Here's a little game I'm currently working on. My first Pico-8 game.
Guide Marley through a fun little adventure.

I started from scratch and made everything myself. I also composed the music.
I think that all these hours of work pretty much paid off, and I'm generally proud of the result.

I'd like to know what you think of it, and if you find any bugs. I'm open to criticism, so tell me what you like and what you don't.

Special thanks to @dw817 and @merwok who gave me tips to optimize the game.

Have fun!


P.S. Here's the very first Marley version I uploaded on this website. Originally uploaded on Jan 10 2023.

There is a known bug in it if you try interact with the vault door while the vault door return prompt is shown and you press x. Which may lead to Marley teleporting at the wrong spot or even to a softlock.

It's fun! I would love for the timer in the first section to be able to be restarted without having to wait for it to expire (in case you miss a switch along the way like I did).

Thanks for the kind words. I'll try to make it better.

@Ben731985 Could you precise what made you softlocked? I'll try to fix it.

Maybe it won't happen again. I made some changes.

Wow, I finally got a chance to play through this. It's so good! The puzzles are really well thought out, and I love the interplay of the mechanics used. And great work on the music! Really excellent work! :)

@Ben731985 I found a softlock a while ago that seems to correspond to your description and I fixed it. So I think it's fixed now.

Nice little puzzle adventure. I enjoyed it. The mad dash for the big door was cool and the music was great. Classic chiptune vibes. Well done.

@UnitVector Thanks a lot!

This was cool. Surprisingly engaging.

Out of curiosity, why did you go with tile-based movement? (was it because of the easy collision handling? Because honestly, I like it for that reason too. :)

P#132941 2023-08-10 21:38

The puzzles are really well done! Also the music goes hard :)
