Pico-8! @ Samhällsonanin

A day into it - very fun, especially with a proper game-pad! Check it out or don’t. Not very many mentions of Pico-8 on Lemmy so I figure it has its place.

pico 8 is excellent. I picked it up years ago when it was on humble bundle for the first time. I collect a bunch of the games and put them on my back up rasp pi desktop. check out ‘Dusk Child’ and the original Celeste.

PICO-8 is awesome! Might also want to check out TIC-80, an open source alternative. https://github.com/nesbox/TIC-80

Yeah, quickly came about Tic-80/after this post. I like it more as a platform to put my eggs into so to speak but Pico-8 for the the number of games available.

Found this series, a slow, almost too slow introduction into coding games on Tic-80 in lua: https://youtube.com/playlist?list=PLvOT6zBnJyYF3FzmfXz2QXMA8xk7JHA_b

Edit: Not very keen on the resolution of TIC-80 (240x136 (1.76:1)). Odd choice when they could have gone for 3:2, 4:3 or true 16:9 aspect ratio at least.

Gaming on the GNU/Linux operating system.
