PicoTerm is a simple PICO-8 CLI template. It can be used as a basis for command-line games and programs.

To get commands, modify execute() with your command handling code. To print a line, use echo().

If you use this in a project please credit DivergentClouds and link back to this page. (I would also appreciate being notified, however, that is not mandatory)


  • Prohibited glyph characters in input to prevent doublewide characters from messing up the screen scrolling


  • Made it so that the prompt is mixed in with the log rather than being stuck at the bottom of the screen


  • Made it so pressing ESC won't print a character


  • Released

Known Bugs:

  • Typing double-wide characters breaks the line wrap

@dw817 unfortunately, a moveable cursor wouldn't be easy to implement into the existing codebase, however, you are free to modify this as long as you credit and link back here.

You are using some advanced programming in here that I'm not familiar with, @FlowingLily. The FOREACH for instance. I have your cursor, it's just kinna clumsy the way I did it.
