This cart is a game engine for the Pico-8. It's heavily based on flickgame, of course rewritten from scratch for the P8. Basically, you draw frames, and script the transitions between frames when a certain colour is clicked.

Controls
Mouse strongly recommended: Left click to interact/click buttons, right mouse to erase and exit play mode
Dpad and buttons can be used to replace mouse if you really want

Features

  • 8 64x64 px, 16 colour frames
  • Save to cart and autoplay to make standalone cartridges
  • Save/load to clipboard for handy sharing
  • Crappy editor UI

I might write up some more stuff about the technical side later. The actual code sucks, don't look at it. :)

Here's an example cart (remember you can right mouse/button 2 to exit play mode and view the source):

If anyone makes anything cool please feel free to share here, as a cart or a clipboard save.

Double clicking with flood-fill crashes the application.

I cracked open the editor to make another demo:

Sadly it seems you can't load from the clipboard in the web player, otherwise I would have posted this that way.

Hah took me a while to understand how it works but it's pretty neat!

(I'm gonna try using this to make a small game maker!)

this is still one of the best pico-8 built game engines I've played!

You just won my heart, I haven't thought about flickgame in forever.
