Helloooo! New update with a new, multiplayer-ish, "shared game" mode! It allows you to enter a password to access a game with a pre-selected set of words. Select a password, share it to your friends so you can all compose with the same words and compare the results!

Additional features:

  • more adjectives, and more synonyms for every adjective!
  • a new, dashing cover art!
  • automatic word sorting
  • some feedback and game layout rework

I hope you'll have fun with it!

Hello everyone! So, with the help of c.diffin, we released a 2.0 version of WTMGF!

New features include music, new landscapes, a ton more words, and a rework of the game flow and word picking rules to make sure you have the best time possible picking words and arranging them!

Have fun, and let me know if you have any feedback!

Oh also, if you need any convincing, I tried my hand at making a release trailer. Here:

Here is a small game that I have made for the BBQ Jam this week-end : https://itch.io/jam/bbq-jam
It's a semi-random haiku writing game.
Don't hesitate to share a haiku gif if you like it.
Hope you'll have fun!

That's such a clever idea. Love the art too.

P#131789 2023-07-09 21:52

Thanks a bunch! I have been wanting to make a game about poetry & writing for years. Glad it's done!

Haha, good ones, nice!
At the end, the game allows you to save a .gif of your haiku if you want (which btw is an awesome feature of pico-8 @zep).

P#132055 2023-07-17 04:24

oh, that's a nice touch! And a nice way to reward actually using the kigo :p

P#132094 2023-07-18 05:58

Such an interesting and playful idea.

P#132102 2023-07-18 15:11

Ahah, thanks a lot! And nice ones, too!

I got a bit of feedback, and plan on releasing an update soon, probably during next week.

I aim to add more words, more backgrounds, and try to find ways to alleviate a bit the frustration some players had on expressivity, without sacrificing the randomness and playfulness at the core of the game. I have some promising leads, and I hope you'll like it!

P#132389 2023-07-25 22:10

Love this cart! The restrictions feel really good, and I like that there’s a “strategy” layer of picking the word types. It gives you something to feel you could improve at if you ever get frustrated with your particular set of words.

Would you be interested in some music as part of your update?

P#132404 2023-07-26 10:13

Thank you @c.diffin !

Hmm, I'm not sure about music yet. I have the feeling that making a music that suits the game theme and yet does not take too much space or distracts the player's focus would be very hard to pull off. Probably because I don't have very much experience with making chiptune.

P#132419 2023-07-26 19:13 ( Edited 2023-07-26 19:14)

Sorry @MarechalBanane I should be more clear- I was volunteering to make some music for your cart if you’re interested!

I agree it’s tough to make good ambient tracks in pico-8 but I took a bit of a pass at something this evening that I think could work. I’m on the discord with the same username if you’d like to talk.

P#132436 2023-07-27 00:58

I love it SO MUCH when someone creates carts that are so educative, pedagogical, or that can be used in the classroom. Congrats!

P#132439 2023-07-27 03:44

Haha sorry @c.diffin, I read a bit too fast.
Wow, sure, I'd be glad to hear what you made! Let's talk on Discord and see if we can work it out. :)

@DÁRYNSON Thank you so much! I had not thought of this cart as classroom-compatible, but that would be awesome!

@Aragorn please elaborate

@eriban how much helium did you take when you made this lol

It's spam. Friendly reminder to avoid clicking suspicious links.

P#132802 2023-08-06 18:32

@Verb, I'm well aware. Look into my history and you'll see that I enjoy interacting with bots to see how they parse posts, and how they respond to punctuation

P#132804 2023-08-06 19:05
P#133791 2023-08-31 17:35

I like the new backgrounds. I think the camera movement could be a little slower though to make it look less woozy.

(It's a haiku about birds)

P#133793 2023-08-31 18:06

@Verb Birds are great. 😂

As I got numerous feedback from people wanting twitch integration or enjoying the social part of the game, I just released a new update with a multiplayer-ish game mode! I updated the post at the top of this thread.

Let me know what you think! I really like the idea that the game might push a bit more players to share their work or compose together, but I'm interested in your feedback!

P#135698 2023-10-10 14:25


Just wanted to mention that I'm publishing Will The Man Get Frog on Steam on February 14th! It will include new words, a new title screen and a better controller support.

Check it out/wishlist here! https://store.steampowered.com/app/2658990/Will_The_Man_Get_Frog

Don't worry, I'll make sure the BBS cart is also updated when the Steam version is released.

P#140914 2024-01-31 11:27

The game just got out on Steam!

To celebrate I updated the version on the BBS with the improvements of the Steam version. All the info is in the first post if you want to check it out!
