How long has this Project been going?
I started working on this project on January 23, 2018. I stumbled upon a python library called curses which enables screen-painting in text based terminals. I found code of the game snake written for it, played it and decided to make a small game myself. Then I found out about this game jam so I decided to upload my code!
