I haven't seen anyone doing this yet, so I thought I'd give it a shot:
It's a total hack, and obviously works only in the context of a browser.
I imagine it as an awkward rubber chiclet keyboard that plugs into the game controller ports.
The demo (arrows to move, spacebar to erase) is for making terminal/typewriter art like this:
Typing is possible, but would need a buffer to hold incoming characters in order to work reliably enough for something like a typing tutor game.
Found it ! I was looking for hours for this thing.
DPPC, CAN YOU write this so it is a single .p8 or .p8.png file ?
There are many people (including myself) who would like to have full keyboard reading capability when playing and posting carts for PICO-8.
