Smash the Alarm

It's been a long time Weekly Beats!

Glad to be back. I quite half through 2016 after my mother was diagnosed with terminal cancer. After a year off - and time to heal - I'm back at it again.

Recently my friend got me into Pico8 - a "fantasy 8bit console* that allows you code an entire game with graphics, sound, and music all within the same environment.

This is my first attempt at writing music in Pico-8. Look forward to doing more! The graphics in the background are just Deflemask - but all sounds here are produced by Pico-8.

Welcome back! Coding looks pretty difficult, good job.

I want to get into pico-8, but I just can't get my head wrapped around trackers. Nice work.

How did I miss this?  This track is epic!  Definitely wish I could understand trackers/esp. Deflemask.

Sorry about your mother - I hope you have found some recovery.

I miss you here on WB!
