It makes a nice change to see a visual-novel like game.

It is not exactly a game. It’s something to read inside a game device. It is “electric literature”. :electric_plug: :books: :smiley:

I just read it properly…

I agree it’s not quite a visual novel because there are no pictures.
It’s a nice change nonetheless.

I’d put it in a similar genre to “On The Ning Nang Nong” and “Jabberwocky”, even though it’s not quite a poem.

The grammar is incorrect in places, and it could do with some better structuring, but it was certainly amusing.

I’m still trying to decide if “and the dragon and I are married” is supposed to have a deeper meaning or not :P

I think you should have married the bread though, it would be a better wife than the dragon.

(Forgive me for asking but is English your second language? And is French your first language? Edit: Never mind, I think the text after ending answered those questions for me. L’histoire c’est bizarre, mais c’est amusant aussi. )

Gamers go Donkey Kong
What a retro place to belong
is the Ping Pang Ping Pang Pong!!

:grin: Sounds like the Spike Milligan poem Ning Nang Nong.

There’s a good reason for that :P

And the tea pots jibber jabber joo.

As the software is free but I want to buy sushis and a third Arduboy, maybe make some cash selling paintings derived from “The Guy Who”.

The first e-book for Arduboy! I love it!

@JuiceLizard we do have a Classifieds Section if you would like to list your Arduboy related artwork for sale!

I read my ebook entirely whispering, using my new Blue Yeti microphone.
A new handmade title screen was added to the code to celebrate this event.
A lot of poeple complained about that poor innocent 2020 year.
So I thought it was the right time to revive THE GUY WHO NEVER COMPLAINS.
