Hi all, just thought I would introduce myself.

I am 39 year old who grew up in the heady times of the C64 and Amiga. Basically that whole home computer boom. I am studying mathematics part time and have been using Python to do some maths based projects with.

recently I decided to get back into game dev as a hobby like I did with the C64 in BASIC and on Amiga with AMOS. It's been a learning experience bringing myself back into it all again. Especially with having to knock my brain into learning to state machines properly without the help of an engine like GMS2 doing the heavy lifting.

Anyway, just wanted to say I am enjoying my experiences so far with Pico-8. Had it a while and not really done anything with it. That is changing though. So I will be coming looking for advice.

Cool! That's rad :)

Have you checked out the various (digital) Pico-8 zines? They are really in the spirit of old programming magazines, e.g. having you copy code in by hand, etc, and I really recommend them if you're after that feeling (or even if you're not necessarily!)

Good luck!
