Hi MorrisElHelou! It's 560 characters of code, so the amount of code that can fit in two tweets. We recommend using PICO-8 or TIC-80 for this jam, since you can get started with very little code. You can also check out this curated list of fantasy consoles to use a different program, if you'd like!

For instance, here's an example I made a year ago: https://eggnog.itch.io/crypt

::z::x,y,n,u,b=9,7,1,0,btnp
function e()return flr(rnd(13))*8+7
end
function o()l={}c={}m,p,t=-9,e(),9+n
for i=1,n*3 do
add(l,{c=8+i%2,x=e(),y=e()})add(c,{c=8+i%2,x=e(),y=e()})end
end
o()::_::cls()i,j=x,y
if(b(0))x-=8
if(b(1))x+=8
if(b(2))y-=8
if(b(3))y+=8
for v in all(l) do
?"▥",v.x,v.y,v.c
end
for v in all(c) do
?"★",v.x,v.y,10
if(v.x==x-2 and v.y==y)u+=1del(c,v)
if(#c<1)m=e()end
rect(1,0,121,112,9)
?"★"..u.." ⧗"..ceil(t),1,118
?"☉",m,p,11
q=pget(x,y+1)
if(q==9)x,y=i,j
if(q==8)t-=.2
if(q>10)n+=1o()
?"#",x,y
if(t>0)t-=.03flip()goto _ else goto z

Thanks! Silly question: do newlines  count as characters towards the limit?

Not a silly question at all! Since new lines count as a character in a tweet, yes, they count toward your character count!
