Hi to all!
I've been in love with Pico8 and the whole idea of fantasy consoles for over a year now.
Today I'd like to introduce my take at fantasy console: tako80
I've been working on it for months. I just launched the site at http://tako80.net where you can read about it and find the documentation, if you happen to be interested!
To promote tako80, I launched the first TakoJam. You can read about it here http://tako80.net/takojam.
The first prize is $100. I will eventually reward a second and a third prize of $50 and $20.
If you are interested, just drop me a line! Thanks :)
Looks neat. Your biggest challenge I think will be in building a community---good luck! I would love to see more fantasy consoles get successful and compete, that can only be a good thing. I'm new to the idea and quite happy with Pico-8 and the well established community that came with it, myself, but hopefully you'll find some adventurous game jam types to take the plunge.
I've tried to install it, but it doesn't work (linux mint 18):
tako80 example /usr/lib/node_modules/tako80/tako80.js:67 let cartJs = fs.readFileSync('cart.js').toString(); ^^^ SyntaxError: Block-scoped declarations (let, const, function, class) not yet supported outside strict mode at exports.runInThisContext (vm.js:53:16) at Module._compile (module.js:373:25) at Object.Module._extensions..js (module.js:416:10) at Module.load (module.js:343:32) at Function.Module._load (module.js:300:12) at Function.Module.runMain (module.js:441:10) at startup (node.js:139:18) at node.js:968:3
I have nodejs 4.4.7 and npm is 3.10.3
(edit) I've finally installed nodejs 6 and it works now! It looks interesting.
