UPDATED LIBRARY: The Python Your Own Adventure library has been updated to Support the Titano @circuitpython @adafruit #PyPortalTitano
With the new Adafruit PyPortal Titano out now, which supports a screen resolution of 480×320, it was time to update the Python Your Own Adventure library. The library has been updated to provide larger buttons, larger text, and take advantage of the enhanced screen resolution. A set of example files for the larger display has also been included. If you would like to learn more about using Python Your Own Adventure, be sure to check out Dave Astels’ excellent guide CircuitPython Your Own Adventure.
Interactive fiction is a popular game style for computers, the game presents a situation and you, the player, must decide which path to take. Historically, games like ADVENT or Zork did this with text only. A modern implementation is the Bandersnatch episode of Netflix’s Black Mirror series.
The basic idea is that at various points in the story, the reader is given a choice about how to proceed. Those choices take the reader down different paths, eventually leading to alternative endings.
You can download the updated library now from github or it should be available later today in the bundle as well.
