Katamari Christmassy

A PICO8+Xmas homage to the Katamari series by Namco by Mathieu @p01 Henri and Matt @gasmanic Westcott for the PICO8 Advent Calendar 2019

The King of All Cosmos was completely naughty. The stars are all gone and you, the 5cm Prince of All Cosmos, must fix this mess.

How to play

Walk forward with ⬆️, steer with ⬅️ and ➡️
Roll things up with your Katamari ball to build the biggest clump.

The King will make a star with it. If it is big enough.

Game modes

Switch between Story and Arcade mode in the Pause menu.

Rebuild the Christmas constellation in Story mode to make the King of All Cosmos proud.

Have fun in Arcade mode.

Accessibility and photo sensitivity

Some colors flicker at 60fps to make parts of the UI transparent or brighter. Unfortunately this can be quite disturbing for photo sensitive people.

The color flicker can be toggled in the Pause menu.


Code + Visuals: Mathieu @p01 Henri
Musics: Matt @gasmanic Westcott

Cute, reminds me of the "Rolling With Katamari" 2D mobile game. Now nobody tell Namco about this. :)
