"Play" it here

So basically this is a very quickly-done mock up of an OS interface that more serves as a reminder to me to actually work on this once I have time more than a playable demo, but I think it's a cool concept nonetheless. Mostly useless, I know, unless such a thing is required for your game, which is a very unique scenario, but still...man do I love command-line interfaces.

I'm debating whether or not this is worth pursuing long-term as a plugin or something like that...consolidating all the evented stuff into a single file which could be plug-n-play...

Guess I should include some screenshots lol

I actually had something like this in a game before. They're really fun and satisfying to do. Mine loaded up with a command line at the bottom. I used classic green text on black screen, it came out nice.

I also emulated a desktop, once it loaded up, pretty much what it seems like you're going for. This was all before I had stuff written for handling animations easier.

My advice is if you pursue this, definitely don't go the event + pictures route. Go with js and take advantage of PIXI

This is really nifty! Would love to mess around with it, if you do decide to go the plugin route.

Here is an work in progress (unfinished as of now) Music Album i'm making:


The songs are entirely made with this site:


Please tell me what you think about each song!
The game's already out there. Now what?
It has now gotten to the point where I need detailed excel spreadsheets to track where every individual enemy on the map is, what type of enemy they are and how many rooms you need to pass through to make them respawn.

I'm simultaneously proud of my diligence and would never wish this torture on even my worst enemies. :kaoswt2:
Variation two of my nameless protagonist- now with color!!
