When the highlights of the seaweed are reflected on the left side, it looks beautiful. I like textures. And of course I like sushi.

The used cream tube, even the cap is so real!

The shine of the noodles, the toppings, the shading adapted to select the most effective areas!

It's well placed.

Thank you!
I was not sure about the choice of palette but I believe it is the best.

Today's weather is raining caramel sauce!☔😋

Thanks!
I enjoyed doing the pixel art representations of the metals.

Great job staying within the limits!
Didn't show the pentaprism back texture, but that seems like the best option.

Who would have imagined that the pyramids held such secrets?
It's an amazing sight of mystery and terror!

Woah, I'm playing that game now!
Player's House is a nice arrangement!

It has a large leaf on the end. By comparing it to the size of the hut, you can imagine a fantasy world.

I was plagued by this symptom during production. But now it's my favorite feature!
Thanks!

That's right.
I found out this time that it is difficult to create details in low poly. It's a challenge for the future!

Thank you!
The behavior of the textures is accidental, but the result is interesting!😉

Thanks for the fav!
I remember that textures like the phoenix took half the time to create.

Thanks for looking!
The floor is covered with tatami mats, but as a result I chose a perspective looking up at the ceiling.

It's a solid storefront!

And an apple tree!

Funny building design with cute textures of food on it!

Are you looking at the fruit in the sky through a telescope?😋

The shape of the roof is very stylish!

I also like the detailed objects around it.

I played with Legos too!

The manual art is so cute.

This is because I believe that by doing so, I can keep user support, game guides, and other information together in one marketplace, saving users the hassle of managing game files and going back and forth between sites.

Hello. MacroHardOnFire.

Thank you for contacting me!

I needed to set the rating on steam to sell to Brazil.
Please try again to see if you can purchase the game now that you have done so.

The SP version is currently not available.
You can purchase the CompletePack on Steam.
It comes with the features of the SP version (avatar change and music player) and an extra viewer.

You saw it on reddit!
Anyway, thanks for finding it!

Wow! Thanks for comment a look!

PICO-8 provides a good space to make little games! However, when you try to make a large scale game (including KONSAIRI), the opposite is true: development starts to go a long way. As such, the original cart for this game should be pretty hard to decipher. I plan to open up the libraries, frameworks, and other parts of the game that I use for the cart to share explanations and know-how if the game is somewhat popular. Thanks for taking a look!

Manual

This game (PICO-8) can be captured with F3 and F4 keys to share GIF movies! Japanese manual

Veggies

Here's how they work


Please do not throw the item, but raise it! (X button only)


"BEET" has no effect on awake NPCs.

When you used "FENNEL", did you see the doors around you? (You don't need a door to hear the sound.)


To see the wind caused by "PERSNIP", find the air and wind flow. (Animated background


"Burdock" can be extended to the ceiling, but it will break on walls, uneven surfaces, or in unstable places where the wind blows. (Scaffolding blocks, animated tiles)

    1. Wake up an NPC sleeping in the area with "BEET".
    2. Have a meal with the NPC. The NPC will give you a "PIN"  to help you find a way to get around.
    3. Aim at the "PIN" on the screen and move until you hit a door or off screen.
      (Sometimes a path outside of the current area will become moveable.

    You are far away from your nest.
    With no clues, you aim for your own nest.

    How do I get the item?
    I don't know where the root vegetables are.

    1. Find a grass that glows when you touch it.
    2. Press "X" on the glowing grass.
    3. Touch the thing you pulled out.


    Item taken. But I don't know how to use it.

    You have to hold the item (root vegetable) in your hand.

    1. Press DOWN KEY and ENTER (START) to open the inventory screen.
    2. Move the cursor over the item and press "Z" (O button).
    3. Press "X" while holding the item in your hand.

    Hi! I also took part in the FFS 2020, so I checked your entry.

    I like the principle, and gaining important gameplay stats after cooking feels good, it reminds me on a GBC Smurfs (スマーフ) game where you increased jump height in each level by picking sarsaparilla. The downside is that you start very slow and cannot jump high at all, which makes sense in terms of gameplay (you cannot avoid the enemies by jumping yet), but feels weird if you consider the game a platformer.

