The Most Boring Game
Trapdoorspyder (62)

This game is incredibly boring. Please give it chance though, as the narrator does get rather lonely.

This project has been in the making for quite a while now. I originally started it for the game jam some time ago, but schedule restraints prevented me from finishing it in time. I am still working on it, but it should be fully functional.

Once you finish what I have currently created, please let me know what you think down in the comments. I appreciate any feedback and hope that everyone has a fun time playing it.

Thanks for playing!

Minor changes to dialogue
Streamlined content to support replay in the future

v1.2

@Trapdoorspyder That is perfectly fine! I am happy to answer your question. The OS (Operating System) Name for Windows is 'nt' and the parameter you will put in os.clear() is 'cls'. The OS Name for Mac/Linux is 'posix' and the parameter will be 'clear'. So lets go through this step by step:

\/ Starting to define the function
def clear():
if os.name == 'nt': --- This part will test if the OS is windows
= os.system('cls') --- Executes the clear function
/-------------------------------------------------------------------|
|
else: <-- If the OS is not windows then it will resort to putting 'clear' |
= os.system('clear') --- Executes the clear function |
/\ |
|--------------------------------------------------------------------|
|
Just a variable, can be changed to anything and will still work

Here is the raw code without all those tips so you can copy/paste

def clear():

# for windows 
if os.name == 'nt': 
    _ = os.system('cls') 

# for mac and linux(here, os.name is 'posix') 
else: 
    _ = os.system('clear') 

Also, here is a link to a sample project- https://repl.it/@EthanCulp/Explanation-Sample

There is no way to know if this works on Windows, unless you go onto a windows device, but I have used this many times and it has worked for me.

I am sorry if any of this sounds condescending, but I just want to make sure that you understand this and know how to reproduce this function without copy/pasting

If you have any more questions, I encourage you to ask them. (Also, I am sorry if my replies keep showing up in your notifications, for some reason they keep deleting)
