Raise The Dead is an Action Platformer for the Pico-8 in which the player must help a recently resurrected skeleton escape from his crypt. Hop on the magic skulls floating throughout the crypt to find the key to each floor's door!

The purpose in developing this game was to both to learn how to make pico-8 software and as an attempt to design a game around a single gimmick; In this case, hopping off of enemy heads.


Arrow Keys - Move

Z key - Jump

Down Key - Fall through the thin wooden floors

Special Technique - Hold the jump button when hopping off of enemies to jump higher

Update 0.2 pushed!

Keyblock feedback greatly improved - I added a reaction on the keyblocks for when the player picks up a key and is able to pass through them. The coloring on this is temporary for right now; I'm currently just using palette swaps for the effect, but in further updates I would like to migrate these blocks to their own objects I can spawn to have greater control over the color
4 more floors!
Misc bugfixes and timing tweaks 

Special Thanks

mhughson - Advanced Micro Platformer - Starter Kit


viza - Advanced Particle System library


These were both immensely helpful as tools to help learn how some more complicated game programming subjects are tackled in pico-8; It's really nice to see people give to the community like this and I wanted to make sure they didn't go un-credited.
