Hi! The title says it all!

I've recently been looking to get into Pico8. There's so much tutorials out there and so much to consider. I have no idea where to start! My second worry is that I have no coding experience at all. With all that being said, it's why I felt like asking out from the community itself!

So, where is the best place to get started using pico8 for the first time and what should I consider going in?

The Breakout series by LazyDevs on YouTube is a pretty gentle introduction to Pico 8 and game programming in general.

Welcome! You can pick one of the best intro tutorials, like the breakout series or top-down adventure game tutorial, or you can go another way: what game would you like to make? then we’ll point you to resources :)

Don't stress out about it to much and just learn some of pico-8's functions slowly! I would suggest drawing a player that you can move with btn() and then playing with physics like applying gravity and movement volcity.

What about "PICO-8. The Basics" videotutorial series on YouTube created by myself? It's made in Polish, but I've already added English subtitles.

Introduction (PICO-8. The Basics #1)
