Hi everybody,

I recently wrote a python script to play snake in 4 spatial dimension:

The code is open source, so if you want you can have a look at it...
I'm still a bit struggling since I don't use a graphic accelerator it get slow after a while.

I'm a fan of 4d gaming, and I wanted to discuss with you what would be the best way to bring the 4d gaming at a new level...

citing the creator of the 4dmaze, Urticator:
That hasn't happened yet, unfortunately. I can move around pretty well, and reorient myself when I get disoriented, and I understand many aspects of the maze world in an abstract way, but I still can't put it all together in my head.


so for humans is possible to orient in a 3d projection of a 4d solid :D

what would be the best game?

here is a list of 4d games:

Very cool. Should probably be moved to a different subforum though.

I wrote a new version of the game, now is written in C++ and OpenGL.
Moreover I did a little video explaining how to play the game.
Maybe understanding how to play it, it will be more clear what the game is about, and maybe it could help in understanding the 4th dimension better.
