Pretty and fun :)


Love the aesthetics and gameplay! Nice job. It might totally change the gameplay, but for players without game controllers, it'd be nice if the player could follow the cursor.

I cant download it. Its supposed to be a zip or exe file, but for me its png


That's fine! It's meant to be a .png file! I know, that's an image file but all of the information for the game is actually stored in the .png file.

You will need a copy of Pico8 to play the game and download the .png file into your carts folder. You can then use the 'load' command followed by the filename of the game file to load the game and then use 'run' to run the game.

Hope this helps somewhat but feel free to contact me if you're still unsure about something!

Sorry i'm really late. Ok, so I followed the instructions and am now able to run the game. However, I can't play the game itself. When I click start>Continue, nothing happens. If I press reset cart, Nothing happens for me to be able to play.

are you using the arrow keys and z to select an option?

Really cool game ;) i love your attention to details .
