If anyone checks this out I'm curious what you think, whether you find it fun to play around with, and whether you create any interesting designs (share screenshots!)</p> <p>I'm on the fence about trying to extend it to challenges / puzzles or just leave it as this open sandbox.</p> Tue, 22 Sep 2020 06:03:30 UTC Simple 2D endless scrolling space <p> <table><tr><td> <a href="/bbs/?pid=81785#p"> <img src="/bbs/thumbs/pico8_nufuzuwota-1.png" style="height:256px"></a> </td><td width=10></td><td valign=top> <a href="/bbs/?pid=81785#p"> Freeship 0.1</a><br><br> by <a href="/bbs/?uid=46887"> icegoat</a> <br><br><br> <a href="/bbs/?pid=81785#p"> [Click to Play]</a> </td></tr></table> </p> <p>I just came across Pico-8, did a few tutorials last weekend, and here's my first cart-- a spaceship flying over an endless 2D parallax scrolling background (with more layers that get added in over time).</p> <p>The whole experience was a lot of fun for someone who rarely writes software-- just poking around within the tool and trying things out. Thank you to everyone who developed Pico-8 and posted tutorials and tips!</p> <p>I didn't plan to share anything because this isn't a &quot;game&quot; and I expect the code has all sorts of ugly parts I <em>should</em> clean up. But I saw a talk about how part of the concept is just encouraging sharing in any form. So why not... feedback welcome.</p> <p>p.s. thanks to <a href=""> @Gruber</a> for the music shared in the Pico-8 Tunes #1 cart.</p> Mon, 14 Sep 2020 00:27:32 UTC
