bajinaji [Lexaloffle Blog Feed] Request discussion <p>I heard of Pico-8 on the Indie retro news blog, and loved the idea. I quickly purchased the &quot;soft hardware&quot; implementation, and I love it. What a great community, and what a great idea.<br /> I love the restrictions ... except for one!<br /> I feel that the cartridge limit is restrictive. I mean, I know it's &quot;meant&quot; to be restrictive, and I appreciate that it forces a certain kind of game - or at least a certain way of thinking about games - HOWEVER I also feel that the resolution and interface restrictions control the type of software developed beautifully.<br /> With more &quot;RAM&quot; (or is it ROM if we're talking about a cartridge? Soft ROM :)?) we could see some amazing games with great depth catering to the display hardware restrictions.<br /> If simply allowing any size cartridge is out of the question, what about considering several &quot;categories&quot;, so we could have 64, 128, and 256k cartridge categories, for instance?</p> <p>ps<br /> None of this is any kind of negative or &quot;I know better than thou&quot;. I love what you have created!</p> <p>Cheers,</p> <p>Rob</p> Sun, 01 Nov 2015 21:16:12 UTC
