You must take care of your Pico-Pet. Make sure that they don't go hungry, become sad, or get sick. To do this, press 🅾️/Z/C/N in order to bring up the menu and to select options. Press ❎/V/M to go back. If you take good care of your pet, it might grow up to become one of eight pets!

Game saves automatically and will restore your save when you start the game. If you want to start clean, press "Enter" to go into the pause menu and enter "Wipe Save." Doing so will restore everything to their default values and you won't be able to restore them back. Use at your own risk.

Special Thanks to Spaghetti for helping me with how long it takes for stuff to happen!

(If you encounter a bug, please tell me and I should be able to fix it as soon as possible. Also stay tune as future updates will include new pets and maybe new features!)


-updated the background

-added four more pets

-minor bug fix on frames

Hello. I'm working on a virtual pet game in pico-8 and need some help on how to make in-game menu. In the game, the menu is how you care for the pet with options like feed and cure and the options have sub menus for different options like which type of food you want. The main menu options are represented by icons but the sub menus are represented by text. The problem I'm running into is creating the menus in the first place as I can't figure out a solution to this and the options I have looked up online I can't make sense of the code.

A simple flower picking simulator. You play as an orange robot wanting to hand out flowers. Use ⬅️➡️ to move. Go pick a flower and give them to other red robots.

Based on a scratch project I did: https://scratch.mit.edu/projects/382959104/
