I am a CS graduate student who secretly has no idea what he's doing.

I was bored in class today, and had an idea for a quick Etch-A-Sketch simulator.

Up/Down/Left/Right to control, or you can switch to a more "authentic" Etch-A-Sketch experience by switching the controls with the "Change controls" option in the menu. L/R will then move left/right, Z/X will move down/up.

Shake the canvas by using the "Shake" option in the menu.

It's not really meant to be anything special, but I haven't posted in a while.

Try to build the largest snowman in this appropriately themed puzzle game!
There are 20 levels to play and to try to get the best score.


D-pad: Move player
X: Hold to reset level
Z: Select options

A pseudo-tweetcart of the Windows/terminal screensaver pipes.

Enjoy this Pico-8-ified version of the Bongo Cat meme, complete with terrible placeholder music! Feel free to use this to your heart's content.

UPDATE 2: I went in and added parallax scrolling! I'm very pleased with how it turned out. This will probably be the final update to the game, as I've now completed everything I was interested in doing.

UPDATE: Based on feedback, I've added the option to add a border or background around the minimap. The option can be seen in the pause menu (press []). I also added a sash that shows what level you're about to begin.

My first real Pico-8 game! It's a clone of the classic arcade game Bosconian, which has always been a favorite of mine. I'm really happy with how it turned out. There's a few things that I might eventually revisit, and the music is sort of terrible, but all and all not bad for my first fully fledged game.

X to shoot, [] to pause. D-pad to steer, but the ship flies forwards on its own.

A small little program to play Conway's Game of Life in. It supports randomly populating the screen, as well as creating your own designs with an editor.

I started out making this as a quick little project, but I ended up also using it to figure out how a title screen menu would work.

After looking at some Outrun art earlier today, I was inspired to try my hand at some as well. I quite like how this turned out in the end, although there's a few small visual things I could probably tune up. I did make a tweetcart version of the program w/o the buildings in (just barely) under 280 characters. I might use this as a visual to later try and make some appropriate music using Pico-8.

The shimmering sun effect was based on a similar effect done (better) by user Svetlana here on the BBS.

This is the first platformer I've made on Pico-8, featuring a character created on the Stardew Valley Discord for its first anniversary. It's pretty rough, but for a first attempt I'm rather pleased how it turned out.

As you could also guess, it's based heavily on the platformer example from the second Picozine.

A test in making 3D graphics within Pico. I'm pretty pleased with the result, although the shader isn't working well enough to show off here.

This was the very first thing I made in Pico-8, and so I've decided to upload it. Some of the code is a little funky, such as using sprites to make the Red Spot instead of using the same method used to make the other stripes, but I was still learning the ropes.

A fun little visualizer that I made. You can change the rotational speed to get different effects.
