I..don't know how this works

Because even zep gets hungry for a byte to eat from time() to time().

Finding a free alternative isn't impossible.

Michael55, Pico-8 isn't free but God Bless ZEP for providing such a powerful engine in any case.

I will tell you right now, Pico-8 is one of the best purchases I have ever made or likely ever will make in this lifetime.

Totally worth the money.

What do you get ?

  • Write code in highly easy-to-understand language.

  • Compile to EXE, Macintosh, HTML, JS, Unix.

  • HUNDREDS of free games written by others available via a menu called S - navigate, search, mark favorites, etc.

  • Onboard sprite, map, sound, and music editor.

  • A learning experience you will never get anywhere else. You program in PICO and it will definitely expand your brain, knowledge, and problem-solving ability.

  • Unlimited upgrades by ZEP.

Going to send you HERE to get you started:

I think the question is not so much why isn't Pico-8 free but why is it so darned good and affordable.

Compare with other languages if you like, commercial or free. I have - and found myself always coming back here.
