PICONICCC — demo for PICO-8.
Released at DiHalt 2021 demoparty (https://events.retroscene.org/dh2021)

Creating ST NICCC clones on all possible platforms is a demoscene challenge. The original demo uses a 640KB data file. A single PICO-8 cartridge can fit only about 12KB of arbitrary data. To fit the whole 3D scene in a single cartridge, we re-created it with 3D models. In my opinion, finding clever solutions to overcome platform limitations and do what seemed to be impossible to do is the essence of the old-school demoscene.

Although i am not a big fan of ST NICCC clones this one is amazing.
Also great use of colors and dithering.

This is great! I cannot even comprehend the amazing work that must've been put into this! Unfortunatly, it was so big, it made the cartridge crash!

Agent Tom, what exact error do you get? How do you run the demo?

P#86315 2021-01-10 08:53

I think it was a runtime error, I don't know anything about coding so I don't know the details. I tried it again, same error...

P#86371 2021-01-11 20:51

I ran this on my computer

P#86373 2021-01-11 20:51

Good news! The error is gone! I loved this, and I think you can create things beyond our imagination!

THIS IS INCREDIBLE! These models look way better than anything the Super FX chip could do, and OH MY GOD THIS MUSIC IS SO GOOD
