Lower resolution, but same ratio ?

What about using a smaller resolution with the same ratio ? I would like to use pico-8, but the max resolution is 128x128. I can clip to 128x115 to keep the same ratio as the original game boy.

Thanks !

Bit out of luck with pico-8, because the GB resolution (160x144) would actually scale to 128x115.2.

Although if you ask me, a four-color pico game is still in the spirit of the jam, even at 128x128. Because who needs to follow rules? XD

That sounds ok to me. You're not going over the limitations or trying to exploit the rules or anything, and it's not like it's an unfair advantage

Ok thanks !
