Phases: PICO-8 Demo

May 30th, 2021

Yesterday I spent some time learning PICO-8, a “fantasy console for making, sharing and playing tiny games and other computer programs.”

PICO-8 has built-in code and sprite editors, as well as a music tracker (!). So naturally I built a demo to learn the system, called Phases. Unfortunately I couldn’t figure out how to have more than one music pattern, so the audio is a bit repetitive, but hopefully the visual FX are fun to watch!

You can download and run the PICO-8 cartridge file with the .p8.png file below.