    I noticed a few issues in the game:

    Animation: animations have a long delay/lag after input (not the start of the animation, but the action confirmation). In particular, when giving vegetable to animal (Emit Skill) and throwing vegetable (Purify enemy). So the player receives feedback a bit late and may sometimes stop holding the button, unsure if the action is working or not. I’m also unsure about the input order, sometimes I hold the direction and press X hoping I’ll throw the vegetable but end up running into the enemy.

    Design: slightly related to this, the first enemies are on a descending slope. The character throws the vegetable forward so it’s hard to hit them right. Apparently it works thanks to their wide hitboxes but I didn’t feel confident when throwing the vegetables at them.

    Design: enemies suddenly appear out of nowhere and hurt you. There should appear some time ahead so the player has the time to react and attack/dodge them.

    Bug: can open inventory (down+Enter) during intro cinematics (the color palette is lighter, so the inventory looks brigher too)

    Bug: after cooking with the 2nd animal (2nd screen), the hint arrow was pointing left instead of right. If I went back to the first screen, the arrow would be pointing right again.

    Bug?: You can give a vegetable to an enemy, and the animation performs correctly but nothing happens, it doesn’t purify the enemy, you’d better thow the vegetable at it. I don’t know if it’s intended.

    (英語で全部わからなかったら、日本語でも説明できます)

    Hi, komehara. Thank you very much for your a lot of feedback and playing the game!

    As you say, there's a lot more to stress a new player. Many factors make it difficult to balance the game.

    Animations for performing some actions are slow and useless. In addition, you need to deal with suddenly appearing enemies.

    These are alleviated as they grow.

    • Agility: Speed of action (Animation)
    • Wariness: Horizontal distance where enemies can be found

    In the beginning, we will reconsider our journey so that we can feel the need. (E.g. You don't need to jump to avoid it. Appear, but not hitting enemies)

    Bug: can open inventory (down+Enter) during intro cinematics

    This is likely to be possible soon!

    Bug: after cooking with the 2nd animal (2nd screen), the hint arrow was pointing left instead of right.

    In this game, after cooking with NPC (animal), possible area movement points "arrows" will appear. (NPC will tell you the way.) The first NPC spawns a point to the next area, the second NPC spawns a point to return. (The third NPC will spawn another point.)

    Eventually, multiple arrows will appear on the screen. At first it is a straight road, but not all.

    Bug?: You can give a vegetable to an enemy, 

    hmm... 

    Which vegetable was this? At least Beet (red vegetables) has confirmed that nothing happens. Other vegetables have other Emit Skill.

    unsure if the action is working or not.

    I have an idea. It is going to be solved with something like a gauge.

    Once the problem is resolved, you will be notified via devlog.

    Thank you.


    komehara197 days ago

    OK, I didn’t know about Wariness. And yes, you can have a first enemy appearing on top of a platform above the character so it’s easy to walk under it and stay safe.

    For the arrow, if I understood correctly, they just indicate neighboring areas/spawn points. For a new player, I think they look like hints for the next destination (like the GO!! arrow in beat’em up games), but you may make it clear by adding a small text “checkpoint” or “area exit” or a corresponding icon if a text is too long.

    I don’t remember which vegetable I used on the enemy. Actually I just hold the X button in front of the enemy, so maybe it did nothing but as it disappeared just on the enemy’s sprite it gave me the impression I gave it? I should try avoid by Emitting when there is nothing around. In any case, it’s weird I’m losing the ingredient if it does nothing. I should probably keep it in my inventory if I didn’t consume it.

    A time gauge may help yes. I would rather have faster animations, but apparently you’re saying slow animations are part of design because Agility would affect animation speed (including action animations, and not only motion).

    I don’t think it is necessary for Emitting or other actions used in a “safe” context: since there are no enemies around, it doesn’t change the gameplay whether the action takes time or not, since nothing bad can happen during the animation.

