(another PICO-8 game from me)


Menu: Z to start game.

Game: UP/DOWN to move the bus


Another rapidly-completed dodging game, this time for the Desert Bus Game Jam! Keep that bus away from the weird mythical creatures!


Excited to finally finish something for this jam after several years wanting to.

PlatformsWindows, macOS, Linux, HTML5
Made withPICO-8

Install instructions

The game should work great in the browser whether downloaded or not! Download the ZIP and put both files in the same folder, then double-click on 'desertmyths.html'. It should open like a normal webpage.

The binaries just need to be downloaded and unzipped on the correct kind of computer - they should work from the unzipped folder with no extra messing. I'm just using the built-in PICO-8 binary export, but please let me know if something is weird with them. It is a new enough feature.

If you have PICO-8 and want to check out the game's code/etc. or just play it in the 'real thing', download either desertmyths.p8 or desertmyths.p8.png to your pico-8/carts directory, then load from within the game with 'load desertmyths'.
