Coming from Python the syntax was a little weird but was easy enough to get around (i hate tables).</p> <p>Eventually i found a video series from Dylan Bennett (<a href="https://www.lexaloffle.com/bbs/?uid=10198"> <a href="https://www.lexaloffle.com/bbs/?uid=10198"> @MBoffin</a></a>) describing how to create a simple top down adventure game</p> <p>After that @Dad Jr. and I collaborated, and today we believe we have a demo ready for use!</p> <h1>Mally and the Missing Manuscript</h1> <p> <table><tr><td> <a href="/bbs/?pid=86114#p"> <img src="/bbs/thumbs/pico8_matmm_demo1-0.png" style="height:256px"></a> </td><td width=10></td><td valign=top> <a href="/bbs/?pid=86114#p"> Mally and the Missing Manuscript - Floor 1 Demo</a><br><br> by <a href="/bbs/?uid=49140"> zerkdev</a> <br><br><br> <a href="/bbs/?pid=86114#p"> [Click to Play]</a> </td></tr></table> </p> <h2>Setting</h2> <p>You are Mally, an archivist working for the local museum. </p> <p>One day a patron requests to see a manuscript from the old archives located in the ruined basement, a place no one has been in since the museum was rebuilt years ago.</p> <p>Can you safely traverse the old archives, and find the missing manuscript?</p> <h2>How to Play</h2> <h3>Controls</h3> <p>Arrows: Movement / Turn Actions</p> <p>❎/X/5: Turn Actions<br /> 🅾️/Z/4: Contextual Actions</p> <h3>Items</h3> <p><strong>Bombs</strong></p> <ul> <li>Can Destroy cracked walls and skeletons.
