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.

> hackers exploiting switch trough this game

don't they already have full unpatchable control through Nvidia Tegra BootRom?
@rin @amirrajan nintendo is said to release newer switch models so it could be patched, and current method is somewhat inconvenient.

@hj @rin stop with the knee jerk FUD. I've researched this. And again, let me worry about that. You go build cool stuff on the device. K?

@amirrajan @rin it's nintendo we're talking about. I'm not spreading FUD, but my switch got banned from all online services including e-shop for running CFW once for like 5 minutes and playing shareware DOOM on it :^)

@hj @rin friend. Take. A. Look. At. Fuze.

And again let me worry about this. You don't have to.


@hj @rin I'll take that as "I stand corrected. Sorry".
