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. just tried it. one of the best easter eggs i've ever seen in a game :)


@glitch source code to help with your video game making journey:

I've included parts of A Dark Room source in there too so you can "mod" it.

@glitch and if you need anything else added to it, I'll throw it up there for reference.
