Idea by Jan Niklas Bingemann (2023)

Pinocchioverse is a fictional, educational programming language based on the idea of coding with marbles. It is defined by a fictional universe, in which, due to the natural laws of the universe, programs can be “built” with marble runs.

I’m in love with these projects that merge esolangs, worldbuilding and programming. There are very few of those around, and I’ve recently stumbled on this one, which I absolutely love. I hope you enjoy it too.

It’s extremely annoying to get promtpted by all these locking warnings when trying to post a thread “You cannot post two links in a post”(wtf?) So, I had to scrap a bunch of stuff I had written in the original post. Anyways… here’s a video:

Sorry about that, the restrictive experience is not intentional… :sweat: What you are seeing is a result of the default Discourse configuration which restricts many features for new users in a (somewhat misguided) attempt to curtail spam. Anyway, I have edited both your account and the defaults for new users to hopefully avoid this going forward.

Feel free to edit the original post to contain whatever else you intended it to have. Thanks for sharing this project! :smile:
