Thank you PICO-8 community!

This is my very first cart upload here to the BBS! I'm mostly making this post as a thank you to the PICO-8 community for being so informative and welcoming to people who want to learn how to make games. Between the wiki and the forums, I've been able to learn more about how to program in PICO-8 this past month than I could've imagined (this is coming from an absolute newbie).

Here's my first functioning framework for the current project I'm working towards - a rhythm game. I wanted to make this prototype with the intention of being able to easily change the BGM speed and arrow speed independently and still have the audio-visual timing be spot on. I'll likely make a newer version that showcases that functionality. For now, here's a short-and-sweet demo. Enjoy!

Sweet demo, @Fettuccini. I'm interested to see you improve on this.

Nice! On my keyboard any two keys at the same time work correctly, but with three or four keys the detection goes wrong.
