This is a simple barebones template targeted at people who just got pico-8 and want to make games. It's liberally commented and designed to set up and format commonly used techniques. It handles button presses, screen updates for moving sprites, timers, text, and map display. While targeted at beginners, I also find it useful as the base for new projects because of how easy it is to edit and modify. One note; this is designed for people who have some semblance of programming experience, though not necessarily in Lua.
