PICO-8 – Virtual Game Console
PICO-8 is a fantasy console for making, sharing and playing tiny games and other computer programs. When you turn it on, the machine greets you with a shell for typing in Lua commands and provides simple built-in tools for creating your own cartridges.
Display 128×128 16 colours Cartridge Size 32k Sound 4 channel chip blerps Code Lua Sprites 128 8×8 sprites Map 128×32 cels Controls 2 6-button joysticks
The harsh limitations of PICO-8 are carefully chosen to be fun to work with, encourage small but expressive designs and hopefully to give PICO-8 cartridges their own particular look and feel.
PICO-8 has tools for editing code, music, sound, sprites,maps built right into the console. Create a whole game or program in one sitting without needing to leave the cosy development environment!
PICO-8 cartidges can be saved in a special .png format and sent directly to other users or played via an online cart player.
