Although this blog has been kind of silent on the subject I have been steadily working at my ascii art based flyer.
I am proud to have implemented sound for this game (a feature that always gets left on the backlog) - in the spirit of the ascii art the sound is all algorithmically generated; no sound samples were used. I've also created three distinctive worlds which demonstrate the general flexibility of HTML, CSS and text in general - all the 'graphic' elements are rendered using text DOM elements.
My final version only works in chrome on a desktop (although it mostly looks okay in firefox):Take a look at the game here.
