QUEST has been hailed by critics as "the most exhilarating 299 characters of source code I have played today" and "a true example of minimalism...well definitely not a false example".

Features include:

  • Dynamically hard-coded sound effect(s)!!
  • Full English dialogue!!
  • Fit-on-one-screen source code!!

(This was created as part of TweetTweetJam in which the prompt was to make a game using fewer than 560 characters of code.)

Wow. Two hundred and ninety nine characters. A but ton of time and work went into this one. And GASP. Pico8 can use GOTO???

oh thanks :D. I was more going for sillyness and aesthetics here, but in terms of technical complexity, other PICO-8 developers have definitely done much more impressive things with fewer lines of code; just search Twitter for #tweetcart. Basically any character-minimizing technique I know was learned from looking at those tweets :)

Not another grindy RPG...
