On the first day of my attempt to escape what the remnants of the UN were apparently referring to as the "North American Nuclear Exclusion Zone," my scooter broke down near a rusty abandoned trailer where a bunch of racoons had just eaten all of the food inside. The racoons fled through the broken windows as soon as I entered. After thoroughly searching the entire trailer, the only thing I could find was a Cirno Nendoroid.
10/10 would slowly die of radiation poisoning while having lively hardtack tea parties with Cirno again
Yeah, I intentionally leaned more into the "road trip" aspect than the "nuclear winter" when it came to the overall tone of the soundtrack since I'm a fan of post-apocalyptic series that are oddly upbeat (like Girls' Last Tour, Humanity Has Declined, etc.), and the main character Kat isn't taking things as seriously as she probably should be. The musical style is still supposed to give a rough idea of the level of technology that was reached before nuclear war broke out though.
Thanks, kc! I do want to expand on this world some more, but I'm not sure what the best platform would be yet. For now, just assume it was pretty much a mutually assured destruction situation in the far future lol
Thanks! Yeah, I figured having a harsh penalty would be okay in this case since the game is pretty short and the player should fail at least a few times before figuring out what works best for them.
Thanks! I was considering adding something like that, but PICO-8 has pretty strict limits on a lot of things, including numbers, which wrap around at 32767. I'd have to change a lot of the code that handles distance to create a workaround (Internally, the distance is higher than what you see on screen). Maybe in the future though, if I feel like revisiting this game.
Hm, I did sort of get a Madoka vibe from the characters when I was writing theme songs for them, but I didn't really think about it actively either. It is one of my favorite anime though, and I probably have been influenced by how Yuki Kajiura composes character themes! Anyway, I'm glad you enjoyed the game!
