Hey everyone! It's been a while since my Doukutsu Demake and it's been far too long since I've worked with Pico-8. I decided I want to get back into the space, so I'm making simple projects over on YouTube. My first challenge is building Conway's Game of Life, from scratch, on screen. The result is the video and cart that you see above.

Comments and criticism encouraged, we're all friends here :)

My Doukutsu Demake made a splash, but I still consider myself to be a beginner Pico-8 programmer, and the most novice of game developers. I have much to learn. Pico-8 has enormous potential, and there's so much left to learn, and I'm hoping I can help a few other people learn along side me. I'm planning on posting a new Pico Challenge every Friday for the foreseeable future.

If you have any ideas for challenges I should do in the future, feel free to ask! I'd love to hear any idea, no matter how big or small.

Thanks guys!

Challenge #2, last week I looked at how to build a few different types of 2D game cameras:

I'm a huge fan of cellular automata in general - this is amazing!!

If this competition is still open, I can certainly put together my own custom version of LIFE using Rabbits, Foxes, and Grass.

  • Foxes eat rabbits
  • Rabbits eat grass
  • And of course, grass eats Foxes. :D

Oh hey, I got an Eater 1 in the final state of one of the runs!

Nicely done! That's a fun little thing and I appreciate it.

Edit: Have not watched the video yet - will probably comment on that on YouTube when I do.
