P.Craft is a crafting game made using Pico 8. You wake up on a deserted island, and you have to survive. Gather materials and build your tools. Explore the area and find a cave. Will you find a way to escape the island ?

Controls :
Button 1 (C/Z/N) : open inventory / cancel menu
Button 2 (V/X/M) : use equiped item / valid menu

Clic on the game to give it focus if buttons doesnt work.

Update : Deluxe edition with save system, a boss and a few new items to discover.

The game is heavily inspired by Notch's Ludum Dare entry "Minicraft" witch seemed a perfect idea for pico 8

Quick start if needed :

  • Start by punching one or two trees.
  • Avoid zombies (water is you friend)
  • Open your inventory and select the workbench
  • Place the workbench on the ground
  • Use the workbench to craft a wood haxe
  • Select the wood haxe in your inventory
  • Cut trees until you can craft a sword on the workbench
  • Search the island until you find a cave opening
  • You can pickup your workbench again to move it near the cave
  • Your goal now is to craft a boat
  • Try to find the mysterious and dangerous boss before leaving the island
  • Be carefull

I somehow accidentally turned the sound off and now I can't figure out how to turn it back on. What button did I press? I feel like I've hit everything on the keyboard to try to get it to turn back on. 

hello, it's probably ctrl+M to mute/unmute the sound

i enjoyed this game alot! I found it to be simple yet engaging. I thought id give my opinions on it, so here are my positive and negative thoughts.

Positive

- The boss fight was very fun! i liked the mechanics of it and i felt accomplished when i figured something out, like how standing on the rocks makes it so you aren't electrocuted. It was challenging but not frustratingly so, i nearly died about 3 times but i was able to beat it first try. (which is fine in a game like this, since if i had died i would've lost all my progress.)

-On that note, i see alot of people complaining about it in the comments but i quite like the 1 death hardcore thing. In a game like this where progression is so fast there is really no reason to respawn. Adds to the challenge. 

-Im not sure if this one is a postive or negative, because im not entirley sure on how i feel about it, but you cannot place any sort of block in this game. It did create a more unique expierence where you have to get creative, and i liked that. I ended up digging myself a little house into the rock, removing the sand around any openings so the zombies couldnt get in, and using workstations as walls. i quite liked my little home.

Negative

-My music didnt work! Im not sure if it was my end or the games (my sound did work in other games though) and i am playing the web version. The entire thing was silent so it really detracted from the expierence.

-I felt like i progressed far too fast in the mining. i went from stone to iron to gem in about 5 minutes, i didnt even need gold. I recommend adding 3 different levels to the mines that get harder, with the boss fight on the final floor. it doesnt have to be anything too crazy, but i think a floor dedicated to each ore with a unique type of enemy would be fun. and it would make it so you would have to use the tools until you are strong enough to progress.

-armor would be nice too, to add to that difficulty and give you something to work towards.

tips

-in order to make a farm, you have to use a scythe on the green grass to get seeds, and then use a wooden shovel to prepare the sand. Then you just press Z to plant the seeds. Use the scythe again to harvest them

-To get the tailsman make a map and go to the dots scattered around in the overworld. when you did in those spots you get a chest with a tailsman piece inside. get 4 to complete the tailsman. if you cannot dig try removing any grass with the scythe.

-the tailsman stuns the Eel!

anyway, this was a cool game! keep up the good work.

bruh i had no idea what was going on but i managed to get to a big snake and after i got it to like half health i died lol

Is there a way to download the music?

hi! the main 3 music can be found on my soundcloud https://soundcloud.com/antoine-zanuttini/sets/stranded-islepcraft-ost
and there is lots of online tools if you want to download them from there

have a nice day

Thx!

This is super cool! I do have a few suggestions:

1: Add an option to leave when you get the boat so that you can keep exploring.

2: Add bridges to travel easier

3: Add bows and arrows

4: Skeletons with bows that sometimes drop

5: Types of potions

6: Armor (stone, iron, gem, etc)

7: Large inventory limit

8: Section in your inventory just for tools

9: Make some way to throw items to get rid of them (like your old wooden tools)

10: Make items last for longer

11: I don't know if this is possible, but could you add hotkeys for items? (Z + up, Z + right, etc)

12: Different modes (creative, normal, respawning)

13: Different table/bench to make gem tools/armor (like a forge or something)

14: More buried treasure and tailsmans

15: Different types of walls and doors to make a base (wooden wall, wooden door, stone wall, stone door, iron wall, iron door, etc)

Ok, it might have been more than a few suggestions, but I think that these changes would make the game more fun, while not exactly copying Minecraft.

I played this game during school a while ago, great game for how short it is.

how do i get to the cave? my island doesn't have one

nevermind i found it lol

(1 edit)

Just suggesting, re-upload the web version to get the newer kind of web-launcher, and that supports mobile with touch buttons. I cannot play, as much as I want to

(1 edit)

i filled the entire mine with sand and removed all the stone and ores. if you try to place sand outside of the area i placed sand, the sand just disappears without actually placing any sand

Madman

how do you move

What does the talisman do??

When you enter the final boss room, it says something about the talisman giving you power. It probably means you do more damage or something like that.

This game was awesome

what does the pickup tool do

sorry for responding to this incredibly late, but it lets you pickup things that you place down

STRANDED ISLE YESSS

this game is awesome man.

no its mineccraft 69

good game but items fly so far and despawn so quickly

This is actualy a very good game. simpel mechanics that provide a lot of fun. good job. you could easly iterate over it and make an full game out of it.

uhh, i think i just got into another guys game, i just started but had gem sword and pick and boat

(+3)

Awesome game, though I wish that there was some way to respawn. I also wish that I was able to build some type of shelter, too, so that I am not at constant risk of being attacked by zombies.

This is cool you made a survival game, love it

Really satisfying to win ! At first I didn't know this game could be won, but thanks to the comments I knew I had to escape the island with a boat

超好玩,希望改一下控制按钮

yup

(3 edits) (+2)

ok uhhh yeah when i die it just resets all my progress and that sucks actually. I would love this game if it has a "respawn feature". and yeah i found a bug that when you have 2 chests then you try to carry the other chest, the other, other chest will disappear.

btw it's a cool game it really has that "minicraft" theme.

bro its hardcore minecraft there is no respawn

its ok game ^^

(+4)

Very fun until you die, especially when you have a ton of progress. You should add a "reload save" option when you die.

so are you supposed to get attacked and flee the island cuz thats what i did

(+11)

cool game, items despawn too quickly

(1 edit)

i dont know how to place my workbench

Go into your inventory, select it, and place it on the ground.

(1 edit) (+3)

you should add more stuff into the game like walls, and multiplayer mode it would be more fun.

it's a super fun game i would definitely recommend 

and please continue to update this fun game
