From one Pico-8 cart to many

From the span of two evenings of doing some Pico-8 I went from hacking everything in one cart to having a workflow based on compression, serialization and outputing the result from many carts to a single one, increasing the reliability and speed of the process. And I’m still kinda surprised by how relatively easy it was. Let’s talk a bit about it. …

Wrap'a'Gift

Hello everyone. For the Pico8 Advent Calender Jam 2019, I actually released a game. Yes, you read this sentence correctly, I brought myself to start, plan and finish a game in time and make it pretty. If you don’t know me, that’s quite impressive for my level of laziness. Introducing Wrap’a’Gift, a small rhythm game where you have to not only reproduce the pattern your helper shows you but do it in the same rhythm as the small elf does to wrap the gift like a pro! …

Pico-8 Weekly January report

Hello everyone, this blog post is an attempt of a motnhly report of my Pico-8 weeklies. A bit late, though, I planned it to be posted around early February. If you’ve been following me on social networks, you could have seen me posting every Friday a new Pico-8 sketch since the first week of January.

A year of Pico-8 sketches

A WIP version of Sphere. One of my favorites sketches.[^1] Hello everyone and happy new year! 2017 has been a hectic year, yet during this year, I got a few good things, such as finally getting a job in gamedev and getting inspired to make Pico-8 sketches. I’m not going to introduce again (beware, french inside) that little fantasy console, but those last months, it got a few updates which sparked a new interest in me to write down some small carts for it. …

[Pico-8] Epic(o) Coaster? partie 2

Salut à tous! Voici le temps d’une petite mise à jour entre deux arrachage de cheveux sur d’autres projets. J’ai mis en place la mécanique de physique dans mon petit projet pour PICO-8 Et voilà ce que ça donne! Ça, c'était avant le moteur physique, heh. Enfin, là, c’était sans le moteur physique, désolé. Voici le dernier screenshot (pour l’instant): Voilà. C'est jôôôli et ça marche au poil! …

[Pico-8] Projet sur le pouce

Salut à tous! J’ai eu une idée un peu idiote hier après-midi. Après avoir retouché un peu PICO-8, j’ai eu l’idée de reprendre un des vieux projets que j’ai abandonné des années auparavant par impossibilité technique de le réaliser mais de le refaire sur PICO. Du coup, me revoilà en train de refaire un demake de Epic Coaster. Voilà le bestiau au moment où je vous écris. Donc voilà, on verra ce que ça donne, c’est pas comme si je croulais déjà sous les projets ou obligations. …

[PICO-8] Présentation d'une console virtuelle

Oui, je suis sous Windows 8.1, ET ALORS? Salut à tous! J’ai découvert il y a déjà quelques mois un projet assez farfelu mais intéressant dans le monde du gamedev. Lexaloffle est d’abord connu pour avoir conçu Voxatron, l’un des tous premiers jeux conçus avant tout pour les futurs premiers affichages holographiques ou 3D1 et il a publié dernièrement une alpha pour tous les acheteurs de Voxatron un peu avant la LDJAM de son dernier projet : une console pesudo-retro basé sur du lua, un écran 128*128@16 couleurs et un son 8-bit sur 4 canaux : PICO-8. …
