Time to get situated with Pico-8.
Powered through this this tutorial and started Fan-zine 1, written by the creators of Pico-8 and others.
I’m all informed about the capabilities here. It’s got a nice little command line and editors for code, sprites, music and sound effects. Extremely simple.
I’ll be building the example game from the Fan-zine for the next few days. Especially looking forward to making some music.
