What do you think?
use these commands to interact: NORTH = 1

SOUTH, EAST, WEST, UP, DOWN, RIGHT, LEFT, IN, OUT, FORWARD, BACK

You don't have to type in all caps. I know it's not great, but if you have any ideas of how it could be made better, please let me know.

Well I know someone already said this butttttttt

Introducing os!

Yay

Basically what it does is clear the screen, with os.system('clear')
So hook that up to a function....

def iliketurtles(): #any name os.system('clear') #Boom bam pow

And use that after each input, so when you hit enter it clears the screen
Also if you would like you could add text that slowly prints out, character by character(Did I hear free advertising? )
Also BookieTheCookie already mentioned this, but colors are cool
(This is from Bookie's post because I forgot where i put my colors)

black = "\033[0;30m" red = "\033[0;31m" green = "\033[0;32m" yellow = "\033[0;33m" blue = "\033[0;34m" magenta = "\033[0;35m" cyan = "\033[0;36m" white = "\033[0;37m" bright_black = "\033[0;90m" bright_red = "\033[0;91m" bright_green = "\033[0;92m" bright_yellow = "\033[0;93m" bright_blue = "\033[0;94m" bright_magenta = "\033[0;95m" bright_cyan = "\033[0;96m" bright_white = "\033[0;97m"

And yea, theres more stuff, but colors and things like that seem to make every project stand out!

Also if you need any help i can do it :D

@Muffinlavania ok, i'll invite you to my game, and when you get on, you can see how the game works so far, then I'll tell you my ideas, and you can code them out for me.

Pretty cool!

Some suggestions:

  • an intro screen with the title, in nice ASCII font
  • an option to see the rules, as well as the commands (in for IN, s for SOUTH, etc)
  • an option to see like the story behind the game, like what year, setting, etc.
  • colors! must add
  • more scenarios
  • maybe random scenarios, instead of having the same events all the time
  • a part where you fight monsters or something
  • maybe a sorta voice that kind of guides you through the story. Like it narrates everything and gives tips
  • graphics

so yea, if you put these, it will make a pretty cool game! ;)

@Bookie0 if you want, you could code that in for me, and I'll give you credit, when I put this in the "share" section.

@NoahJospeh

Hi,

Sorry, I dunno if I can code for you, besides I don't have much time these days. However, for the colors, you can use this post I made and scroll down a bit for the colors.

I could also write a story/background for the game, just tell me what exactly you want it to be about, and tell me some suggestions/specifics you want inside, and I can do it.

for the rules, I'm sure you can do it yourself as you know the game best.

my discord is Bookie0#7538, you can friend me and it will be easier to plan together.

Tell me what you think! ;)

@Bookie0 sorry, I really dont use discord anymore, it has too many sl*ts on it, and I'm more into gamer girls, and girls that code.

Profile icon
Bookie0

@NoahJospeh hum well you could get discord but only for this, it would really be easier, but nvm I guess. (also discord does have many "gamer girls" and "girls that code" servers lol.

but ok then, it's fine, we can use email if you prefer

@poetaetoes Tell me, were you able to finish my game, and if so, was it fun? Sure you can play it, but I wanna make it fun, something people will want to click on when they see this.

Profile icon
TheMaster7661

@poetaetoes Yea, about that. Up means, going up, like on a ladder, and down means going down, like into a hole in the ground. east, right and the same, and left, west are the same. north means forwards, and south means backwards.

@NoahJospeh this should be in the share section, not the ask. I though you needed help on variables and all that

Profile icon
TheMaster7661

@poetaetoes Like I said, I want help from someone better at Python than me, to make this better than it already is.

@NoahJospeh well dis shall be moved to the share section

Profile icon
[deleted]

@NoahJospeh well as long as it works, its fine. If you want me to help you then suree.

Profile icon

@NoahJospeh also,
you could be like

if (name of input) = str("west"): (function)()

@NoahJospeh In my opinion, you should clear the terminal once we proceed from one location to the other after a correct input.

@HammadZaeem yes i agree. so it looks nicer
