The BBS fails silently when I attempt to attach an image whose filename contains spaces. The upload appears to be successful, but it doesn't appear in the list of available images.

I remember this bug from the previous version of the BBS, so it's not new.

It appears that I have to sign in to the BBS on a daily basis. This does not appear to be intentional, and it's certainly annoying. I believe in the previous version of the BBS we had a one month sign-in expiration.

My cookies seem to be in reasonable shape for expiration dates:

PHPSESSID: when browsing session ends
pass: one month
user: one month

lexaloffle.com without the www also sets a cookie, __cfduid, but this doesn't seem related. I have tried clearing and recreating all of these cookies, with no change of behavior.

When playing a game in the web player, if I hold the z key ("o" button), I get the macOS diacritic editor. This interrupts play. I don't recall seeing this prior to the BBS/player update.

Ludum Dare 43 Game Jam submission!
A short RTS-style game made in PICO-8, where your goal is to make robots to defeat a big alien monster.

The catch? You have to kill small, cute robots to do it!

Tips: -You need to make a total of 6 Big Robots to win. -Sometimes, robots will stop moving while gathering resources. If this happens, you’ll have to kill them. (I’d like to pretend this is a feature but it’s just a glitch i didnt have time to fix, oops)


Open the menu and navigate to robots to select them. After selecting them, hit “send” to send them to go gather resources. Eventually they will return but unable to work any more.

Some of you may remember me bringing this idea up previously, and the concept was met with a lot of positivity but didn't actually go anywhere. But, as the end of the year is approaching, I thought it would be a fitting time to actually try to make it happen!

As such, allow me to introduce the P8 Awards!

Cart [#jusiv_p8awards_v02-0#] | 2018-12-03 | License: CC4-BY-NC-SA | Embed

(Use left and right to view different awards.)

These are an (unofficial) set of awards, similar to the Steam Awards, designed to celebrate PICO-8 carts.
The community will nominate carts over the course of December, and then vote on them over the course of January.



#1. "Has to be Nano" Award
This goes to a cart that defies what you though PICO-8 could do.

#2. "Underrated" Award
This goes to a cart that deserves waaay more stars than it has.

#3. "Out of the Box" Award
This goes to a cart that stands out for how unique it is.

#4. "Ephemeral" Award
This goes to a cart that's brief but nevertheless captivating.

#5. "Vortex" Award
This goes to a cart that keeps pulling you back to it again and again.

#6. "Beep Boop Banger" Award
This goes to a cart that with outstanding music.

#7. "Novella" Award
This goes to a cart that tells an exceptional story.

#8. "Sparkling" Award
This goes to a cart that positively shines with polish.



Cart nominations will end at 11:59PM Eastern Time on December 31, 2018.

  • 1 cart nomination per award per person.
  • You may nominate a cart for multiple awards.
  • Carts can be of ANY age!

If this becomes an annual thing, then nominations would normally only be open to carts released in that year. But since this is the first time this has been tried, for this round ANY cart will be allowed, no matter how old!

Cart voting will end at 11:59PM Eastern Time on January 31, 2019.
Carts won't be available for voting until the nominations are finished.

A turn-less, world-less RPG made in 48 hours.

  • Z/X/C: Advance/Select
  • Left/Right: Change Selected Character
  • Up/Down: Change Selected Action

The abilities aren't well explained beyond their names in-game, so here's a reference:

  • STRIKE: Deal elemental damage to the opponent.
  • SPECIAL: Each character has a completely different Special ability.
    > Powderhound doubles the foe's remaining cooldown time.
    > Rogue deals high non-elemental damage.
    > Clover heals themselves.
  • BOLSTER: Heal the other two characters.

Each character, every enemy, and most attacks have an elemental attribute.
These are as follows: Frost (Blue), Hate (Red), and Zeal (Green)
Frost deals double damage to Hate, Hate deals double damage to Zeal, and Zeal deals double damage to Frost. (It's basically just Water/Fire/Grass.)


