Ad Astra

A demo by Ate Bit for the Pico-8 virtual console. ( http://www.lexaloffle.com/pico-8.php )

Release date : 13/08/2016

Code & music : 4mat
Graphics : ilkke

Link is to the on-line version. (where you can also download the cart image) Or you can save the screenshot, rename it to .p8.png and load that straight into pico-8 as well.

A proper zip version from the atebit.org site will follow.


Leave audio enabled, demo uses the STAT variables to maintain timing and scenes won't continue otherwise.

Due to the way I merged some _update and _draw code together the demo may go out of sync if you don't have the window focused. This may
only affect watching it in pico-8 rather than the web version however.

Add infinitum!! :D

Really great pico-8 tune and really nice effects and tiles graphics all around :)

magic: No remote entries. Tbh I feel like just releasing prods at parties isn't very healthy for the scene in general, my last two were out of party as well. I mean, we used to make stuff all year round and things didn't have to be an 'event' , which puts way more pressure on things being a huge epic production and people's reactions to it. I applaud guys like TMR for releasing new stuff when they feel like it, that's way more in the spirit for me.

awesome prod by two of my fave guys ♥

this is one of the best demo on PICO-8 (admin please add a PICO-8 section FFS) and the music is simply the best one ever made on this platform :D

Pico-8's No Man's Sky? ;)

I'm a bit unclear about what is technically achievable on the platform but this is really enjoyable. Art and music are top notch and the effects are very nicely directed.

Great stuff! That clearly took some doing.

Wow, this must be the best pico-8 demo yet!
Everything is so smooth. I remember people trying to make 3d on pico-8 and not being as smooth. And this with stuff running in the background and foreground. I am gonna check the code.

Totally enjoyed this, reminds me of the good old Amiga days in the early 90s which is never a bad thing. :) Nice effects and super catchy music.

Not a big fan of virtual platforms but I _am_ a fan of 4mat & Ilkke and there's no denying this is cool stuff!

I really don’t like the music, but woah, the overall is pretty great! I especially like the cube-with-balls and the light turning around. :)
