Hey everyone! It's been a while since my Doukutsu Demake and it's been far too long since I've worked with Pico-8. I decided I want to get back into the space, so I'm making simple projects over on YouTube. My first challenge is building Conway's Game of Life, from scratch, on screen. The result is the video and cart that you see above.
Comments and criticism encouraged, we're all friends here :)
My Doukutsu Demake made a splash, but I still consider myself to be a beginner Pico-8 programmer, and the most novice of game developers. I have much to learn. Pico-8 has enormous potential, and there's so much left to learn, and I'm hoping I can help a few other people learn along side me. I'm planning on posting a new Pico Challenge every Friday for the foreseeable future.
If you have any ideas for challenges I should do in the future, feel free to ask! I'd love to hear any idea, no matter how big or small.
Another little project my brother and I have been working on. We are huge Cave Story fans, so building a demake was kind of a childhood dream come true. Never ceases to amaze me how much can be done within the (wonderful self-imposed) limitations of the Pico-8 engine.
It has no real ending as-of-now, we might add that in later. But for now, enjoy! If you want to see some of our process in creating this, we vlogged about it at DoubtfulGames
Simple Simon. An intense David vs. Goliath platformer featuring a small and vengeful pumpkin.
Warning: this game may make you think twice about Christmas feasts... Or at least delicious pumpkin-filled desserts.
