A fast-paced arcade game, entirely in CLI

Post by dta_informaatica »

QEYS is a really fun independent game that is 100% POSIX, with extreme replayability and runs both on Windows and on Linux. It is reminiscent of the olden text-games on DOS and UNIX, but with a much higher pace to its gameplay. You'll require twitch movement and it will take some practice before you can truly beat the game.
You can find it on Itchio: https://dta-informaatica.itch.io/qeys

What are your thoughts on it? Do you know any similar game released on an older OS?

Can't even figure out what it's supposed to be, a cardgame or just number counting?

It's an experimental game! You should give it go, it's well worth it. You'll understand it after playing through the game and reading the short manual it comes with.

Sounds like a pig in a poke deal to me.
