This is my submission to the #Pico1k jam, a jam challenging people to make something in PICO-8 using no graphical or sound memory, and only 1024 characters of code! I had to cut back a lot of my original expectations to get it under the size limit, but I'm glad that I was still able to submit something playable!
Featherstone Ruins is a survival-horror game with gameplay similar to 'Slender', which I slowly built up out of some very basic raycaster code. I mainly made this as a learning exercise, and there's a thousand ways to make it more efficient and effective, but I'm happy to call it done and put what I've learned into practice on the next project!
Many years ago, a servant at the Featherstone Manor was unjustly tried as a murderer, and executed. His body was cut up, and hung around the surrounding farmland as a grim warning to others.
Since that wrongful execution, no-one at the manor has known peace. Rumours spread that the Featherstone Farm was haunted. The site was abandoned, and soon fell into disrepair. None of the curious souls who have ventured there have returned.
With oil-lamp in hand, you set out to bring peace to the Featherstone Ruins. If you can collect all four body parts hanging throughout the ruins, and consecrate them, the ghost will haunt this place no longer.
Z - Collect body part/Consecrate body (when you have four body parts, do this at the shrine near where you start to win the game)
X - Hold to Strafe
Arrow Keys - Move Forwards, Backwards, and Turn Left/Right
The shrine is always located near where you start, and marked with a big arrow.
The ghost speeds up as you collect more body parts, and will teleport to a location near you if you manage to escape him for long enough.
Dominopolis is a city-building/puzzle game, where you earn points for placing the same type of tiles next to each other.
Dominopolis was a submission to the 2021 GMTK Game Jam, where the theme was 'Joined Together'. Dominopolis fits this theme by having the tiles that you place be joined together in pairs (like dominoes, hence the name!)
Arrow keys: Move cursor
X: Rotate cursor
Z: Place tiles
