What's that ? You got Halloween on the brain ? Well who wouldn't !

It's that spooky time of year where things go bump in the night and you watch scary movies with popcorn and friends.

So having looked at the many programs of LIFE and how the pixels behave I thought I would one up this and create DEATH. Yep. Truly a creepy decay program, based on GFA code I wrote 20-years ago called "Plague," although there I had true 24-bit color so it was much more colorful and spooky.

(v00 10-20-22) TO LOAD THIS PICO-8 CART, in immediate mode, type: load #mcaf

The WHITE represents good healthy cells and the - plague ? Yep, that's what is gnawing away at the sides, just feasting away on its succulent flesh. OK, that's a bit much, sorry 'bout that. :)

Still, run it full-screen, press the button to PLAY it and the button shown to the lower right to get the full effect of decay and erosion. Press CTRL+R at any point to restart it and [ESC] to exit full-screen.

In tune with Halloween please check out a blast from the past. The very first game I wrote for Pico-8, "Mildew's Manor."


And the game, "The Dead Should Die." based upon a creepy level in "Little Nightmares."



Have fun and be safe out there !
