    Tiles and Sigils

    The world is built out of tiles, which consist of a sigil and foreground / background colors. A sigil is a simple ASCII character.

    There is a limited amount of characters which are allowed as tiles at the moment, a subset of which are passable (can be traversed by a player).

    See the list of sigils below. It can also be found inside sector7557 by invoking /legend.

      PASSABLE
      .|-_,>x<^v¤!?"
      
      ALLOWED (but not passable)
      \* #o+$%&/()=;§:
    

    It is likely that the amount of sigils will be expanded in future patches.

    Terminology

    • The player is a walker
    • The world is made out of sectors
    • Each screen is a map
    • A tile is a combination of a sigil, a foreground color (fg), and a background color (bg)
