You woke up today and decided to make a pie. You found a helpful recipe card in a drawer somewhere, but to your dismay found a woeful lack of the required ingredients! Your quest is to find the required ingredients and bake a pie!


  • Arrows: Move
  • Z/N: Look at pie recipe
  • X/M: Interact with an object

Interact with stuff! If it doesn't help to further your pie-goals, at least it might have some entertaining flavor text!


All the coding, art, sound design, etc. was done by yours truly.
Special thanks to the Pico-8 discord for being helpful and answering my questions!

I got ahold of Pico-8 about 2 months ago, and I started working on this about two days into learning it, so... this took longer to make than I was thinking. But I think it's cute, and I learned a lot, so I like it!

this is a very nice game. i think i softlocked myself the first time by buying the wrong item in the shop, but i got it on my second attempt. the writing is funny, too.

@mrjorts Thanks for the feedback! I thought that I made sure you couldn't get softlocked there, there are three shop items, and three coins, all of which can be gotten without buying anything from the store. How'd you get stuck?

P#90053 2021-04-06 02:26

oh, i think you're right. i could have continued but i didn't come across the other two coins so i thought i was stuck and restarted. i did find them all the second try, though.

Awesome little game! I accidentally resetted my cart in the middle of it so I haven't finished it yet, but I only needed 3 more ingredients so I was pretty close, will finish later.

I had a little problem where sometimes (especially with the apples), when I picked up an item I wouldn't be able to move unless I pressed X again. Nothing major, but was a little annoying.

Again, super cool game! I love the small "open-world" experience and the NPCs. The art is super cute too :D Cheers!

EDIT: Just finished it. Thanks for sharing this with us, friend :)

Can't believe this game is sooooo fun to play! Congratulations dude, your work will stand forever im my mind, very creative.

What a nice little adventure game!! Thank you for making it and sharing it.

Question about

the running boots: do they only make travel shorter, or can they have another effect? I can’t find how to reach the enclave with a gravestone.

Thanks for any hint!

@merwok Thank you for liking it! <3 here's a hint.

The river moves fast enough to push you at normal speed...

P#90310 2021-04-10 01:35

Ha right! I did remark that section of the map earlier and wondered if we would go there. I didn’t think of doing the thing that you hinted at :) The following

section with the things was nice, I love doing that in zelda games.

I thought maybe at the end I would have to bring slices, but I have a feeling I chose one specific thing poorly. Next playthrough!

The game was just long enough that I memorized the map and found my way directly to the dude on the bench and to my house :D Overall a lovely experience, would recommend as a first action/adventure RPG game for sure.

Great little game! Enjoyed it!

"your thoughts turn to the fistful of butter in your pocket" ahhahahahahhaha

P#90855 2021-04-20 19:38

This is great i love it

P#115109 2022-08-01 14:03

Really cute! But the slow movement speed and repetitive music drive me crazy 😝

P#115137 2022-08-02 00:12

Nice short Zelda like game!
I almost got stuck until I figured out that I should swim against the river to enter hidden area to find remaining ingredients and access to last flower.
That chicken house was puzzling at first until I realized that I had to sneak past the chicken. It was tense but I got the egg. Phew, good thing she doesn't snatch the egg back ;D.

P#115189 2022-08-03 09:29

I'm almost done, I just need one more coin for the sugar, but can't find it. Edit: I found it. Really nice game, tons of fun while it lasted.

Simply adorable sprites and marvelous gameplay, @Droodle.

You have a lot to be proud of here ! Gold star work.

P#119232 2022-10-17 20:52

Chicken house is impossible on mobile. Insta-hit every time preventing further progress. Four steps into the house is the furthest one can run. Too bad.

P#119454 2022-10-22 18:50

@Trog the chicken house is a game of red light green light, you can't move while the chicken's head is up

P#119488 2022-10-24 01:59

Great game! when will you make a new game?

P#123258 2022-12-29 23:26

@birdmanisking Thank you! I don't know if I'll make any more games with pico-8, I love the system but I like having a little more space. I enter game jams every once in a while, you can see my itch page here, I've got a couple good games there.

P#123261 2022-12-30 00:03

Thanks for the link! I can't wait to see any new games you will make.
