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.
@boots yep! Build all the things!!
Here is some sample code here: https://github.com/amirrajan/power-overwhelming/blob/master/kaigi_2019_logo.rb
@amirrajan don't have a way to connect a keyboard to an undocked switch, so no video, but here's a pic!
@amirrajan ill probably play the game, too, since it looks neat, i just heard ruby interpreter + engine on the switch and got excited
@amirrajan tried "$layout.toast 2+2" and...this doesn't seem right :<
@amirrajan (that white blob in the middle DOES say 4 for the record)
