You can wall jump, and if you hold space you can do a short glide.
I probably should have put that somewhere in the controls.
Any details about the bundle at all? Will is be a charity bundle or will money go to devs/organizers or will it be a hybrid like humble? If there's a charity do you have any idea which one(s)?
I'm going for a Fantastic Voyage/Innerspace/Osmosis Jones style romp through a teenagers body at the height of puberty

The Pico8 engine piqued my interest for this Jam and I ended up making 2 games for it. The first, a match 3 game, was made inside 24 hours, and was my first Pico8 game (and my first introduction to LUA), the second took another 10 days and had an incredible scope, incorporating a 500ly wide procedurally generated galaxy, a list of tradable commodities and an upgradable ship. Thankfully I decided against actually having a flight model (and essentially making Elite inside of a fortnight).
I quickly hit Pico8's memory limit with a galaxy 1,000 Ly wide, even when using PRNG Seeds to only generate planets when needed. Downsizing it to 500 Ly solved that problem though.
Challenging, certainly. I may also be legally insane too.
Not much more to do for Tradum now. Got trading in, system jumping requires fuel now, the System intro screen now shows an image for the planet, and I put a title screen in.
Just the Ship upgrade screen, System Details screen and "Galactic Events" before I can call the game 'done'. Any time after that I can maybe add in actual missions.
