This is the Game Editor tool (work in progress) used to create the character animations and environments in the HIT8OX game.

HIT8OX can be played here.


  • Player mode (actions: move, rotate)
  • Environment mode (actions: move, rotate, scale, change cube's color, make cubes visible / invisible)

Controls (mouse needed)

Left click - select points
Right click - pan camera
Scroll wheel - zoom in / out
Arrow keys - move points, scale cube ends
< and > - switch between frames
Q and E - rotate the character / environment (rotate view)
C - copy the animation string to clipboard
M - switch between player and environment editors
R - switch between move, rotate or scale modes
V - make the HUD appear / disappear

How to transfer animations from Game Editor to HIT8OX:

  • press C or click copy to save the animation to the clipboard
  • open HIT8OX in PICO8 desktop version
  • paste / replace the string with the corresponding animation in HIT8OX -> V table
  • save & run HIT8OX with the new animation / environment


Character animations can be found in HIT8OX -> DATA tab -> ANIMATIONS table, each animation is specified with comments.

Environments are also found in the HIT8OX -> DATA tab -> ANIMATIONS table, under the ENV1, ENV2 and ENV3 comments.

In Environment mode the color of the cubes can be changed by clicking on the coloured rectangle in the top toolbar.
Having more than 6 cubes visible in the environment can drastically reduce the performance in HIT8OX.

You can load animations / environments into the HIT8OX Game Editor by pasting them in:

In order to add or remove animation frames you have to manually add or delete rows in the animation string.
Note that the frames are separated by "/" in the animation string, with the exception of the last frame.

There are still some bugs as the tool is not completed.


Update 1:

  • improved the quality of the rendering (using @freds72 polygon fill technique)

Thanks @freds72 for the help with the polygon fill technique!

A fully 3D fighting game that takes place in several urban environments. There's also an animation editor tool for the game that can be accessed at the end of the post.

Game Modes

Fight in Solo Mode against the A.I.’s 3 difficulty levels,
or against a friend in Versus Mode.


Both fighters can be personalised in the Character Customisation screen.
You can modify the color of any body part.


3 different stages to fight in:
-Subway Station
-Parking Lot


Beware that the fighters get tired and start to sweat.
Manage your hits so you never run out of stamina!

Custom animations / stages

You can create your own animations and environments using the HIT8OX Game Editor.
Editor can be found here.


Update 1:

  • improved the quality of the rendering (using @freds72 polygon fill technique)

Update 2:

  • fixed a bug where the slow motion effect kept getting stuck
  • fixed a bug where the players wouldn’t die if they kept moving while having 0 health
  • fixed a bug where the particles on the ground were drawn through the map and players
  • optimised the menu background to bring it back to 30 FPS (with help from @freds72)


Designed and developed by Vlad-Constantin Comarlau

Thanks @freds72 for the kind words and for the help with the polygon fill technique and optimisations! Looks so much better now (just how I imagined it).

Thanks @SNITAL for play testing the game and giving the first impressions!

Drive at high speed through traffic and survive the dangers you'll encounter.

Will you make it through the night?

This is one of my prettiest games so far.
Hope you enjoy it!

My highest score: 48.
