This is my first game on Pico-8 : La légende de Tiki-Gabou.

The game is in French (I am French), but it has no text other than in the introduction screen and the end screen.

It's an adventure game, with riddles to solve, like buttons to push, stone blocks to push, keys to open doors, this kind of stuff.

I started this project between Christmas and the new year, and finished it today. I gave myself 3 month for the developpement, so objective reach !

I hope you enjoy the game =)

Can't figure out way past 24-green switches and striped water room.

@Raphytator, are you still in Pico-8 ? I won your game and was most impressed by it. Gold star work. I'd like to translate it to English and post as a new cart in this thread if that's alright with your permission ?

Es-tu toujours en Pico-8 ? J'ai gagné votre jeu et j'en ai été très impressionné. J'aimerais le traduire en anglais si cela vous convient avec votre permission ?

Yes, no worry.
I'm happy you enjoyed the game =)

Very good, thanks. Let me work on that now ...

And here you have it. I also fixed the scrolling text. Not sure why it wasn't working properly earlier. Might be the new Pico-8 version. I confirmed the winning text also appears correctly.

I have a thread that lists modded carts, @Raphytator. As this one has been translated to English may I include a link from there to HERE on that thread ?

Here is the link:


J'ai un fil qui répertorie les chariots modifiés. Comme celui-ci a été traduit en anglais, puis-je inclure un lien vers ICI sur ce fil ?

Thanks for the work 🙂

Alright ! You are immortalized in bronze.


I also wanted to mention I really like the music you've done in here. Many people including myself can write a fair bit of code but to have music that does not get tedious and in fact is quite interesting and greatly adds to the game is nothing short of brilliant.

It strongly reminds me of a mix of Legend of Zelda with Ultima. A nice combination.

Well done !

Je voulais aussi mentionner que j'aime vraiment la musique que vous avez faite ici. Beaucoup de gens, y compris moi-même, peuvent écrire pas mal de code, mais avoir de la musique qui ne devient pas fastidieuse et qui est en fait assez intéressante et qui ajoute grandement au jeu est tout simplement génial.

Cela me rappelle fortement un mélange de Legend of Zelda avec Ultima. Une belle combinaison.

Bien joué !

Loving this game! Great puzzles and music.

One problem I came across was on one of the sections after the maze where you place stones on the dots to open the doors. I realise you have to click on the green icon to reset the stones, but I got into a position where I couldn't get back to this green"reset" button and had to restart by resetting the cart.

Just thought I'd flag. I have a screen shot if needed.

Thanks so much for a great great game :-)

Hi @paul Knight. That's pretty interesting what you found there. I might recommend that @Raphytator make a mod so the (X) or (O) key will reset the room.

I really have been looking at this game and have put on the backburner to write my own - already had in mind (X) would reset both player and puzzle in a room.

P#103216 2021-12-20 23:04

You already can press (X) and (O) to be teleported at the begining of the room, i had anticipate this problem when i created the game 🙂
I wrote it on the itch page of the game, but i forgot to write it here 😅

Oh ? Wow. Lemme try that. Well look at you, @Raphytator. How nice ! You might consider resetting the objects in the room additionally - then you won't even need to have the player step on the reset button, unless they want to.
