This is my first post here. I bought PICO-8 after winning a GameSH> on a Twitter giveaway!
IRL I have a physical tool similar to what I've tried to recreate here as my inspiration. May I present... my version of a countdown timer!
I mostly made it to help me learn how PICO-8 code works, so if you happen to look at my code and wonder why I did or didn't do something, the answer is likely because I don't know any better ^_^
I drew the "font" myself, and had a blast doing it!
I'd like to add custom colors, but that is something I need to dive deeper in to understanding :)
One issue, when I compare my cart to its analog: it seems to run fast.
If anyone has any feedback, I'm open to hearing it here, or feel free to DM me on Twitter @lightmanx5 as well.
This community is so wonderful and welcoming and helpful, I'm really glad to be a part of it ^_^
Roadmap: Allow it to count past zero and actually start counting up (with numbers changing to red or blinking if already red possibly).
Update v1: Added ability to hold Z to change the time while clock is running.
