neat

Hahaha "Number of tricks: 1 (meh)" This is awesome!! Love the look and feel of the game. How you slide backwards if you don't have enough speed and how you can jump around or over things is really fun!

you can do better ;)

And thanks!

The styling of this is amazing! The sounds, the controls, and obviously the visuals. I love it.

freds72 keep up your good work! i have no idea if you make these pico-8 games anymore, but i love the ones you have! i would love it if you made more!

Thanks! I do keep making games. I have a day job so time for gamedev is limited. I am posting work in progress on Tweeter.

cool. I do not have any social media (I’m not allowed XD) but I’m wondering, what’s the next project you are working on?

idk i love the psudo-3D look with the pico8 games. I made my raspberry pie 3 into a handheld emulator console and I would love to figure out if I can stick pico 8 games onto it. THE QUEST FOR KNOwLEDGE BEGINS

You can download the game rpi binaries and off you go!

Very nice, but aren't the skis a bit wrong? If I was to turn to the right, I would put my left ski in front, not the right? And to the left side I would put the right ski in front.... Or is it too long ago I went skiing? :)

gives a better sense of ‘slope’ imho - I’ll check (at ski resort atm!!)

I instinctively reacted "this is wrong!", so careful when you're skiing now! :)

Great Game! Fun! :D 

Really cool game, I especially like that your rewarded points for going backwards. it makes it feel like your getting points for thinking outside the box.

try some more :]

what a cool concept, I really enjoyed it. 

This was lots of fun, Thank you :)

I'm digging the music!

Nice watch! make sure to try out the new version with more rewards for dangerous skiing ;)

Love the art style of this game! Had fun playing it.

This is a really fun game, i'd love to see what else you could make with the 3d terrain generation. maybe a flight sim?

(1 edit)

Thanks! Not so complex terrain wise - but you can play Tiny Sim, the most advanced flight sim on pico!

Looks great! Needs mobile support. 

you mean without the d-pad on screen?

No, just make it so it supports mobile. Or remove the d pad and replace it with a joystick and button.

I don't know how you guys pull this kind of stuff off, it's awesome though

(-1)

Great Game !! Thanks

(-1)

It look good 

(-1)

Definitely your most fun game so far.

I was thinking, sure, I'll try this out. Didn't look too interesting in a technical sense.

Then I saw the PICO-8 startup and was blown away by the fact this game can fit within a png. Absolutely crazy, awesome work. Keep it up!

(-1)

Thanks - behond the png gimmick, it means that everything is done by my code (or functions shared by the community), like 3d rasterization!

(-1)

was it hard to code?

(1 edit) (-1)

No but only thanks to the previous games I made - it took something like 2 months to do (my shortest dev time!).

See the BBS link for some screens of the work in progress.

Actually the most difficult part was to make it fun and interesting to play.

(-1)

Very nice! Plays well and is very impressive from a technical standpoint.

Good game guy but how are you make the pixel 3D system?

(-1)

Have look at PICO-8: https://www.lexaloffle.com/pico-8.php
The game is developped on this platform, with a bit of math and ability to draw pixels, you can do that :)
