Some people have more difficulty seeing the illusion than others, but it's certainly there.</p> <p>To create the effect, all I really had to do was have the background move past the player at a constant speed. (It would also work if the player moves past the background at a constant speed.) To have a 3D effect with a leftwards-moving player or rightwards-moving background, the sunglass lens would have to be put over the left eye. The outlines on the player and the enemies also helped to make them pop out of the background.</p> <p>The effect is pretty neat and not too hard to implement in a PICO-8 game, so I'd like to see if anyone else tries a similar technique in their games.</p> https://www.lexaloffle.com/bbs/?tid=30520 https://www.lexaloffle.com/bbs/?tid=30520 Wed, 27 Dec 2017 15:42:16 UTC Theta Snake <p> <table><tr><td> <a href="/bbs/?pid=47496#p"> <img src="/bbs/thumbs/pico47495.png" style="height:256px"></a> </td><td width=10></td><td valign=top> <a href="/bbs/?pid=47496#p"> Theta Snake 1.0</a><br><br> by <a href="/bbs/?uid=26764"> jackson_allen</a> <br><br><br> <a href="/bbs/?pid=47496#p"> [Click to Play]</a> </td></tr></table> </p> <p>An angular take on the classic Snake.</p> <p>Steer with left and right arrow keys.<br /> Pause with X.</p> <p>Each mode gives different modifiers every six seconds.</p> <p><a href="twitter.com/Jackson_T_Allen">@Jackson_T_Allen</a></p> https://www.lexaloffle.com/bbs/?tid=30471 https://www.lexaloffle.com/bbs/?tid=30471 Mon, 18 Dec 2017 12:22:44 UTC Christmas Sweater Generator <p> <table><tr><td> <a href="/bbs/?pid=47248#p"> <img src="/bbs/thumbs/pico47247.png" style="height:256px"></a> </td><td width=10></td><td valign=top> <a href="/bbs/?pid=47248#p"> Christmas Sweater Generator 1.0</a><br><br> by <a href="/bbs/?uid=26764"> jackson_allen</a> <br><br><br> <a href="/bbs/?pid=47248#p"> [Click to Play]</a> </td></tr></table> </p> <p>Automatically generates a sweater every six seconds.</p> <p>Press Z to switch to manual mode.
