Submitted to TwitsyBot Jam for Emma's bday. As soon as she announced the jam I immediately knew what I wanted to do.

I totally cheated, and broke all the jam rules. I started early and spent WAYYYYY more time on this than was possible during the jam. Also, it's uh... not really a Bitsy game? It's a game that uses bitsy as a graphical interface. (Which for the record, is a horrible misuse of Bitsy that I generally do not recommend).

I really love @cavern_caravan by @skeleton_hugs. It just has such a wonderful theme, and I found myself making up narratives and characters to fill in the details of the tweets. It's my favorite twitter bot. I also love Oregon Trail. "I should combine those two!" I thought. "That shouldn't take too long!" (I was very wrong, but I love what I've come up with.)

Currently, the game is an elaborate slot machine. Or maybe, a game of plinko. After you create your caravan, you can only hope for the best. I plan on continuing working on this after the jam, hopefully adding more player choice/agency.

(If you find bugs/weirdness, and you can grab the javascript console errors and send that to me, then I love you.)

@skeleton_hugs also recently shared the source code to the twitter bot, so I now have a mountain of lore to mine for content! Blessed be the Deep Saints!

Made possible with lots of hacks from Sean, a tiny font from Sarah, and Borksy, from me.
