As a long-overdue follow-up to my first PICO-8 game recommendation, I want to recommend one of the most impressive games ever to be made for the platform: Paul Nicholas' remake of the classic RTS game Dune II (which famously started the RTS craze in the ’90s). It is called UnDUNE II and it’s a so-called multi-cart game, meaning it utilises several cartridges that are daisy-chained and together make up the whole program. When you start playing, you’ll quickly figure out why this is needed. It is amazing that Paul managed to fit a full RTS game into PICO-8’s stringent limitations, even with this trick.
