Hi there! For quite some time I'm thinking about making a small text adventure, but I didn't want it to be text-only. A graphic novel is also something I don't want. Then I found the quite fascinating game Santuary RPG and I realized that such a reduced ASCII art style is something I would really like. I would like to do write the game in either Python or Rust.
Now, whenever I google my way around the internet, I find a lot of pygame and Renpy references, but nothing convincing for Rust. And those two Python libs/frameworks seem to offer a bit too much. Now that I'm writing these lines, it occurs to me that I could adapt a simple terminal UI (TUI) framework for my purposes.
Should you happen to know a library that offers explicit support for story-supporting ascii art, please do let me know. :) And if you can recommend a simple TUI library, I'd also love to hear from you.
