I’ve known fantasy consoles existed, but just today I finally got very interested in them (because thanks to Pokitto and Arduboy I am seeing the big potential in porting, multiplatform development, art reusing etc.). I’d like to ask you guys what are some of the best fantasy consoles? Your personal favorites? I’m personally only interested in free and open source ones, with a community that mostly shares the games in the same way. But feel free to talk even about proprietary ones if that’s your thing, I’ll like to hear that too.
I know Pico-8 is probably the most popular one, but for the above mentioned reason not an option for me.
Then I’ve found TIC-80 that should be under MIT and as a huge fan of 3D the existing games and demos really caught my attention The problem seems to be the games are mostly only shared as binaries.
There are lists of fantasy consoles but I’m getting lost in them, they’re too long.
Any tips for me? (Other than “get over it and come to Pico-8” )
C/C++ would be great as I would be able to test out my raycasting library on a new platform, which is always good for catching bugs. But not necessary.
Thanks for any advice
