On windows just use cygwin, hope it will work

To start the game just write "./bashplore" without quotes on a shell [terminal for macos]

News: BenHem get a crash under osx and i found that you must set terminal to use bash instaed of login
Just do this in 10.5: preferences -> start -> check command and write /bin/bash
Just do this in 10.4: preferences -> check execute this command and write /bin/bash

"... but it seemed a little buggy ... " Any crash report?
"... I couldn't hit the rats, they just stood there and got in my way. ..." just use 5 to fight and not move [dunno if bug or feature 8p ]
" ...I also only ever saw rats and clubs, which made things kind of repetitive - it looks like there was maybe meant to be more stuff though? ..." YES, FOR SHURE!! just kill some rats and descend the stairs!!!!! 8pppppp

I couldn't get it to work on Mac OSX. :( It's a shame that there's no browser wrapped version of this.

Couldn't get it to work.

Yeah... I'm gonna pass on installing some weird linux environment on my PC... sorry!

Quite a feat making a game in bash, but it seemed a little buggy on my machine (ubuntu 9.10). My 2nd playthrough (on the 1st I quit by accident - I'm so used to . meaning wait) I couldn't hit the rats, they just stood there and got in my way. I also only ever saw rats and clubs, which made things kind of repetitive - it looks like there was maybe meant to be more stuff though?

With more stuff (and working combat) I could see it being a decent little minimal roguelike.

(also, it's a bit awkward trying to play it on a netbook - no numpad)

Yeah, I think no bash shell for now. If I stumble across one I'll come back

The map was small. And I couldn't find anything but clubs.:(

ippa says ...

easy install/run is important.. requiring ppl to install bash on their win-machines is a recipe for ppl not running it.

sinoth says ...

Yes.
