PICOMIN Demo

PICOMIN is a demake of Nintendo's action-strategy game Pikmin made for the PICO-8 fantasy console.


You are a spaceship captain stranded on a strange new planet. It is now your duty to repair your ship so you can return home- with the help of tiny creatures called "picomin." Under your guidance, picomin will conquer obstacles and retrieve the missing pieces of your ship's computer so it can navigate to your daughter's wedding.


GAMEPLAY & CONTROLS:


Too access mouse controls press P or RETURN to open the pause menu and select the "cursor" option


Z or LEFT CLICK: THROW

X or RIGHT CLICK: CALL BACK


The primary goal of PICOMIN is to retrieve all pieces of your ship by making efficient use of your plant-person army over the course of multiple in-game days. Each day is 3 minutes long.


Picomin will automatically attack or pick up nearby objects when they aren't following you. Besides computer pieces, most things picomin can pick up will increase the numbers of your army- including corpses of defeated enemies.


Picomin can also carry bridge pieces. Picomin will take a piece from the pile and add onto the bridge until it's finished. Bridges will allow you to cross water, opening up new locations to explore or just create shortcuts to make carrying things back to the ship faster.


An important part of exploration is reaching new landing spots. By running into flag poles across the map, you'll be able to land in different sections of the world at the start of each day. These landing spots will bring you closer to important collectibles, and you can still go back to previous areas to collect that one thing you may have missed!

Neato!

¯\_(ツ)_/¯ cant blame ya making my childhood game FREE

finally a pikmin fan game i thinked there never would be one

decent demo of a 2D pikmin fangame.
+cool new idea like landing site/checkpoint.
+gameplay fit to the original pikmin games

- The pikmin pathfinding is not super great, some get always stuck in a specific area.
-The 8-bit style despite doing the job are kinda unprecise.

Not gonna lie, after playing this game, this felt like it could have been an actual GBA version of Pikmin and in a good way! The play style felt the same with the actual game. If I had to recommend a suggestion, it would be to add another button for a map function to make it easier to know your way around the levels. All in all, I hope this becomes a full game!
