Choose your own Arduino-based adventure game

In a nod towards the classic "Choose your own Adventure" books that were popular during many of our childhoods, Wayne Jones has recreated the experience based around an Arduino-compatible board and a large LCD.

The user can navigate through the story using the four buttons on the control panel, and with an extraordinarily large LCD the game is quite readable and gives a good experience. The size of the story is limited by the Arduino's internal memory - you could expand this with a larger board or perhaps reading text from an SD card. Either way, a demonstration of this example is shown in the following video:

A neat project that could also be the framework for other information display systems - of which you can learn more about from the project page. And for more, we're on facebook, twitter and Google+, so follow us for news and product updates as well.

If you're looking for a neat and colourful display to use with your Arduino or Raspberry Pi - consider our 128x128 pixel OLED Module. With a diagonal size of 1.5" and 16,384 colours to select from, so almost anything is possible. Furthermore there's a microSD card socket, and removable tabs on each side which can hold LEDs and buttons:

And using the module is made simple - we have tutorials and drivers for both the Arduino and Raspberry Pi platforms - great for experimenters or those who use both systems. Furthermore, check out the forum where members are already creating modified drivers to rapidly increase the display speed. For more information including our Quickstart guides - and of course to order - visit the OLED Module product page.
