A darker falling duck... (game)

I’ve been playing around with lighting effects in Arcade and created a little demo program featuring our fearless duck protagonist in a deep-dark cave. Got the inspiration from https://hackernoon.com/pico-8-lighting-part-1-thin-dark-line-8ea15d21fed7

How? Please teach me!

@aberrantcurse what’s your question? I’m happy to write up an explanation!

i’d like to know how you did the lighting effects. when i copy and paste into my game it doesn’t work

Are you coding in Blocks or JavaScript?

If you’re looking to see how it’s implemented, you should check out this blog post which does a better job of explaining the approach than I can.

If you just want to use the effect, I’ve made an extension for you. You can grab it from here:

And here is a test game that uses it:

Press A to turn off the lights and B to turn the lights back on.
