Working on a little well known arcade dungeon crawler port for Pico-8.


  • Draw a dungeon that can wrap if needed
  • Draw the player sprites
  • Collisions with walls


  • Player info overlay
  • Keys and doors
  • Food
  • Potions
  • Mobs
  • Mob Generators
  • Level loading
  • (external) Mapeditor that can generate a map text string
  • ...

This is my second time doing something larger in Lua, before that i only did small scripts in it for ComputerCraft, stuff under 5 lines and such.

Regarding the drawing mechanism, i can imagine that it is cheaper with Pico-8 to simply draw the game four times than calculating wrapping the camera in Lua for the map and all objects, so for now i go with that. It is cheaper in regards of tokens too. ;)

Any suggestions on what i got so far? :)
