Spacebar (or whatever button) powered intro scene

im currently working on a simple-ish settlement building game with code i can recycle for my larger roguelite/RPG project. i want there to be a short intro that plays beforehand that you continue by pressing the spacebar or any other key. after that the screen goes to the first room.

Easiest way to do this is to include the extension Basic Screen Effects by Emily Short, which is built into Inform (no need to download anything separately). You can review the documentation for details, but it provides a couple of phrases that will do what you want (probably “wait for any key”) that you can include at the relevant points in your When Play Begins rule.


You can use the wait for any key from the Basic Screen Effects extension.


(what Mike said :smiley: )
