Except I soon realized a second thing. I am <strong>the worst</strong> at naming things.<br /> So I have been wondering, if you can come up with a name.<br /> First, the game idea, ect.</p> <p>You are this little white blob and you have a power/disadvantage. Instead of seeing the world as a whole, you see it in parts, meaning you might see:<br /> ~~-<strong><br /> but then you see<br /> --~__</strong><br /> or by pressing the button again, you get to see a different part of the game world.<br /> Then the almighty sphlor breaks, and you have to re-make it.</p> <p>My name was: Xyil, but I don't think that is good.</p> Mon, 16 May 2022 23:44:33 UTC Where do I start? <p>I am very new to pico-8 and want to know where to start.<br /> I know, there are many tutorials out there, but I tried one and I didn't feel like I was progressing in understanding.<br /> Where do I go to start?</p> Thu, 12 May 2022 00:42:45 UTC
