Dear Ruby devs and game devs. I have a crazy announcement I want to share. Please boost.

Last week I released A Dark Room to the Nintendo Switch. Within the game, I also shipped a Ruby interpreter and a code editor as an Easter Egg.

*This Easter Egg effectively turns every consumer spec-ed Nintendo Switch into a Ruby Machine.*

1. Download A Dark Room from the US/EU.
2. Connect a USB keyboard and press the “~” key.
3. Follow the onscreen instructions.

@hj there is precedence for this: take a look at Fuze:

Also. Stop living in this world of fear. A kid's eyes would have lit up seeing this. And that is my intent/motivation.

PS: Let me worry about that. Go forth and create awesome crazy things.
