Following the motto &quot;if you're not ashamed, you didn't release early enough&quot; I &quot;composed&quot; two songs after watching a 5 minute tutorial, put it online today and mentally marked the game as &quot;finished&quot;.</p> <p>Being a &quot;serious&quot; software developer in real life, it felt refreshing to just hack around, change the motto of the game a couple of times and ignore any best practices of serious development for once -- I'm aware there's a lot to improve code-wise, but this is left for the next games :-)</p> <p>Currently I'm extremely excited to look at other games, think about game ideas, hack around and enjoy the friendly discussions.</p> <p>Happy Hacking,<br /> Michael</p> Sat, 31 Jul 2021 18:45:10 UTC Change background of Pico8 in fullscreen mode (on mac) <p>Hello,</p> <p>I've recently discovered Pico8 and am falling in love with it. One small quirk that might be easy to change but I did not figure out: how can I change the background of the environment, i.e. everything besides the Pico8 window in fullscreen mode on MacOS? It's a rather distracting red-black striped pattern and I'd favour something else, e.g. everything in black.</p> <p>Any hints are appreciated,<br /> Thanks,<br /> Michael</p> Sat, 17 Jul 2021 17:07:25 UTC
