Hi friends! I'm new to the PICO-8 scene, but I have been playing around with old consoles for a while now. 6502 assembly is my main jig within the Atari, Commodore, & NES world, but I sure am liking the ease of Lua and carefully picked limitations of this "fantasy console". If you're interested in some of the other work I've done, check out my website at https://dcdalrymple.com/.
Enter a world of underwater caverns off the coast of an uninhabited island in my new PICO-8 metroidvania game, DIVER. Explore mysterious rooms and hidden passageways where you will come face-to-face with hungry aquatic creatures.
Note: This game is still somewhat in beta with a few minor bugs, but I may not go back to it anytime soon. It's fully playable til the end, just be resourceful with your ammunition!
Simple boat game where you try to make it through all of the buoys to gain more points. You only can mess up 3 times before you've got to call it quits. Really easy at the beginning, but gets near impossible as the buoys start to appear closer and closer together. Good luck!
I've been hard at work on a metroidvania-style cart with a bit of its own flavor. This has been super fun to do on pico-8, and I'll post it up once I feel at least 90%+ happy with it. In the meantime, does anybody have any recommendations for similar style platformer/exploration pico-8 carts to try out?
Real simple dropper game. Nothing special, just squeezing a few games out as easter eggs in some of the websites I work on.
Everything works pretty well for a 175 line game, but the dropper "AI" could probably use some polishing up.
My first short, simple game attempt while learning some of the basics of PICO-8. There's a lot of collision issues and some Space Invader ripping off, but it's... a game?
