PicoTown is a city-building game made with Pico-8 inspired by classics like SimCity and new stuff like Cities Skylines.
It's my first city-builder after dropping Towny, a 3D moddable city sim game. I'm going to keep this small and simple so I will finish this during the jam.

Here's the game's set of buildings to build, along with natural elements. By the way, you can stay tuned by using the #citysimjam hashtag or #PicoTown on Twitter.

Like, I'm writing a totally embarassing song for PicoTown. Because bad music is better than no music for me.

No Twitter and Itch.io... -1 energy. That means that there's no energy in the town!

Thanks to everybody that helped me during this jam (NMFS, Devi Ever, PineCone Graphic) for helping me endure this jam and finish up this game.

Did one last fix for the game. Added use for the fire stations, fixed the happiness bug, corrected a name of one building and increased the max speed.
