I'm an 11 year old kid and with no bank account I can't use PICO-8 or Pixel Vision 8.

"Hey, dad! I want to be a programmer, therefore I need Pico-8. I'll wash your car/mow the lawn/take out the trash this week if you want!"

Programming is problem solving, consider "how to get Pico-8" your first lesson.

Yeah... there's a good chance you'll end up with some spyware on your computer if you download anything from there.

DR4IG and gtust, i am around 12 ( i ownt say my actual age) and i tried your ideas, no dice, you guys just ASSUME that all parents act like you, I begged my parents for 4 years for a pc and all my games were bought by my friends so I could play the game with them, so dont think that this is the answer, I do chores all day and my neighborhood/area isnt hiring because of minimum wage increase.

If all your games were bought by your friends, presumably they're spending at least $15 on those games. Tell them you want to make a video game with them and ask them to get Pico-8 so you can work on it together.

Or if you just want to make games, Unity is way more powerful and functional and 100% free. It's used by actual game developers on serious projects but can be used for tiny Pico-8 style projects as well. There are loads of tutorials for it all over the internet, some on Unity's site, which will provide sprite sheets and music and assets and everything.

TIC-80 is free. https://tic.computer
It's another fantasy console. The IDE also works on mobile/tablet.
