Welcome to what feels like my first “proper” game!
I took the Terminal Hacker concept and decided to build something a bit more dynamic.
Retro Trivia is a trivia game played in a retro style terminal interface. You get to pick from one of 8 categories, pick the number of questions you’d like and the difficulty level.
The questions are then downloaded from a pretty nifty web API called OpenTDB:
At the end of the quiz you get a score and get called a silly name and shown a silly ASCII emote depending on what percentage of questions you got correct.
I did have a few other plans for features but a) an iterative approach is best anyway rather than doing too much in one go and b) I want to get on with Section 3 because, as nice as this game is, I’m really looking forward to getting stuck in with Unity and c) this ended up taking me a lot longer than I originally expected mostly down to the
UnityWebRequest and JSON handling stuff.
I certainly dived much deeper into the nuts and bolts of C# than I intended!
I’m sure there’s many things wrong with the game and many things that could be improved. I would love to hear your feedback so you can play the game right here:
