Who am I?

I'm Paul Nicholas (aka Liquidream) and I'm a Retro Game Developer.
For the past couple of years, I have been creating  various games for the PICO-8 Fantasy Console - many of which are “demakes” of popular video games & movies (inc. Low Mem Sky - a PICO-8, 2D demake of No Man's Sky).


Along the way, I also created (and open-sourced) SCUMM-8:
a PICO-8 demake of the SCUMM engine that powered most LucasArts point+click adventure games, such as Monkey Island and Maniac Mansion.

What am I doing now?

I am currently working on my first Indie game, under my new game dev label: RETRAUX GAMES. The first game planned will be a "full" version of my jam game: THE BALLZ ARE LAVA.


I’ll also be continuing my obsession of creating demakes of games that I love. Firstly, an attempt to do a PICO-8 demake of... DUNE II


And - if there's any time left - I'll probably be entering the odd game jam for good measure!

Why Patreon?

I put a lot of time and effort into my creations - and so far, I have made everything available for FREE. I enjoy making games in my spare time, but I’d like the opportunity to do more.

So if you enjoy my retro-inspired games (and only if you are in a position to do so), please consider supporting me so that I can spend more time creating games & demakes for you.
If you can't, I completely understand - but if you could still share this page, that would be much appreciated! 

Supporters can also get access to  exclusive benefits, such as:
  • Behind-the-scenes access to what I’m currently building
  • Early access to new content/builds
  • Various tips & tricks on how things are achieved
  • PICO-8 Help Desk to ask me any of your PICO-8 dev questions!
  • ...and much, much more!

I'm also looking into the possibility of producing physical PICO-8 game cart packages - so, watch this space!

Thank you for your support - it is greatly appreciated! 😁
