Hey Pico-Community,

finally released my first Pico-8 game on itch after discovering the system two weeks ago. Following the motto "if you're not ashamed, you didn't release early enough" I "composed" two songs after watching a 5 minute tutorial, put it online today and mentally marked the game as "finished".

Being a "serious" software developer in real life, it felt refreshing to just hack around, change the motto of the game a couple of times and ignore any best practices of serious development for once -- I'm aware there's a lot to improve code-wise, but this is left for the next games :-)

Currently I'm extremely excited to look at other games, think about game ideas, hack around and enjoy the friendly discussions.

Happy Hacking,

I've recently discovered Pico8 and am falling in love with it. One small quirk that might be easy to change but I did not figure out: how can I change the background of the environment, i.e. everything besides the Pico8 window in fullscreen mode on MacOS? It's a rather distracting red-black striped pattern and I'd favour something else, e.g. everything in black.

Any hints are appreciated,
