Letter from a White Fox is an indie adventure game being made using the Pico 8 engine, with a setting based in Japanese folklore. Found via this Canvas post by Giulia Lamperti, who is doing the art for the game.
I’m a huge fun of the game-themed book bundles that Simon Carless curates for StoryBundle — I’ve happily bought every single one of them, even though I still have plenty to read. A new one came out this past week, and I’d say it’s even extra special as it’s themed around my friend Joseph White‘s Pico-8 fantasy console. On top of including the full Pico-8 development software and the 4 issues released so far of the excellent Pico-8 Zine, it’s also a fine selection of great game-related reads — I’m currently reading the Super Mario Bros. 3 book from Boss Fight Books (one of my favorite imprints), while I’m actually playing the game again on my NES Classic Edition. Make sure to grab the bundle before it expires.
Do you have a thing for pixel art? If so, then boy do I have the exhibition for you. “Pixel Art Park 3” looks to be a fantastic celebration of all things prettily pixelized, and it’s taking place at the always interesting 3331 Arts Chiyoda space (September 9, 2016). Fans of Lexaloffle‘s PICO-8 fantasy console should also note that Joseph will be taking part, showcasing PICO-8 on his trusty 7″ TV.
