Hello there. This is a silly cart I did as a result of a inside joke. It started with one of my current avatars being a tracing of a "I REGRET NOTHING" gif with a rotating chicken and it ended up somehow on Pico-8.
Some technical stuff:
So we have 12 frame gif exported into spritesheet/map data with a tool I wrote on the fly to make it possible and took most of the programming time. The tool loads the frames from a gif and split each frame in 8*8 sprites, indexes them to avoid repetition in sprites and gives me the map data of each frame (or better, the map values to be changed from a frame to another, making a frame's data negligible).
I wanted to use the vector tool to vectorize the frames by hand but the lack of overlaying a model image and the amount of frames made me prefer automatically chunking the frames instead...
The end result? Probably my silliest cart yet.
