As I am slowly returning to Pico-8 and I am tempted to make a Pico-8 3d printed console with CHIP, I had an idea.
How about attract mode for splore?
Just like arcades (and some console/computer games) in the past. If the machine was on and not used for a period of time, it would start a demo showcasing the game. Basically it was the game playing by itself (although it was often pre-recorded input by real players).
As Pico-8 is mostly a fantasy home console, we don't need anything too fancy. We can always let Pico-8 play some pre-recorded gifts. If we want to get to the nitty gritty, we can have a command that will record input and then play a cart by using this input.
I am not really sure if we really need this feature, but I think it would be a nice addition, especially when showcasing Pico-8.
