I made my game Need For Seed: Undergrowth in/for the PICO-8 fantasy console. The PICO-8 constantly records the last few seconds and lets you save a GIF at any time, so I saved a GIF whenever I completed a new feature. Here’s 14 GIFs showing the ‘growth’ of my game from just the ‘seed’ of an idea:

01 - no cls  #1 – Testing vine rendering by not clearing the screen

02 - 360 degree movement  #2 – 360 degree movement

03 - health, flowers  #3 – Health, flowers

04 - multiple vines, random position  #4 – Multiple vines, random start positions

05 - fertilizer, bee  #5 – ‘Fertilizer’, bee phase

06 - lawnmower  #6 – Lawnmower

07 - particle effects  #7 – Flower particle effects

08 - vertical mower + pfx  #8 – More particles, vertical lawnmower

09 - title screen  #9 – Title screen

10 - stats, game over  #10 – Stats, game over screen

11 - puns  #11 – The all-important puns

12 - berries, small flowers  #12 – Berries and small flowers

Super happy with how the game turned out, got a lot more done than I thought I would!
