Nice game! Congrats for this jam entry! :)

Great demake! Good job! :)

Great! Thanks for your input!:)
Don't hesitate to share some images or links here!

Hey Aeneas Nin !

Further to your comment about “faking the GIF effect” in P8, I have been thinking for a long time how I can workaround this issue. I’m glad to tell you that I now have a solution as “P8 code” ! (along with the existing feature which creates GIFs)

Latest version now produces Pico8 lua code (in __lua__ section of the p8 file) which integrates a small program to display the image on Pico8 screen. This includes a list of “changing pixels” calculated by ImageToPico8 and then drawn on Pico8 side. The rendering of these innerstate noise pixels simulates the animation of the image.

In my first experiments, I was storing pixels as {x,y} coordinates. Then, I decided to store only the address (number between 0 and 16384 for a 128x128 screen) to save 50% of the tokens. Finally, what is ultimately stored are the differences between the current address and the previous address, thus saving some bytes. 

This new feature takes “87+n” tokens: one token for each “changing pixel” you want to draw (“n”) and 87 tokens for the built-in program itself.

  • You can adjust the number of tokens to allocate in your final p8 file (with the option -noisetokensNNNN : Allocate NNNN tokens of Pico-8 code) default is 2000 tokens = 1913 pixels.
  • You can remove comments in Pico-8 code to reduce byte size (“--” keywords) with option -nocommentsp8 

I would love to have your feedback on this update. If you like it, the RT of this tweet would be much appreciated ! Thanks ! :)

Fun short game with lots of starting characters (each with different staring moves)


Thanks ! :)

Is it possible to handle ".webp" animated images in project page (like it's already handled for GIFs ?)

I tried this HTML code but "picture" tag seems to be rewritten.

 <source srcset="" type="image/webp">   
 <source srcset="" type="image/gif">    
 <img src="" alt="Alt Text"> 

(Why am I using webp format? This format is smaller and thus pages could be loaded more quickly. Especially for GIF files which can be large and lossy. Optimizing loading time could help SEO.)

Thanks !

Hi Nick, 

I'm using Windows 10 too. 

Did you open a Windows Console? Could you check the troubleshooting section here:

If you still have the problem, could you share a screenshot of the error message?

Edit: Do you have administrator privileges on your machine?


Thanks for your feedback on Linux! I greatly appreciate! :) 

And thanks for your nice words about the image utility itself! I'm pleased you like it!

Thanks for making this game! :)

Thanks for your support and nice words!

I appreciate your feedback! Sure! In fact, such still pictures/examples with associated commands and the results would be an improvement.  About how to provide them, maybe an online "recap" page, as well as a downloadable separate example zip, with images full credits/source.

Also, I'd like to keep all my examples license-free, that is why I use resources from websites like unsplash.

As for converting images into animated p8, only the cosine example provided exists for now. I didn't include p8 code to simulate the noise effect because if your GIF has n frames, it would require n times the space in map data section, and I can't think about an elegant and compressed way to achieve this for now.

Thanks for your reply.

Indeed that's true.

However when you click on "Buy now" you only have the zip filename...

It would be nice to have both. Community » » butler · Created a new topic Zip file name

Thanks for having made butler! I'm using "butler push" and it's great! :)

Is there a way to specify the zip file which can be downloaded by the end-user? (That is, same as clicking "Change display name" when editing the page)

It seems that the default name is "" but I would like to add a project version as a suffix.

Thanks !

Like @voxel ( ), my pages are detected with "Product issues" (full error message below)

Is there anything that can be done to prevent these errors, (and thu, prevent the pages from being downranked) ?

Nice game! Thanks! I made it through stg 16 !

Thank you !! :)


Yeah sometimes playing as the dark side is a more interesting experience! ;)

Thanks !

Yeah Lexaloffle made a real gem while giving birth to their fantasy console. ^^

Thank you so much! 

PS: no jellyfish has been hurt during the creation process ! ;)

PS: Sorry for Jerry. 😔

Good job on the 3d models of the landscape and the character animation!

Nice score for a first try! ;)

Great video!

Thanks for your comments, about different palette colors,
and adding diversity (yes it's in Galaga or Galaxian, not in original space invaders but thank you anyway!)

Thanks a lot for your shout out about my other games as well!

Keep up! :)

Superb !! Awesome work, taking into account the harsh limitations of this machine !

Wow! Thanks for your time! Glad you liked it!

Maybe it will be a little easier if you save a little energy (that is, if don't mash the fire button!) :)

Dodge, Fire, Fool AI cannon, and Land on Earth!

In this "reversed" version of the arcade classic 'Space Invaders', you actually ARE the invaders!


Game name: Invasion Commander

Happy to share this with you! :D

Don't hesitate to send me your comments on the game page!

Thanks! I tried to adapt the difficulty but sometimes it's too easy or too hard... I'll try to find a workaround.

Thanks for the tip about Pico 8 export!

Same here.

It also seems that on forum ( Community » Game Development » Release Announcements) it is not possible anymore to post a new topic (or maybe it is deleted immediately since the image cannot be uploaded and/or embedded, probably)...


Thank you!

Thanks a lot for your kind words and for your donation !! :D

Thanks for your reply I will check all this.


Is there a way to use Itch installer (itch-setup.exe) to auto-detect the member username (login) ?

Is there an API ?

(I would like to use this to init ingame player name, to be used in leader boards)


Oops ! Sorry, my bad: the clue did show up. It says "Hold your strength"...

Maybe that's a help of some sort...

Anyway, thanks again and thanks for your time!

Hey Meowium99! Thank you so much for trying!
For your information it seems to bee an outdated version. In the current online version, there is an additionnal clue displayed when you click the sword 2 or 3 times (and when you did that à 6:00 ) it did not show up.
Maybe this will make it possible for you to progress even more !
Anyway, thanks again and thanks for your time!

Hey BlueJ, thanks for your kind comment.

About your issue, I tested earlier on Chrome (Version 73) on Windows 10 (I don't have Chrome OS) and I was unable to reproduce the issue you mentioned (even if I click on the red monster when it is in front of any door). I often use Firefox, and with Firefox on Windows 10 I never had this problem either. Since I don't have the problem it's tricky for me to debug.

Do you encounter the issue always in the very exact same moment or does it seem to be random?

Could you please also tell me if the executable version also have this issue? You may download executables for Windows/MacOS/Linux.


Wow! Stunning demake!! Great job and great use of pico-8 limitations! :)

Is it possible for example to generate 200 x "-50% sale" coupon codes which:
- can't be used after a defined date
- are all different and can't be used twice
- both

Thank you!

If the customer  is also "following" you, (that is to say, "has subscribed" to your account) I think it's ok.

If the customer is NOT following you, I think they don't want to be contacted.

The problem is that the email adresses currently listed in the payout section do not mention "IF" the customer is following you or not. I think this information could be interesting without saying directly their plain username.

Great! So I have added 3 binary executables:,,
Could you please pick & run the one which fits your OS ? Thanks a lot!

Hey Inferno, thanks for your patience.

I just tested on Chrome (Version 73) on Windows 10 (I don't have Chrome OS) and I was unable to reproduce the issue you mentioned (even if I click on the red monster when it is in front of any door).

I often use Firefox, and with Firefox on Windows 10 I never had this problem either.

Since I don't have the problem it's tricky for me to debug.

I know that there exists some other ways to publish Pico-8 games, for example by providing a binary executable which must be run on your computer. Maybe with this workaround the problem could be solved. Unfortunately I don't have any experience with this kind of Pico-8 publishing. Are you interested in testing it as an executable? Here's what I can do
