Telnet games were very popular some time ago, especially this Star Wars movie: telnet towel.blinkenlights.nl.

I wanted to create something in Go, and I wrote this Snake game over Telnet.

Go is awesome in this case, no need any dependencies to build this funny stuff.

Try it:

telnet pliutau.com 8080

go-snake-telnet

Development

go get github.com/plutov/go-snake-telnet
go-snake-telnet --host localhost --port 8080
