This looks really cool and I can't wait to try it.

Try asking Lexaloffle then ;) But make sure you give feedback, alpha testing is crucial!

I can wait unless he actively wants alpha testers.

How would I contact him for an alpha version? I can test on a mac and nspire (linux :) )

I think you could do it via Twitter at https://twitter.com/lexaloffle but Twitter lacks any private message notifications if I recall correctly. Maybe he has a website?

Nope, I usually get correctly my PM in order and with notifications.

DJ Omnimaga

Ah strange, I never got them. On top of that, my old PMs got deleted >.<

Also I just checked Voxatron and it really looks cool O.O

Now if only we could get some of those old school developers interested in calculator-oriented forums to showcase their products, since people on calc forums are fans of old-school stuff, after all :P (especially CW which has a very large retro gaming userbase).

I wonder if PICO-8 itself could do voxels? I know that the TI-89 can do it at very decent frame rate even though it runs at 12 MHz, but that was in pure ASM or C.

Snektron

You mean like 3d? won't that be very low res and not playable at all?

Duke "Tape" Eiyeron

VOxels? Don't you have Voxatron for this? After all, voxels in the 89 is usually demoscene tricsk. THey won't be as flexible as you would need to uise them in a game. And it'll probably run quite slowly, but that's to test.

Why not? Why not poking at them with one or two sticks then?

One of the demos is a 2.5D (like DOOM) ray tracer that runs surprisingly quickly.
