Doing MSX1 stuff. Didn't realise I was supposed to load the address of the song before calling the init routine, so the player just played some garbage from the RAM.

Sounded good though, gonna have to play a bunch of binaries some day.

I unironically think this is awesome.

You don't get to experience this that many times in your life. That profound "holy shit, this exists?" moment where your conception of music, or any other artform, is shaken by a single powerful experience. What I see here is an unadulterated expression of just that.

Now you know. Enjoy.

So CM Punk made a comeback on the same weekend as Matt Current. Obviously not a coincidence.

I hear someone say their IT company has no clear separation between free time and work time and I think that's the last place on Earth I want to work at, because if you can't tell if something is free time or work time, it's always work time.

White Ale in Benin, a demo by Matt Current for the PICO-8. Perhaps a comeback demo? We'll see :)

Code, graphics and music by me. Placed third in the Wild compo at Revision 2019.




“CLUB ASM” by dekadence, the assembly summer 2019 invitation for iphone. 4th place in the wild compo at revision

watch it on your phone with the jumalauta collection:

Seems like I should have entered my demo as Jumalauta, since apparently that's somehow become a more respected name than Matt Current :)

It's silly to think like this, I know. But, now, I'm at Revision, and this time I'm The Guy Who Coded All Those Things. I've never been The Guy Who Coded All Those Things before.

And it does change the experience.

If I win the Wild compo at Revision, it's only because this incredible TIC-80 demo by petet and Sintel was entered at Battle of the Bits instead. Awesome work!

If you're thinking of starting your own Mastodon instance, it seems that is free

Rock for Metal and Techno-utopian Edict now fixed for PICO-8 v0.1.12! Which means they won't run correctly on earlier versions anymore, since they depend on time() for sync.

Fixes now live on the PICO-8 BBS, gonna get them on FTP sites and Pouet later.

Noticed this interesting bit in the PICO-8 v0.1.12 changelog:

Added: .wasm exporter (now default when exporting html)

Going to have to test if this means that my demos finally run reliably in browsers! :)

I will be appearing as a guest on next week's episode of Mystery Demoscene Theater 9000! Show airs on Wednesday, at 19:00 WEST / 21:00 EEST, on Twitch and YouTube, among other places.

I don't have a Twitter account and I almost certainly never will, but if I ever give in, it will be so I can create and post tweetcarts. Not only is browsing them a good source of inspiration, I also love the weird tricks you need to use to cram your code in 140 or 280 characters. I had no idea ?"" is a functional shorthand for print("")!

Chip-krautrock! Megadrive tune, intended for the oldskool music competition at Revision 2019. Unfortunately, the compo has a size limit of 32 kilobytes, and to my dismay, the ROM file exported by Deflemask was actually well over 100 kilobytes and I lack the knowledge and understanding required to cram it into the size limit. So, here it is on Soundcloud instead. Enjoy!

Discreant (the band I do vocals for) is proud to announce Community Standards, our first EP, coming out on April 20th as digital download and cassette! Go listen to the preview track, "Dog on a Leash", and preorder the EP at

I broke luamin.

Turns out that if you create a table like i={thing=thing} and then later refer to thing as i["thing"], that confuses the hell out of luamin.