    By the way, I played your other game PITMAP. Just the tutorial, but I was quite impressed. I didn’t expect that kind of game, I think you like mixing genres not commonly together! (I played directly on your website using my Twitter account; the itch.io version doesn’t seem to react to my input (I use Firefox on Linux))

    hi, again!

    Thanks for the feedback. I want to reflect them as much as possible. And please understand that many specification changes are difficult.

    The arrow marker that looks like a destination will be abolished and replaced with a pin marker.  (It also takes into account the pico8 capacity limit.) Also, when the player arrives in the area for the first time, the player will be informed by scrolling that the NPC is in the back. It is a plan. But these may not be the perfect solution either.

    The disappeared vegetables may be a "door block flip" or "wind blowing" emit skill. I want to add GFX to all skills, and I need a description to show what happened. (I posted a temporary skill list on the jam page.)

    The concept of time will come out clearly in the next version upgrade. HP decreases gradually in areas other than the large trees, and a certain waiting time is required to eat again with NPC. At this time, the animation speed has a small effect. Especially when the number of times increases.

    PITMAP

    Woah!

    You Unearthed another my game! Thank you! That's like playing most of the game with a tutorial alone. Congrats!

    I wasn't prepared enough to run the game on the itch. (Cross-site scripting makes it difficult.)

    I've been playing since the beta version.
    And the other day, I finally cleared the difficulty level "EXTREME"!
    At the highest difficulty level, it takes a lot of luck and retries.
    There was also an extra dungeon, and this was a map with more of a puzzle element. It seems like it's for people who have a solid understanding of how to use magic.
    As far as normal play goes, there are relay points where you can use your magic to advance through the game, and if you want to try out the other modes, it can be a challenging game to break through by trial and error.

    Nice work! :)

    I am reporting a bug that disrupts the game balance.
    Keys 1-3 are convenient shortcuts to each tier facility selection, and this operation can be used in any development stage.
    The image shows a rocket silo built and rained on, which is now environment complete.


    I've been a fan since the Jam version.
    Having played the current version 0.31 from the previous version, I'm astounded at the transformation of the game's purpose into a system that is more geared towards completion!
    I like terraforming games like Sim-Earth where you can make lush, green, life inhabitable from barren land.

    I've played through the entire MAP. The only change seemed to be in how efficiently you can produce in a small area of land, as what you can do with these things remains the same on every map. If you plan to add new MAPs, I'm hoping for ideas that will change the play style, such as environments with limited natural energy available.

    Hi everyone!

    I released lowpoly(tiny! 15x15x15 size) modeling tool for pico8.

    This is mainly for those who have PICO-8, but you can load, view, and edit samples.
    You'll need the PICO-8 to actually use it for your own projects.

    PELOGEN (play on browser)


    A unique game combining puzzles and platformers. And unique and cute cats.
    The operation of this game is different depending on the cat, so you need to get used to it! (I think it is difficult to control where you land if your character is small and falls fast.)
    I really like the concept!

    A mouse collects cheese on a boat!
    I like the concept of this game. Often you can not move. 

    There is little timing when the randomly rotating passages are lined up straight.

    Maybe these passages are more fun to play if player can predict or control them to some extent.

    Paraglide in a field full of quiet nature. This atmosphere is the best!
    In addition, Game is operation can be completed only by turning  left/right and changing the viewpoint, making it simple and easy to understand.

    I think that it is easier to play if the aircraft is rising and the area where it rises is visually recognized.

    I hope that the game will be polished by choosing good reality and good virtuality.

    I enjoyed it! I completed the all stages!

    A simple tennis game where you do not need to hit the button to hit it.
    However, some power-up effects were exquisite and exciting points.
    Sometimes it's easy and sometimes it's not. That sparks my willingness to win next.
    nice work!

    Nice work!

    Fancy gun shooting 2D platformer!
    I was able to defeat the boss at the end of the stage!
    After defeating the boss of stage 3, it seems to be returning to stage 2.
    Does the game loop?
