A downloadable game for Windows and Linux

A simple hide-and-seek game made as an excuse to mess around with ASCII text rendering.

One player hides in a screen filled with text symbols, the other tries to follow where they went. Player press 'return' to commit to a hiding or seeking position. When both players have committed the positions of the hiding and seeking player are shown, as well as an accuracy score between 0 and 100%.

The game runs best on Linux in a "real" terminal. That is, in text mode.

The source code for the game can be found here.
