A demo, and a love letter to Japanese professional wrestling, from Jumalauta. Released at Instanssi 2020, won first place in the demo compo.

No guarantees at all about working on a browser. Tested on Firefox, crashes almost immediately. The cart works fine on the Pico-8 software, naturally. If you want to watch it on a browser, YouTube is your best bet :)

Amazing. Congrats on the win, well deserved.

Runs almost flawlessly on win64 Chrome, just slight hitches during the end-scene flashing. More hitches throughout, also during flashing, on Firefox Developer Edition. Maybe a lot of allocation going on during those moments? I have a boatload of ram, so that might be why it survived on my system.

Anyay, nice work jamming all that into one cart! Slick.

I just watched it myself on the BBS and it didn't crash, so I guess the Wasm player is more robust and tolerant of my shenanigans than the standard JS player exported by PICO-8. It does pause for about 1 frame during the flashes, and you guessed it right, the flashes are there to hide frame rate drops while handling a lot of stuff in the memory :)

Wow, I love the energy in that cart. Good work!

Won’t run on mobile for some reason. Fails to boot

Takes a really long time to start up (30+ seconds on Windows for me), but it's glorious! 🤩

Seems like changes in the more recent PICO-8 versions made the demo desync a bit?

P#91359 2021-05-01 15:41

never have i been so impressed in a technical demo, this stand out from the crowd of 3D graphics as a flashy yet catchy technical demo. this is probably one of the best thing you can find on PICO-8

I saw this demo on youtube about a month ago and it's what convinced me to begin my game design journey in earnest with PICO-8. Best decision I've made in a long time and I have you to thank for it. This is awesome (the music, too).
