Finally fixed the map issue from changes in Pico8 and fixed the 10 minute game freeze bug.
Some dialog stuff and fixed a bunch of bugs, cabins now work and there are caves you can rest in.

How to survive your first day:

  • When you wash up you're nearly dead, hungry, tired, and exhausted.
  • Your health will drop if any statuses (hungry,tired,exhausted,cold) are in the red.
  • Resting while your statuses are ok will restore health
  • Quickly drink some water from your flask. (x -> items -> flask -> drink)
  • Find some fruit/berries and pick them then eat them.
  • Salvage wood from your boat, and chop down another tree and get the logs
  • Build a shelter, eat, drink and rest, stay warm
  • After this, focus on finding freshwater (it has white sparkles) so you can drink and fill your flask
  • Then try and find some stone and build a cabin which will replenish your stamina fully
  • Build bridges to new areas


  • Day night cycle
  • Weather
  • Temperature (it's colder at night and when it's raining, stay warm in your shelter/cottage)
  • Simple menu system
  • Procedurally generated world
  • Bridge building
  • Building wells that fill with water when it rains
  • Plants grows overnight while you're resting
  • In progress
    • Farms and farming


  • Fishing minigame
  • Wild animals and fences to keep safe
  • Disallow some stuff at night to incentivise you to work during the day

I suspect code size optimisation will be quite critical =\
