Terminal-based Tamagotchi in Rust
For you zoomer millenials out there, a tamagotchi is a little device from back in the 90s that looked like a small egg with a screen and about three buttons. On the screen you had a virtual pet and you had to take care of it or it would die...
I made this as my first Rust project to see how the language works and stuff.
Right now this uses emojis so you'll need a terminal emulator that supports unicode.
cargo run and it will resize your terminal.
Q to quit. Other keys are on screen.
Command line arguments Options: -n, --new-game start a new game. --help display usage information
- Add actual pet art (ASCII probably) and animate it?
- Write tests (heh...)
- Maybe refactor stuff to make it more Rust-y
This is a beginner-friendly project so if you would like to add some features or fixes to it while you're learning Rust, or you REALLY like tamagotchi (uhh...) then feel free to make a PR.
