Day one of LoveByte Tiny Code Christmas 2023. I took part in this last year also, using the prescribed TIC-80, which was a lot of fun, and lead to me doing a little game programming and entering a demo jam afterwards. This year the challenges are the same, and so instead I’m going to use it as a chance to get some more practice in with OCaml, a functional programming language that many of the folk at work use, but I’ve not had much chance to practice with.

So, despite having done the challenges before this year, the results will be just as rudimentary, but for a different reason. Today’s start for example is very basic, but the challenge here was just to get a feel for the Ocaml Graphics library and remind myself of basic Ocaml syntax.
