Cart #countdown_timer-1 | 2019-07-29 | Code ▽ | Embed ▽ | License: CC4-BY-NC-SA

This is my first post here. I bought PICO-8 after winning a GameSH> on a Twitter giveaway!

IRL I have a physical tool similar to what I've tried to recreate here as my inspiration. May I present... my version of a countdown timer!

I mostly made it to help me learn how PICO-8 code works, so if you happen to look at my code and wonder why I did or didn't do something, the answer is likely because I don't know any better ^_^

I drew the "font" myself, and had a blast doing it!

I'd like to add custom colors, but that is something I need to dive deeper in to understanding :)

One issue, when I compare my cart to its analog: it seems to run fast.

If anyone has any feedback, I'm open to hearing it here, or feel free to DM me on Twitter @lightmanx5 as well.

This community is so wonderful and welcoming and helpful, I'm really glad to be a part of it ^_^

Roadmap: Allow it to count past zero and actually start counting up (with numbers changing to red or blinking if already red possibly).

Update v1: Added ability to hold Z to change the time while clock is running.

It may be my weak Asus Eee PC with Intel Atom 😂
