Find the hidden treasure. I created this game as a gift for my nephew, I thought it would be a fun way to provide him with a special birthday gift. It was a ton of fun to make and I hope you enjoy it. It was actually done last year, but I never got around to putting it up on BBs.</p> <p>Based off the adventure tutorial by <a href=""><a href=""> @MBoffin</a></a>. </p> <p>Special thanks to <a href=""><a href=""> @Gruber</a></a> for bringing the game to life with amazing tunes.</p> <p>Disclosure: The actual treasure has already been claimed :).</p> Fri, 25 Mar 2022 19:21:17 UTC Lemonade Stand <p> <table><tr><td> <a href="/bbs/?pid=84683#p"> <img src="/bbs/thumbs/pico8_lemonade_stand-0.png" style="height:256px"></a> </td><td width=10></td><td valign=top> <a href="/bbs/?pid=84683#p"> lemonade_stand</a><br><br> by <a href="/bbs/?uid=44659"> thoughtlesslabs</a> <br><br><br> <a href="/bbs/?pid=84683#p"> [Click to Play]</a> </td></tr></table> </p> <h2>Do you have what it takes to run a lemonade empire?</h2> <p>Try your luck with Lemonade Stand.

Kernels are now all very excited about popping.</p> <p>UPDATE5: Maybe you aren't hungry for too many kernels. How about being able to choose from a few random amounts of kernels to pop? Well, now you've got it!</p> <p>UPDATE6: Improved kernel and corn sprites and RANDOM rotation of popped kernels :)</p> <p>UPDATE7: Added screenshake to popped kernels for a little bit of juicyness as well as changed the titles for the menu selection.</p> <p>UPDATE8: I'm calling this trial game done. It's incredibly over-engineered and there are likely many places that can be optimized, but I love this little game that I made.</p> Fri, 19 Jun 2020 20:41:55 UTC
