Create landscapes or sit back and watch them change over time

Picopelago is a terrain toy in 1024 bytes. It includes a screensaver mode which generates landscapes and a draw mode where you can shape them yourself

As time passes, erosion smooths out rugged terrain

As mountain peaks reach the sky, the landscape sinks into the sea

Screen Saver Mode is running in harmonic complement with the surf rock soundtrack for Rocket Jockey, a 1997 game which was cursed by failure to optimize. Beautiful work, "ericb"! Thanks for sharing it with us.
