I was on the Pico 8 Slack channel and it was brought to my attention that Pico 8 does adorable special characters. I don't know if it's documented anywhere so I made a little cart to show them off. Who needs sprites and tiles when you have ASCII characters? :D
Here's a complete characters map for who needs it:
For typing Gryphs in the editor you can press Shift+(Key that flashes in the charmap), for example Shift+H inserts a Heart, you can also type \135 inside a string.
And yes, there are lowercase letters in the characters map.
>And yes, there are lowercase letters in the characters map
you can see them in the listing with ls, when encountering folders mixing upper and lower case
>The squiggle one is actually just the tilde '~', and is a fairly standard key on typical US keyboards :p
that character used to be quite common in internet urls like http://website.com/~usernamefolder ; it looked so wierd
