A downloadable game for Windows, macOS, and Linux
A simplified text adventure to play in the terminal, it is about exploring memories using gesture-based communication.
How to play
Run either run.bat (Windows), run.sh (OSX) or ./reminiscence_v0.1_linux (Linux) from a terminal.
Alternatively, double-click on said files if your desktop is configured to run scripts/binaries directly (it should open a new terminal window).
Finally, if you have ruby installed, you can just download the source (Windows and OSX downloads also contain it, but are much bigger) and run `ruby src\game.rb` or `ruby src/game.rb` (or double-click if Ruby is set tup to execute `.rb`).
The game was entirely coded in Ruby on an Android smartphone, using Termux with the ruby package, CodeBoard Keyboard for Coding by GazLaws and Vim.
This is a draft and only has a tutorial.
I started this as a toy project to train programming in Ruby, as it's easier to study the basics with a terminal application than with a graphical application, and also the only way I could develop on my smartphone during commute.
I stopped working on it at some point, but decided to submit it for the Fragment Jam 2019.
Besides downloading the source code here from the Downloads section, you can check the newest source code on GitHub.
