I have recently discovered Pico8, it is a cool little OS that is based around a 128×128 screen and LUA coding. I played some games and thought it would be cool if I could create an adventure game for it. After reading forum posts and the manual it turns out the licensing is a bit crooked; seems like the owner of the Pico8 engine can always claim your game idea. Besides legal issues there is also a limitation on the amount of code you can use to write a game: the cartridges can be 32k at max. Programming short functional code can be quite difficult! Anyhow, you can play games for free on the website without buying the Pico8 engine, I think I’ll leave it at that.
