Good day, oulipo.social! A fascinating #35c3 talk told us about this mastodon instantiation. This will bring much fun.

Changed the visibility of my cross-posted toots to public. I've repeatedly been told that I usually write "high-quality, low-noise, local timeline-compatible content". Ping me if I start being annoying, and I'll change it back again. :)

And, um, there's also the "0h Game Jam", which takes place from 02:00–02:00 each autumn, when shifting the clocks back from daylight saving time! :D 0hgame.eu

TIL about the "One Hour Game Jam" – every Saturday at 20:00 UTC, a theme is announced on onehourgamejam.com, and you have 1 hour to make a game. After that, the organizers will play all games on Twitch. Sounds fun! :)

Fun fact: You can move the "cls(1)" to the beginning of the line for extra creepyness! :D

(Updated version where the li'l soot sprites slowly open their eyes :3)


c=circfill::_::cls(1)srand(5)for y=64,192,4 do
s=rnd(5)+2x=(rnd(128)+2*s*t())%148-10
y-=x-9*sin((y+t())/5)for a=0,1,.3/s do
line(x,y,x+sin(a)*s*1.3,y+cos(a)*s*1.3)end
c(x,y,s)for e=0,1 do
u,v=x+e*s*.6,y-.3*s
c(u,v,(.4-y/500%.3)*s,7)c(u,v,0,0)end
end
flip()goto _


c=circfill::_::cls(1)srand(5)for y=64,192,4 do
s=rnd(5)+2x=(rnd(128)+2*s*t())%148-10
y+=9*sin((y+t())/5)-x
for a=0,1,.3/s do
line(x,y,x+sin(a)*s*1.3,y+cos(a)*s*1.3)end
c(x,y,s)for e=0,1 do
u,v=x+e*s*.6,y-.3*s
c(u,v,s/3,7)c(u,v,0,0)end
end
flip()goto _

Whoa, this game really has *super* realistic graphics! ✨

If you're on Arch Linux, there's an AUR package called "marblemarcher".

HackerPoet's "Marble Marcher" is an open-source racing game taking place on the surface of various 3D fractals. It's super trippy, and unlike anything I've seen before! codeparade.itch.io/marblemarch

And sometimes, PICO-8 ist just plain weird, in a good way: The sin() function takes values between 0 and 1 (so that you can think in "half turns", "full turns" and so on). It also is inverted, to allow the arguments to atan2() be in screen coordinates, with the y-axis going down.

You can save games to "PNG cartridges" and give them to people! You can also export web versions and binaries for Linux, macOS, and Windows, and there's a "save a GIF of the last 8 seconds" feature!

For what it's worth, I think PICO-8 has a lovely aesthetic, and it comes with built-in sprite and map editors, and a simple music tracker!
