proudly drawn pixel art, and decided on the main mechanics of the game, as well as the levels (and boss!).

She wanted me to release this game "to the world" 😊 so obviously it's going on here. It's incredibly short, and more of both me and her learning the pico-8 platform.

We hope you enjoy this brief little platformer!

Good game, @bharos_!

I think the enemy movement in here, especially at night, is faster than any game I've seen to date, so, yeah, you really gotta be on your toes to get past them.

The birds are just evil and have it out for you ! :)

Interesting game mechanics controlling day and night, much like Planet Alpha. Gold star work !

Haha, yeah my daughter really wanted the animals to go crazy at night 😊 I followed her direction to a T, wanting her to feel like it's "her" game. 😁
