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
Love the aesthetics of your game. Really cool use of the palette.
@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
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.
