Python game demo

#1

Post by Rakuen Growlithe »

This was a practice demo to test out that I could make a Python text adventure. There's not really much to do but it shows I can save/load a game, monitor various variables and so on. I am considering using it as a base to make a larger game, although that will probably be NSFW. The biggest problem that I've run into is making it available without people having to install Python first but I have some possible solutions to look into.

If you know Python, you can also take a look at the code itself and tell me what I am doing very inefficiently. Though I should note that one of the motivations for this is to gain familiarity with Python and how it works. So I am more interested in figuring out how to do everything than in loading libraries or whatever that can already do it.

To play, you will have to install Python on your computer (Linux users probably have Python already.) and unzip the file.

You can compile it as a standalone exe file. I've done it

Yeah, I know it's possible but I've been having problems for me specifically. I found a couple tools but they all only seem to be able to compile it for the current OS. So I can't make a Windows exe from Linux. It should be possible through WINE but for some reason I kept getting an error when I tried to install Python in WINE. A couple people gave me other possibilities but I just haven't looked into them properly yet. They also don't seem that simple...

Virtualbox and a windows install?
