An introduction to the fun and easy-to-use game-making tool PICO-8, followed by an afternoon jam.

PICO-8 Workshop + Mini Game Jam

Sunday, September 20, 2015
1:00pm - 5:00pm

Bento Miso

In this workshop participants will be introduced to mini game-making tool PICO-8 and will be learning how to use its built-in tools to make graphics, levels, sound effects, and music for games! We will also be running over the basics of Lua scripting in this quick 1hr (ish) workshop.

After the workshop, participants will take part in a 3hr mini-jam using PICO-8 to make their own games!

Workshop/game jam participants will receive a copy of PICO-8 (valued at $14.99 USD) Thanks to Joseph White of Lexaloffle Games for the support!

About PICO-8

PICO-8 is a fantasy console for making, sharing and playing tiny games and other computer programs. When you turn it on, the machine greets you with a shell for typing in Lua commands and provides simple built-in tools for creating your own cartridges… The harsh limitations of PICO-8 are carefully chosen to be fun to work with, encourage small but expressive designs and hopefully to give PICO-8 cartridges their own particular look and feel.
