Tiny Gamelib

Dec 2, 2023

This mini project was about creating the tiniest library I could use for small game jams. Very lightweight, simple, for pixelart (palette-based) style.

Still barebones, many helpers and good stuff can be added.. but it can be used for tiny and quick minigames and experiments with a very low learning curve.

Farmer Pepe

The first time I used the library was for the GMTK Game Jam 2023, in which I remade the first level of Mario Bros with a twist. The theme was "Roles Reversed", and the idea was to make the player help the enemies (by feeding them), not kill them.

You can play Farmer Pepe at itch.io.


The game got desqualified for copyright infridgement (surprise!). The fact is that I always thought of repainting all the sprites before submitting, but at some point getting close to the deadline I had to choose between delivering a playable game with full gameplay that would probably be desqualified or a broken game with original sprites.. and I chose the former ¯\_(ツ)_/¯.
