Lost in the Jungle
Welcome, traveler! This is a silly little adventure game of the resource management / survival variety that can be played on a coffee break. It runs in text-mode and only needs the number keys for input.
How to play
Get a move on every time you have the chance, but don't neglect rest, or your health. The game hints at how close you are to safety (watch for the jungle growing less dense) and tells you when you're starting to get tired. That happens more easily when you're hurt. Persist, there's an end to the journey.
Hidden command: pressing Escape or 0 (zero) in any menu interrupts the game.
There should be two different versions of the game included with this file:
- one that can run on a teletype;
- another that needs a modern terminal emulator with optional color support.
To build the game yourself, you'll need a compiler for the Nim programming language from nim-lang.org, which in turn requires a working C compiler.

Lost in the Jungle is open source under the MIT License. See the included file for details. For questions and feedback, you can find me on IRC, in the #ctrl-c channel of tilde.chat, or as @notimetoplay on the elekk.xyz Mastodon instance.
Color mode assumes a white-on-black terminal, and glitches if the defaults are reversed.
The game can be very random and that's been known to annoy some players.
Gameplay is also somewhat repetitive due to few different encounters.
