I got this Pico-8 game in a random lot on eBay. I couldn’t find it in any of the classic Pico-8 game guides, so it’s probably a bootleg.
I ripped the ROM (since my old Pico-8 system hasn’t worked in ages), and I figured I’d share it here since one of you guys must know about these obscure cartridges. I can’t tell if it the game is corrupted or if that’s how it’s meant to be.
Enjoy! Multiple endings, surrealist horror, and a bumping soundtrack (available for free download here).
All that aside, great thanks to:
@Synth_dfr for the music corruptor - https://www.lexaloffle.com/bbs/?tid=3561
@willwilliams68k for the glitchy static effect -https://www.lexaloffle.com/bbs/?uid=23038
and of course @zeb for all of the wisdom from JELPI
...but somehow I still didn't get the controls feeling as good.
This seems interesting, but...
Is there a way you could make the player decelerate a little faster? As it currently stands I find it frustratingly hard to land successfully on a 1-block wide platform, to the extent that it's a bit discouraging to replay.
The visual and sound effects are great, by the way.
it's a shame this strange old cart uses "up" for jump, because it's not really playable on a PICO-8 proper, with the gamepad; I have to use my devkit model with the keyboard attachment. It has an interesting aesthetic though and I think it would benefit from modding in the O button as jump, like Jelpi.
