Hi clort!
Thank you for your post, sounds like you're an ASCII connoisseur!
It is great to hear you are working on ascii game project too. I'd love to see your progress!
I can give a hint! :)

Regarding ncurses, yup drop it immediately! Simply stick to well adopted escape sequences, that's how AP works (on linux o/c).
Good luck  ;)

It's not just nice. 

This game takes a concept that others have tried (arcade game in terminal/console) and just completely blows them out of the water.

It does everyting so much better than everything that's been done before that it's a whole new class of thing.

Unfortunately, ascii-patrol is not very widely known.  I discovered ascii-patrol only after spending several hours searching all corners of web ascii/console arcade games.

I also want to write a (much more modest) arcade game for terminal: I'm more of the artist and less the programmer.  I've spent the past year and a half honing my chops with unicode block-25 graphics





After some initial tests it looks like i'll be able to make a simple game without ncurses - just ansi codes for refreshing screen and cursor positioning should do the trick for, at least, somewhat modern systems.  I'm a little shocked by how smoothly the animation of ascii-patrol runs even with urxvt, which has some serious issues with rendering speed on the raspberry pi.

I'll do what I can to spread awareness of this ... well... groundbreaking game.

Cheers!

Thank you @gumix! The sound fix is already on the snap package! (In fact it was the snap package maintainer who mentioned to me that he was getting sound only after changing the volume, so I tried to investigate it and submit a patch!)

Great game, congratulations!

Hi there @cmatsuoka
Thank you for adding Makefile & fixing that initial audio gain bug :)
Recently AP appeared also on snapcraft, I hope creator of AP's snap will pull your changes soon.

Welcome aboard!

Right now I guess I'm 95% developer, so 100% is the closest answer I guess  :)
