Pico Factory — Post Compo Ver 1.3

It adds chickens and egg sandwiches, and a bunch of other fixes. Play the Compo version!


The reaction to my little game was much better than I anticipated! Thank you all for your nice comments.

In this new version, I have fixed some of the most common complaints:

  • Controls: Now the X button opens a menu which lets you choose the item to place. You can also overwrite items without using the erase tool if you want to.
  • Balance: No more Bread Machine > All :-) Also, the output machine’s cost increase with each new machine in the world. Use the Conveyor belts!
  • New items: Chickens and Eggs machines
  • Also: A bunch of small fixes and improvements.

I hope you enjoy it! I’ll try to keep working on this game a little bit every weekend until I clear through my TODO list. Suggestions regarding the balance are highly appreciated. And as always, if you got a high score, send me the screenshot!

So I added two more buildings to my game, some sound effects, and I’m calling it in for this LD.

I tried making some music, but I suck at it. The game is already noisy enough with the factory’s sound effects.

You can play the newest version at

The only thing that worries me is that Game submission is not working, and the LD deadline tomorrow is just when I am waking up and rushing for work :-(

First Version is out!

This time, I’m trying out PICO8, a micro fantasy console.

For “one room”, the idea I’m coming up with is a “Factorio” clone.

Probably will limit it by time, and challenge the player to see how much money he can make in X minutes.

Interface will be a problem.

First day at the museum and the boss is sick. Guess you’ll have to improvise!
