My first post here! Thanks to everyone who posts here, I have learned so much from you.
This is a little graphics thing I made on the PocketCHIP while trying to get to grips with cellular automata.
Use arrows while holding one of the action buttons to change palettes, display modes, or regenerate a new pattern. Use arrows while holding the other action button to smear the patterns into stripes.

Modification of Conway's Game of Life from Pico-8 zine issue 2
Oh no Processing is a whole other thing, so it would mean rewriting from Pico-8 into another format. You couldn't go back after that. It's sort-of associated with Arduino, so it's quite a good little language for newbs like me who want to experiment with a program to draw things on a screen. Stuff made in Processing tends to feel much less playful imo, and it's a much less interesting design space than Pico-8, but it's more flexible.
