Eclipse - TIC-80 256 bytes


A port of a Processing sketch algorithm although totally different result than the sketch. Mainly wanted to do something less abstract than previous releases.

This one begun a year before the party release, i was not satisfied of the initial result so it was in a frozen state for about a year until a day i was bored and found some ways to improve it.

The Processing sketch was a spaceship but the image was a bit bland on TIC-80 so adapted the algorithm to draw mountains instead and struggled a bit to have a good composition.

A combination of ellipse / circle / pix calls. Lua code packed with tic-tool.

earlier 2022 version; trying wider stars; that was too much

initial 2021 version, had some filler text taken from a Darkthrone album name

two days after and a text change taken from a song by Immortal band (the struggle is real !)

early 2022 version; struggling a bit on composition i guess :)

tad better by changing background mountains angle; added more stuff later on so it was a bit less boring
