Text only game OSS
Arten 22 Apr, 2020
Hi,
So i send my GPU to warranty repair and my previous GPU is broken, but is usable for TTY (In GUI it freezes), so, is there some good OSS game, preferably in manjaro repo which can be played in TTY?
Thanks :-)

Dungeon Crawl: Stone Soup comes to mind.

If you're just looking for classic time wasters, there's always stuff like petris, nudoku, freesweep etc.

No idea if any of those are in Manjaro's repositories.

The interactive fiction games (made popular by Infocom) comes to mind. Zork, HHGTTG, A Mind Forever Voyaging, The Lurking Horror etc. There are FLOSS interpreters in almost any distro, but I don't know if the games themselves are available legally anywhere?

There's is however a classic FLOSS game in similar style called Colossal Cave Adventure. In Debian it's in the bsdgames package.

Then there's also the classic Unix game, Nethack!
