For Pupu

My game

This is my first game and I am pretty proud of it.
I have worked on it to make everything work a lot, because I am all new to pico8. Any comments will be apreciated


You are a monk in search of his true self by crossing desserts, and drinking water.
You need to cross a dessert inhabtated by snakes and bad foxes. An idiot put some spikes to make your life easier.

How to play

It isn´t complicated. You just have to drink water regularly and avoid getting hit by animals or spikes
You can use the sword to kill animals. You can kill with the initial sword up to 2 animals


Try to drink water regularly and try no to go to fast, because thats how yo get killed. The water obliges you to move but you have 30 secinds for each jar you drink, so don´t worry

Special thanks

To Dylan Bennet, who showed me the ropes with his tutorials and I ma xtremely grateful, because I would never have imagined that I would finish a complete game

I will add an update of this game with more weapons and a bit longer game

Pretty cool game! I kept dying randomly until I read your post and found out about the drinking water.

Good stuff

The music was edited by myself and the sfx also were created by myself
I don´t like them, so if anyone can help on that...

Pretty nice and clean code for a first project! Great job and keep at it!

The sound is not all that bad honestly, just a bit much if that makes sense. I highly recommend Gruber's PICO-8 music tutorials, they'll help you get going with some light music theory and tips you can use. :)

Thanks a lot @doczi_dominik
Most of the code is from @MBoffin tutorials tough

This. Is. AMAZING! 🤩🤩🤩 Wow, fantastic job adapting the simple tutorial into a game with way more complexity, including insides of houses, health (thirst), and everything! And I love the comments of the NPCs at the end! 😆
