check out a pico-8 game called “Signed by '89”. It is a rock band simulator where you have to get your band signed before the Bass player gets sent to military school. Surprisingly complex considering it was done in pico-8
Saw that in the text file. I used WinSCP to transfer a couple of carts into the .lexaloffle/pico-8/carts folder, started up Pico 8, but no joy. There is a little folder icon in with the ‘New’, ‘Featured’ etc, so I thought the would appear there, but no I’ll play about more and see if I’m possibly/probably doing something stupid!
Update: I was doing something stupid. I was renaming the .png to make it easier to identify the game. I deleted the .p8 before the .png and that’s what screwed it up. So if you rename them, make sure the .p8 is there.
Cool, off to the Lexaloffle website to look for more games.
Honestly I think Pico-8 was made for the GameShell. I bought it when I got my PocketCHIP, but that thing was unplayable. The GameShell has the perfect form factor and controls for this.
Some games I found in the featured tab:
Talos Descent - A simple Canabalt-like game in which you have to navigate as you fall through a cave at increasingly faster speeds.
Skulldude - A Zelda-directional shooter hybrid with snazzy aesthetics.
Ga Tasu - A colorful Invaders clone with excessive audio volume.
Alpine Alpaca - A different take on the skiing descent game in which you play cards to navigate the course turn by turn.
It Takes Four to Party - A weird casual RPG in which you switch characters every so often. Just go with the flow and you’ll get it eventually.
Delunky - Sort of a nice Spelunky demake.
Omega Enforcer - A Galaga-like bullet hell lite shoot-em-up.
