This is a small game made in one week for fc_jam and clickclickclick jams.
Manage two peps surviving on an island and take care of them.
This is my first pico8 cart, so don't kill me :D
Music and sound effects where made by grubber99, big thanks to him.
Neat! Fun little game, I'll be checking it more in depth later.
One thing I would recommend is using a cls() before you do the rest of your draws. Right now the cursor gets painted to the ocean bg. You'd have to come up with a different way to generate your waves, though.
For the water effect, you could have a bunch of randomly created particles. They could be as simple as a bunch of coordinates stored in a list. Then just iterate over it and draw 'waves' at that point (you could randomize it between a few types of images so that they sort of animate). Maybe have each wave have a chance to increment their x position. Then have a chance to randomly remove some from the list and randomly add some waves.
Noticed a few other bugs:
- It's possible to get the 2 dudes onto the same tile (which makes it so you can't select them separately again)
- I somehow managed to get a white outline of a rock to follow around one character. But I wasn't able to repeat it.
- For far-right tiles, the text can go past the screen. A quick fix would be to subtract some from the text's x value (text_x-=#characters*6) if the tile is on the right half of the map, so it shows up to the left of the object instead.
Oh, thanks! Will fix that tomorrow.

That's fine. You could select/unselect by clicking on them. Also you could select multiple with select tool.

That's weird. Will look into that

Nice tip, thanks :D
