This is my second upload (first was only music), though still not exactly a game.

The code looks crazy, and probably isn't the most efficient method, but it works! I'd love any tips on things I could do to improve this. Thanks!

Nice one! :D

You might wanna try following up with some "clearing" black streaks here & there (or something)?

Coz your effect at the start is great... but when it fills the screen with all green, it's less effective.

But again... a great first "visual" cart! :D

Looks great! My only suggestion would be to add some "eraser threads" that every once in a while go through a column and fade-erase as they travel through. Maybe use colors 3 to 5 to 1 as the fade colors?

Edit: Haha! Looks like @Liquidream beat me to it. :D

Thanks @Liquidream! I agree, the trails need to disappear after a bit, but that will be a project for another day, I suppose. :)

@MBoffin, I was trying to figure out how I could go about "erasing" the streams, your suggestion seems easy enough to implement. Thanks for that!

:: The Matrix has you

This is interesting. I couldn't resist to make my own Matrix screensaver for Pico-8. Uploading my best try so far...

Experimental vertical scrolling included (press buttons to enable). Enjoy!

Nice work @SkyBerron!

I took a slightly different approach, updated the cart at the top. Let me know what you think, everyone! :)

I think I'm done with this project for a while. I've added a bit of randomness to the number of threads and the length of the tail, and you're able to press Z to reset the program and get new random values. Surprisingly, I'm also happy with how sometimes a thread will overlap another, sometimes in front and sometimes behind, I enjoy the effect it produces.

If anyone else wants to make their own modifications, you're welcome to use my code. I'd love to see how others change this to make it their own!

looks good! maybe a bit black overall (needs more threads) ?

here's mine from last year:
