Hey everyone! This was done for a game jam over the summer, and it was my first time making a game using Pico-8 -- not that I made much outside of Pico-8 to begin with! I must say I really liked the experience! The included demos are really useful. Special thanks to oli414 for the dialogue system, and to lexaloffle for the fun game making environment.
Feel free to provide feedback! If I had to start the game over, I would probably go for mechanics that better took into account the two buttons layout on Pico-8, haha. Still, I'm pretty happy with how this turned out.
Update: Fixed a typo and cleaned up a room visually.
Update #2: Added additional boss fight sound effects.
Update #3: Tweaked difficulty of first and final boss, and fixed bug where sight would return after dying to the final boss.
