My entry for LD41, finished (if not quite polished) after a hard night of debugging. It's also my first-ever completed PICO-8 game. So proud of myself for getting this done within the Compo deadline, even if I'm gonna be short on sleep for work tomorrow...
'Love Is A Battlefield" combines a bullet-hell shooter with a dating sim. On the surface, it's a game about shooting hearts at coloured circles while your date asks you if you know who Pat Benatar is for the sixth time. Deep down, though, it's about helping others to deal with their insecurities and break down their emotional barriers.
I hope you enjoy it, and feedback is appreciated, especially since this is my first PICO-8 game and the code is probably a horrendous mess!
