I have a project that fits perfectly in PICO-8 because is an easy platformer for children. But I have a doubt that gives me two questions, because visual design is important in this game. It has HUGE sprites, but pixelated ones, for example, the protagonist is about 15x20 pixels, but I've envisioned him looking at x 1000% of zoom in a full HD monitor.
So for PICO8 I think he will show ok at x2 or x3. So how could I do this:
1) big sprite. build the srpite as 30x40 pixels heigth sprite. PICO could move sprites so big?
2) If not, make an engine with a camera that shows the game at x2 or x3 zoom. Is this possible?
Ah! one last question, is it possible to add a postprocessing filter to a game? for example, to have scanlines. That is semitransparent graphic that filters the screen.
