Space Awesome!
« on: May 28, 2022, 05:34 PM »
What I Learned Building the InterWebs’ First Firefly-Meets-Oregon-Trail Text-Based Game.

Edward Emanuel Jr. from Font Awesome tells the story of using some down time at FA to pursue a text-based adventure game in which the graphics are simply Font Awesome icons and CSS borders.

I successfully completed the mission, but at the loss of all crew, including a budget kitchen robot that went into a murderous rampage twice.  :(

Haha!  I made it, too.  Somehow I cloned my weapons guy and after that I was able to win every battle I came across.  I was running out of fuel most of the time, and my cook and mechanic both died.  I scored 150,000 in 24 events; 3 died; 2 outposts visited.
