@Chest Bot is an interactive Mastodon bot which procedurally generates treasure chest contents; like loot creates in video games without the micro-transactions… 🙂  It keeps track of each player’s inventory and score using an SQLite database. Contents like cobwebs, sawdust, dust bunnies etc. do not stay in your inventory. It functions as a simple game since there is a chance of death whenever you open a chest and if you die you lose your current inventory resetting your score to zero.  It briefly had an “enter chest” command which led to a whole Interactive Fiction game, but I later decided to split that off into its own bot -> @ifictionbot

@chest_bot currently responds to the following commands:

  • help
  • inventory
  • leaderboard
  • look
  • open chest
  • score

Platform: Mastodon
