Hey everybody!

I'm starting a PICO-8 indexing project called PICO-ATE (www.pico-ate.com). It's a resource dump site for templates and tutorials that might be too niche or specific for our wiki or Github pages. Right now we've got a template for creating printable PICO-8 game manuals, as well as a game tutorial by @misato and a Newgrounds Medal tutorial by @Bigaston.

I'd love to host any tutorials, templates or weird one-offs that any of you might have! If anybody is interested, either dump your link in this thread, or hit me up on Twitter (@platformalist) and I'll review the content!

If you are referring to useful programs to help others in PICO-8, I wrote one that allows you to have proportionally styled text.

You can find that HERE, EggNog:


Hope This Helps !

Hi dw817 - That's a great example of what I'm looking for! I've linked to you on the site. Is there a twitter handle you'd like me to plug, or should I just refer to you as dw817?

Just ... dw817. I'm pretty well known on the Internet for those 5-characters alone, thanks. :)

Just bumping this thread! PICO-ATE now has a pretty solid list of templates, tutorials and resources. If there's anything you folks would like to add, just dump it in this thread and I'll check in periodically to pick it up!

You should add the "awesome pico-8" list, plus probably lots of stuff on the list :)

EggNog, your Pico-Ate looks good. I would include some images or art of the system on your main page too.

@tobiasvl - Oh, that list was already on there, just labeled as PICO-8 Github. I've updated it with a more recognizable name!

@dw817 - Do you mean to include art in the background? Or is there a library of art that you'd like to include?

P#55246 2018-08-16 13:52 ( Edited 2018-08-16 17:52)

Not necessarily art but screenshots, animations, the works - in action of carts other people have written. If someone comes across you page accidentally, they may not know what it means.

But as they say, a picture tells a thousand words. Animated ? Even more. :) Likely they'll stay, especially if you link directly back to homebase where they can purchase their own copy of PICO-8:


You're certainly welcome to use any of the animated pictures I presented for my Haunted House game.


You might embed the demo program written by ZEP included with PICO via "install_demos" called, "Hello." With the original music on to your main page. User must click on it to activate it.
