I've been playing around with PICO-8 again and I really do love it. The design environment is just cozy. I really like the platform limitations, it prevents me from just making assets and helps me focus on writing a fun game first.
If you haven't tried it, I highly recommend throwing them $15: https://www.lexaloffle.com/pico-8.php
Also, you can try the games in your browser for free, right now: https://www.lexaloffle.com/bbs/?cat=7#sub=0&orderby=featured
