I wanted to make a simple rpg that could be played via SMS using the twilio platform.
What it does
The user will enter their information on a landing page for the web application. This will trigger a digital dice roll and based on the number of the die it will select a random quest for you the adventurer to go on.
How I built it
I built it using Ruby on Rails and implementing the Twilio API
Challenges I ran into
Originally I had planned on the user interacting with the application and have an actual text based rpg that could be played via SMS. However because I'm using a trial account I couldn't implement the interactiveness. So instead improvised by making a silly quest generator.
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
I managed to create something after my first idea fell through. Also finally got CSS to play nice in Rails.
What I learned
Using CSS within rails has been a struggle for me. CSS in general has been a struggle for me.
What's next for Adventures in SMS Land
I do plan on making a fully fledged app and intend to incorporate interactivity with twilio when I have the finances to upgrade my account.
