IF Aspirations

  • Build a new platform using separation of concerns ideals, fluent syntax, and separate game and user interface capabilities similar to how FyreVM's Channel IO works. A key feature would be separating how text is emitted. Instead of the game engine "printing" text in a stream throughout a "turn", it would gather all of the intended information to be emitted and once the game turn is completed, hand off text construction and emission to an external process.
  • Implement a platform that publishes to WebAssembly.
  • Complete works-in-progress
