The idea of the event was to create an ASCII based game in a day, here’s how it look at similar event held in Kraków:
Most of the people attending were developing their games in Ruby, and only 2 teams decided to make them with Java. My team (me and Marcin Cichocki) decided to use very nice ASCII game library called AsciiPanel – https://github.com/trystan/AsciiPanel
Our game was called ASCII Invades and was a clone of “Space Invades” with few modifications to make development a little bit simpler. The source code of our game is available at github: https://github.com/wlk/ascii-invaders and this is the video of the gameplay:
Even though we didn’t won (the event wasn’t actually about winning) everyone had a good time. So thanks to the guys from Kraków for having an event like that in Wrocław.
