This is my first Pico-8 cartridge, hope you enjoy it! Took me approximately 24 hours effective time to make.

Title screen artwork was created by @jellocube (Matthew Shelley), much appreciated!

Picopolis is a SimCity demake / idle game in which you place roads, residental/industrial/commercial zoning, schools, police departments, hospitals, and various other things. The city will grow depending on housing, jobs, pollution, and crime ratings, and the bigger it gets the more money you make.

Cheers!

Changes in 1.1:

  • Fixed placing large buildings outside of the map
  • Added "Established" date to the victory statue, kind of like a highscore
  • Made large commercial zones develop just a tiny bit faster
  • Added "jeb_" intro ;)
