I’ve been really getting into programming for the not-real console PICO-8 this week, obviously working on Advanced Lawnmower Simul8or (do you see what I did there?), and while looking up other games for hints on stuff I came across this fantastic little game – Duck Duck on the Loose.
Join Duck Duck as he looks for ducklings hidden across the really well realised 3D top-down map, quacking and leaving footprints as he goes. Have bizarre conversations with the characters he comes across, and try to guide all the missing babies home.
I haven’t a clue how I’d even start making a game like this, not least with the purposefully limited environment the PICO-8 provides, so I’ll have to make do with grass cutting for now.
