This is a small project that I have been working on the past two weeks -- an idle wallpaper/clock for pico-8. Just adjust the window to an appropriate size, make it stick above other windows, and leave it in the corner of your desktop while you work :-)
The position of the sun and moon are set according to your computer's clock, and the color of the leaves and the snow in the mountains are adjusted by your computer's date. You can use the in-game menu to adjust the time manually, if you wish.
Additionally, there are 11 "events" to give the mountain view some charm, such as children playing in the village, or a monster terrorizing the forest. 3 events are chosen randomly at start-up, and these are changed every 5 minutes.
Anyone is welcome to contribute more events to the cart!
Game for the Ludum Dare 39 -- Theme: Running out of Energy
The shy gladiator has to defeat three mythical creatures, but he is too embarrassed to attack,
so instead he must dodge their attacks until the monsters lose all their powers.
You can move left or right, and dodge with "Z". Dodge will give you a few invincibility frames, but also
take some hit points from you.
Can you defeat all three monsters?
Game by @caranha and @conanfelipe
- Better title screen that actually explains the game;
- Better logic for the Cyclops, and calling out attacks;
- Balance the damage amounts better;
My first complete PICO8 game, for the Ludum Dare 37.
A small twist on the "factory" genre, you have a limited time to
play, and must make as much money as possible in that time.
What is the optimal build order?