  • All actions have a cooldown, during which the user cannot act again.
  • When a character falls, they can be revived by Bolstering them. They will revive with a cooldown dependent on how far below 0 their HP had fallen.
  • If all characters are defeated, the player must reset the cartridge to try again.
  • Some enemies can create elemental shields, which protect them from all damage. They must be hit with a Strike of the attribute which is effective against theirs to be removed.

This is a light linear RPG which consists entirely of dialogue and combat. There are 16 battles in total.

I made this by myself in 48 hours for the B-Term 2018 Game Jam at WPI. I didn't have time to make any audio for it, and some things could use more explanation and polish, but otherwise it is basically complete.

The jam theme was to use three name generators and make a game inspired by the results (one for finding your Werewolf name, one for finding your Skier/Snowboarder name, and one for finding your Leprechaun name). I wound up with Rogue Hound, Powderhound Snowscombe, and Clover McWoozy (respectively). These ended up becoming the names of the three characters and informed their personalities, attributes, and abilities.

I might go through and try to expand or improve this later somehow but we'll see.

The gods are angry. The mountain has awoken. You are a human sacrifice, and your mission is to travel to the mountain and throw yourself into its volcanic crater. Success will mean your death, but if you fail, your tribe is surely doomed...

Created in 48 hours for Ludum Dare 43.

The BBS' player seems a little unstable since the update, some carts are hanging in both Firefox (63.0.3 / 64bit) & Chrome (70.0.3538.110, 64 bit) for me at least.

Here's a couple of examples:

https://www.lexaloffle.com/bbs/?tid=32380 - posted after the update (and electricgryphon also is having the same issue)
https://www.lexaloffle.com/bbs/?pid=16351 - old cart that used to run ok

These both work fine in the PC application.

I'm not sure it's directly related to high CPU use - for example, if I move the camera inside the models in this cart to force > 100% cpu, I don't get hangs: https://www.lexaloffle.com/bbs/?pid=46687

It’s your big break as an energy mule, but be careful, the world’s ending.


Use the arrow keys to move. Break open energy crates to attach their contents to your ship, and transport the energy balls to the green markers. The further you transport an energy ball the more you'll be paid.

You’re the Spirit of the stones and have to collect (and sacrifice) them.

Will you find the path ?
Could you resolve the gods challenge?
Is 1min16 is enough for you to succeed ?

This my compo for LD-43 : 'Sacrifices must be made'

So I've been developing in PICO-8 for a little bit now, but I've just now been trying to download it on my Windows 10 PC. I'm having a problem though. I keep running the installer and everything looks fine, but then when I run the program it deletes the executable file.
Any ideas?

to spurn the titan god
sacrifices must be made
This is a small arcade game made for Ludum Dare 43.

How to play


complete the desired sacrifices as they appear by taking bread, coin, and pig from the bottom alters
and placing them on the top alters. Make sure your offerings are in the correct order, or they don’t
count. Don’t let your life hit zero or your band of zealots may become the sacrifice!


[left] [right]: move the zealots
[X]: pick up a new sacrifice AND pass the items down the line
[C] (pico-8 "O" button): pass the items down the line (without picking up a new one)


  • 0: initial release
  • 1: remade title screen

while exploring an internet hole the other day i began reading about chromadepth glasses. It got me thinking about being able to get "pop out 3d" effect in pico8 and voxatron without needing to do any kind of Anaglyph effect by only using the colors at the proper "depths" as described below

their description:
"The ChromaDepth glasses create striking 3D images from normal 2D images by pulling forward the color red to the foreground and sorting the remaining colors according to their position in the rainbow. ROY G BIV! (Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue, Indigo, and Violet). The ChromaDepth process encourages fantastic 3D illusions without compromising the quality of the image when viewed without the glasses."

i can personally vouch that these work even with glasses because a few smoke shops ive been to sell them with giant fabric wall scrolls

Chromadepth Glasses if anyone is interested

i think crayola used these around 8 years ago
