Development

8 Legs to Love is the first game I ever felt I "completed" and also my first PICO-8 game. I worked on it in my free time over six months and released it on itch.io.

The game was originally intended to be a pseudo dating game, hence the title. Between levels, you'd be approached by a suitor and have the choice of chatting with them or eating them. I had to drop it because it couldn't all fit in one PICO-8 cart, but the name remains!
