Our insane brains. And a random love of brainfuck. They don't mix well together.
What it does
*. Seriously, you shouldn't need more than that. If you do, there's a whole wiki dedicated to it.
How we built it
The interpreter is built in node.js, along with a pre-processor to link brainfuck files together. We used Python scripts to generate a lot of the repetitive code. Finally, the game itself is built using brainfuck.
Challenges we ran into
- Chasing after a missing
<for three hours
- Being an idiot with the interpreter by not matching the loops properly
- Writing 400 +'s in a row
- It being incomplete
- Dealing with American-British spelling inconsistencies
Accomplishments that we're proud of
- Staying sane
- Having something written
- Making the linker and interpreter work
What we have learnt
- brainfuck is fun
- brainfuck is bad
- linkers are useful
What's next for Brainfuck Tetris
- Let's be honest, probably not much. We don't think there's much of a demand for it.
* Not Tetris, because it's incomplete.
