I've been using PICO-8 for a little bit now, but i never got around to making an account and posting my stuff here
Anyways, i made this little survival platformer for the ld51 compo, theme: "Every 10 seconds"
Hope you enjoy!
If there is one thing I really like about your game, @roboolet, it is that the game continues to play when you are dead.
Let me explain that. The gameplay itself is quite good yet your corpse still follows the camera and gets blown up by hand-grenades and kicked around by the animals even after you are dead.
The game continues after you are dead and still follows its own rules regarding lava, regarding the timer, everything.
I would love to see more games have this kind of interactivity where it doesn't just freeze up and say, "Game Over." No, the game continues in your absence and tracks wherever your body may be.
The only thing I might add is if you die because of anti-gravity, once the field is released, the player's corpse will fall back down immediately, camera tracking it, once again allowing the elements and animals to manipulate it.
Marvelous design. Most refreshing. Interesting to watch, especially after death. Clear gold star achievement.
