All | Following | PICO-8 | Voxatron | General :: [Thread List]

This is my first day here, I got Pico-8 from a humble bundle and been thinking about getting into it for a while, I set up everything to start with it a couple of days ago and TODAY I will start reading some tutorials because I know nothing about how to code in Lua but I'm always up for a challenge.

So let's see how far I can reach this day.

What Is This Website All About?
WritingPaperSucks is the first uncensored paper writing review site on the Internet. I do my own research on different writing services, place some orders there and share my feedback with you. Unlike most of the fake paper review sites, I do actually go through all steps of order, read all Terms of Use and other policies and try to discover all hidden rocks most services have. It is your right to believe me or not, I do not claim 100% accuracy in my judgment. However, after reading my reviews you will be able to evaluate every writing service as critically, as possible and get custom discounts for my favourite writing services. So brace yourself and follow me in this journey!

I´m new to pico 8 and I do my first steps in moving an sprite through an dungeon.

that works well, but i the sprite moves on and on while keeping the button pressed

I want to stop after moving one tile in the pressed direction

so for moving on and on you have to press the button over and over again

How can I do this?

I tried it whith

until btn()==true

but it doesnt work

Thanks for help!!

I'm a PICo8 noob, trying to follow Dylan Bennett's tutorial on YouTube: "PICO-8 Top-Down Adventure Game Tutorial - Step 5/10" and I'm not understanding why it's not working. I've tirelessly, study my code vs video and I cannot see the issue.

Please help!

Mod of Celeste.
Not finished as of Nov. 17, 2019

Will finish the next day!

You play as Madeline, exploring a city. There's one thing missing, though- where are the people?
Enjoy a retextured, fresh new Celeste experience with 32 rooms.

"Tweetcart" which plays Piano Phase by the composer Steve Reich. The music is generated and played in the space of 280 characters (one tweet)!

Here's the code:

o={0,0}for i=0,31 do for e=0,1 do
poke2(j+i*2+544+68*e,21120+i+e*64) end end
function _update60()for i=1,d do
for e=1,2 do
if g%(90-e)<1then
print("steve reich-piano phase")

I made some fruits for pico-8. Feel free to use it, but please mention my name (gwalker76 or 8x8Studio) in your game. Thanks :)

Hello everyone,
my name is North Wolf, nice to meet you.

I'm a 23 year old Italian and i've been playing video games since I was 5 years old.
And ... nothing, that's it.
I can't wait to know more about PICO-8, his community and all the game made so far.

See you around,

North Wolf

Whenever I log in via username and password, it doesn't work, even if I used the correct password. I have to use the email login. Is there something I'm missing?

Here is my code so far. I am trying to get the fish on the screen to move in an upward motion by itself, after I can master this I am going to try to do a collision detection for if the frog touches the fish = game over. Can anyone give me pointers on making the fish move by itself? Thank you

function _update()
if fish_sprite > 19 then

if char_sprite > 9 then

if btn(0) then char_x=char_x-1 sfx(05) end
if btn(1) then char_x=char_x+1 sfx(05) end
if btn(2) then char_y=char_y-1 sfx(05) end
if btn(3) then char_y=char_y+1 sfx(05) end

if fish_sprite > 19 then

function _draw()
spr( char_sprite, char_x, char_y)
spr( fish_sprite, fish_x, fish_y)

print( time())

Is this working with Pico8?
Could you please have a look:
Where can I download the rasberry pi version?

Pico Lib

After making some games in pico8 I found I was copy and pasting some functions, code designs. With the new(ish) "#include" functionality, I decided to pull those things out into a cart to use as a library. Its still a WIP but right now includes

  • Vector obj with some functions
  • screenshake manager
  • gamestate manager
  • Actor class with optional..
    • animation (multiple sprites per frame)
    • collision (with map flag 1 and other actors)

One thing I've noticed becoming a little more popular is non-violent gameplay and I really like this trend, even if it's rather miniscule compared to the broader amount of games being made. Violence is a part of our media in general (see the writings of bell hooks for more info) and so it's nice when a game provides different kinds of solutions to obstacles that don't involve 'kicking something else's ass'. Notably, most of these games, though, tend to be in visual novels, but I suspect that there's an infinite amount of possibilities to do non-violent games that aren't simply puzzles or choose your own dating adventure (i'm being sarcastic with the latter, btw) but are still high on action and skill.

I'm just writing this in hopes someone else sees this an possibly thinks of an alternative to the 'kill enemies' approach to gaming. It's been done a billion times (probably literally a billion times at this point) and while I do enjoy a shooty shooty game as I'm an arcade junkie by nature, there's a lot of games I've played that aren't inherently violent and get my palms super sweaty...and yes, I consider abstract games to be of this nature (such as Every Extend, etc.)

If anyone cares to chime in, please do. Again, I'm not making value or moral judgements here, it's just something that I think has great room for exploration thematically within game design and I look forward to being surprised because dude with gun or person that squishes enemies by stomping on them is definitely a crowded genre/concept.

Peace and keep on making games, even if they do involve a little bit of shooty shooty. I'll still be there to play it!
