This is a small project that I have been working on the past two weeks -- an idle wallpaper/clock for pico-8. Just adjust the window to an appropriate size, make it stick above other windows, and leave it in the corner of your desktop while you work :-)
The position of the sun and moon are set according to your computer's clock, and the color of the leaves and the snow in the mountains are adjusted by your computer's date. You can use the in-game menu to adjust the time manually, if you wish.
Additionally, there are 11 "events" to give the mountain view some charm, such as children playing in the village, or a monster terrorizing the forest. 3 events are chosen randomly at start-up, and these are changed every 5 minutes.
Anyone is welcome to contribute more events to the cart!
