This was really cool, I loved the coding mechanics.


Thank you!

This was a very clever entry.
I love how you tied it all into the mystery.
The way you re-created the PICO-8 UI is also rather cool.
Controls/collision were a little bit tricky at times, but very forgivable.
Alas, I didn't complete it - I got the key, unlocked the last tab and got stuck - but had fun for sure.
Congrats and good luck, fellow Jammer! 😀


Thank you Paul! Yes, controls and collisions would have needed more refinement, totally agree. Recreating the GUI was a lot of fun ;) Thanks for giving it a try! In case you want to give it another shot after getting the key and being on the last tab, a little hint:

[Spoiler coming up]

In case you got stuck after turning on gravity: try getting close to the cursor ;-)


Interesting idea! I included it in my Toy Box Jam compilation video series, if you’d like to take a look! :)


Thanks a lot!


This is rad! The puzzles are super well done, and dare i say... subversive? Lots of fun for a pico8 dev. I loved it.


Thank you so much!


Aw you’re welcome! Yeah Pony Island is a trip!


Also, what a trippy PONY ISLAND kinda game! Interesting!


Thanks Tom! Have yet to give Pony Island a go, I hear great things about it.

In the end I just didn't have the time to fully do what I wanted to do with it. But I guess that's the nature of jams and deadlines ;) 

Looking forward to the other entries and thank you for putting together a great jam.
