Bad Eggs

Bad Eggs is a simple TTRPG tool built in TIC-80. We made it for our home game, and as a proof of concept for other similar tools we might make in the future. It's very simple, and will not receive any major updates outside of additional art and minor aesthetic changes. The code is very poorly organized, and is nowhere close to optimized. Engage with the source code at your peril (it's probably fine, just don't judge me).

Create a New Baddie

Generate a new baddie by hovering the mouse over the + icon, and clicking Goon or Face. Goons are simple, weak enemies; Faces are more formidable.

Damage, Change, or Delete.

Track damage to the baddies by clicking the VIT area. If a baddie has 0 VIT, click again to heal them back to full VIT. To re-generate a baddie, click the baddie's portrait while they have more than 0 VIT. To delete a baddie, click their portrait when they have 0 VIT.

Combat Stats

The number in the crosshairs is the baddie's "to hit" bonus. The number below it next to the weapon icon is the amount of damage the baddie deals on a hit. Switch between melee attack statistics and ranged statistics by clicking the weapon in the bottom right corner.

Defensive Stats

To view a baddie's defensive stats, click the area with the shield and crosshairs. You can view a Face's complete stats by clicking again. Goons only have defensive stats.
