Great project. Is the PICO-8 cart available somewhere?

No, not at the present time. If I was to make it available anywhere it would be here under the paid-for source files. It wasn’t included as the code wasn’t exactly great, was just enough to mock something together so people knew what they were buying. If it’s of any interest I could include it in the source files.
