New Guide: Infinite Text Adventure with CircuitPython & OpenAI
Jepler has posted up their new guide, “Infinite Text Adventure (with CircuitPython & OpenAI)”
In this guide, you will learn how to use OpenAI’s “chat” API to generate an endless text adventure game on the PyPortal family of devices; the PyPortal Titano is recommended for its larger screen.
By providing a suitable prompt to OpenAI, it will offer a fictional adventure where the next choice can be made on the PyPortal touchscreen. This choice, along with some of the previous text, is fed back to the API to get the result of the action. Because of the random factor in the text ChatGPT generates, and the branching choices, it’s unlikely that two games would ever be the same.
If the “Zorque Mansion” scenario doesn’t interest you, create a scenario of your choice by writing a sentence or two in natural human language describing it; no complicated coding is needed to tell a sci-fi story instead, or even to play in French instead of English!

Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
