Try triggering the init() that’s usually how I do it. ;)

I love the atmosphere playing this game, it’s cute and has a mystery element that makes you want to keep playing (though I did not completely finish it). The dialogue is so well done, and the vibrant style and animations are somewhat dreamlike. Really, I cant wait to finish the game after I play some others! ;D
Love the creative design in this game! The gameplay is very smooth and satisfying. Collecting coins and bones is fun and challenging. I think more story elements would have been sweet. Overall nice job!
THE GAME IS FINISHED!?!!?!?
Probably some bugs I’m missing, but it’s in it’s final state. I added one final feature which is lopping off branches to add further tree customization. (Tip: lopped branches wont grow back)
I am planning to release tomorrow I think around 12p EST :)
Have a great rest of jam!
Hey guys, thought you might like to hear the music I’ve added to the game. I composed it at 60 bpm to coincide with the in-game clock tied to realtime seconds. I also added a little sound effect when trimming leaves. Music can be turned on/off with Z button.
Also, I’ll be releasing as a beta with the goal of finishing all the features post-jam.
Lmk what you think!
Update: You can now perform safe and legal tree abortions in game! Decoupled the growth algorithm from time of day to grow independently, so your tree will begin to regrow 2 days after a trunk chop.
Hey guys, so I went ahead and just fixed the screen to 64x64 (removing the border). Also had to add a toolbar bc it wasn’t actually square when I designed [everything] so I guess there will be tools.
Plant tools. Plants AS tools? Maybe.
Hello peeps! My game I’m working on for this jam is called Bit Bonsai and it’s an idle game developed in PICO-8. It will be playable as a webgame on Itch and also a standalone app for Mac/Windows that you can run idle for days at a time.
The concept is growing and trimming a bonsai. At time of this post, I am working on developing the growth algorithm and trimming feature. Things I’ve decided to wait till later, and even possibly after the jam ends, include watering and feeding your tree, but I’d like to have many options for players to trim their bonsai to their liking.
I typically like to get player feedback during development, but to keep some of the game a secret I will be posting screenshots. Lmk what you think!
Have a great jam everyone!
