a first try with pico-8
I tried doing the simplest thing that one may do in lua.
a choose your adventure game.
there are 27 endings total, I couldn't do more due to the limitations
the golden apple one is my favorite.
pico-8 comes with a txt with the basic cheatsheet
but I you want to learn lua codeacademy is the best place
edit: wait, forget it, codeacademy doesn't have lua
zep left this site on the txt file however, so you may want to look here
also, to read the txt document I recomend using notepad++, the windows notepad is terrible.
For a real quick crash course in Lua it's hard to beat
though note that the whole LUA api/stdlib is not available for you in PICO-8.
You'll have an idea though when running your cart and seeing "_____ is nil."
