Play gameVisit Slap Happy Scientist's game page
What was your theme you chose!?
You're a scientist who annoys town guards by slapping them
Any obstacles you found while working that were hard to overcome?
I had never used PICO-8 or Lua before this gamejam, so learning the nuances of both a new language and engine ultimately led to me not finishing the game. Collisions especially hung me up.
Anything you had to ultimately cut from the game due to time or lack of knowledge?
Unfortunately the slapping mechanic didn't work because I couldn't get the scientist to collide with the guards.
Anything really cool you learned?
I learned a lot about PICO-8 and Lua and want to continue making games in PICO-8 occasionally, but I realized how much I want to stick with Unity =)
Do you think you will continue this project?
I don't think so. If I did, I would probably restart because my code is extra saucy spaghetti.
