    While researching games that utilise an ASCII UI I found this interesting example written in C++. I thought it interesting enough to share here.

      Thank you, this is great. Any chance you’d publish the whole list when you’ve finished your research?

        Would be nice if the README.md explained how to get it running. I’m a little familiar with Makefile, but I’m having some trouble here.

        I’d love to run this in a tmux while wfh this week :)

          You will need basic development tools like make and a c++ compiler as well as git to download the sources and ncurses development libraries. Here’s debian like systems:

          sudo apt install git libncurses-dev build-essential
          git clone https://github.com/cbabuska/curses_city
          cd curses_city
          make
          ./Curses_City
          

          (for Termux on your phone, replace libncurses-dev with ncurses and it works perfectly!)

              Thank you for the dependencies. Got it running.
