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.

@amirrajan the browser version is very good for time killing, my respect

@vaartis yep! The Switch version is highly tuned for "active" play. Pacing is different and there is a much much deeper narrative (since it's assumed that the player is more attentive).

There is always a non-trivial decision to make or task to do on the Switch version.
