Im have newer heard about that. Howover the only issue with Pico-8, there seens not been impose a CPU usage limit. So you can do really a lots of 32kbit and im would compare those intros from demoscene :-). The resolution resemble something The Beagle Jam game im did last year in 64x64 pixels format. So pretty sure its fun to work with small resolutions and limits like those and that nice road demo.

Howover how well is this to being in a cabinet? hehe.

I would love to code on one. Though, perhaps would find the Fairchild more fulfilling, but this certainly looks wonderful.

hey, im did a Fairchild look a like game.... Catch Out:
http://greatflash.co.uk/index.php?action=post;topic=1403.0;num_replies=2

its was designed too extractly look like that (howovoer im used my own colors, but you can edit to look like the original colors and using chunky mode).

Could been fun too see that game extracly on that machine. Also Catch Out could been nice to seen in this fantasy console as well. Should been possible.

Not sure what happens with link. It's should linked to my homepage. It's for ios and Android:
http://blog.spacefractal.com/mobile-apps/catch-out/

And... could been fun to see the game running on such of machine, even its might have been a little slower pace.

Yes its a cool video.
