I notice the Pico-8 font has some semi-graphical characters, but not quiite enough to make a real retro text-mode UI out of.

I'd love to see some of the old DOS box-drawing characters added to the pico font if there's space for a few more glyphs.

You know, I was just wanting the same thing the other day. I concur.

On the other hand, you can literally call rect() as needed to render the boxes, saving you the bother of padding strings with spaces.

Ah, I think I still like the idea of having box-drawing chars. :) I give my thumbs up to the idea.

Yeah, I know Pico doesn't literally have a text mode, so it would just be for fun.

...But I would enjoy that fun.

I await PicoHack, PicoLarn, and PicoRogue. :)
