Note that this version does not yet address performance with Playdate hardware.
(Work continues on performance with Playdate hardware.)

@SOBA_P Do you have a pdx version that can be sideloaded onto the playdate?

I think it is possible to sideload with shared pdx, although I think playdate hardwaer will have a slight performance loss.

@SOBA_P Im getting this error when attempting a sideload on the play.date site:
“Could not find a top-level .pdx file.“

I was able to make a PDX version by extracting the .json file (it's zipped inside the SUKIMA_en.pdx folder), uploading it to Pulp, and exporting it as a PDX. This is my first time posting on here, so I'm trying to attach it, but don't know if it'll work!

Looks like as a newbie I can't add attachments yet. Here it is in Google Drive, if I can post links!

Thanks! That one uploaded. Now to see if it works on console when I get home :grin:

@SOBA_P I’m excited to try this out!

It's working fine for me! No notable performance issues or anything; really cool to see what people can do with Pulp!

Is there any chance you will add the game to itch.io at some point? I know a lot of people are finding new playdate games that way.

I'll add it to itch.io soon!

This game is so cool, and I am absolutely horrible at it. :rofl:

But definitely need more Playdate games like this!

Great game!!! This is definitely my favorite Pulp game so far. I just finished the second cave; I love the boss fights and the music!

Thanks for playing!
I'm also glad you liked the music!

Hey!
Your game is amazing.

I'm familiar with Hydlide, Ys and Xak and I really loved it.

Short, compact and packed with satisfaction.
The mechanics are simple but well designed.
I should play again soon to get all trophies!

I hope you'll put it out on itch.io so that more people will find it. I've tried many playdate games and yours is my favourite as I'm a fan of the genre.

I hope you'll do more, if not thanks for SUKIMA!
