DESCRIPTION

You woke up today and decided to make a pie. You found a helpful recipe card in a drawer somewhere, but to your dismay found a woeful lack of the required ingredients! Your quest is to find the required ingredients and bake a pie!

CONTROLS

  • Arrows: Move
  • Z/N: Look at pie recipe
  • X/M: Interact with an object

Interact with stuff! If it doesn't help to further your pie-goals, at least it might have some entertaining flavor text!

CREDITS

All the coding, art, sound design, etc. was done by yours truly.
Special thanks to the Pico-8 discord for being helpful and answering my questions!

I got ahold of Pico-8 about 2 months ago, and I started working on this about two days into learning it, so... this took longer to make than I was thinking. But I think it's cute, and I learned a lot, so I like it!

this is a very nice game. i think i softlocked myself the first time by buying the wrong item in the shop, but i got it on my second attempt. the writing is funny, too.

@mrjorts Thanks for the feedback! I thought that I made sure you couldn't get softlocked there, there are three shop items, and three coins, all of which can be gotten without buying anything from the store. How'd you get stuck?

oh, i think you're right. i could have continued but i didn't come across the other two coins so i thought i was stuck and restarted. i did find them all the second try, though.

Awesome little game! I accidentally resetted my cart in the middle of it so I haven't finished it yet, but I only needed 3 more ingredients so I was pretty close, will finish later.

I had a little problem where sometimes (especially with the apples), when I picked up an item I wouldn't be able to move unless I pressed X again. Nothing major, but was a little annoying.

Again, super cool game! I love the small "open-world" experience and the NPCs. The art is super cute too :D Cheers!

EDIT: Just finished it. Thanks for sharing this with us, friend :)

What a nice little adventure game!! Thank you for making it and sharing it.

Question about

the running boots: do they only make travel shorter, or can they have another effect? I can’t find how to reach the enclave with a gravestone.

Thanks for any hint!

@merwok Thank you for liking it! <3 here's a hint.

The river moves fast enough to push you at normal speed...

Ha right! I did remark that section of the map earlier and wondered if we would go there. I didn’t think of doing the thing that you hinted at :) The following

underground
section with the things was nice, I love doing that in zelda games.

I thought maybe at the end I would have to bring slices, but I have a feeling I chose one specific thing poorly. Next playthrough!

The game was just long enough that I memorized the map and found my way directly to the dude on the bench and to my house :D Overall a lovely experience, would recommend as a first action/adventure RPG game for sure.
