Title: Mys
Post by: _iPhoenix_ on February 11, 2018, 07:11:30 pm
Mys is a programming language.


But it is also a challenge.


No documentation is provided. You have to make a "Hello, world!" program, producing that exact text (it's possible in under 200 characters.). If that is achieved, you can see the challenge progression below.


Trying to deobfuscate or debug the source code is cheating, and sharing large amounts of Mys syntax secrets ruins the fun for all future users. The point of the language is for new users to discover things for themselves. Don't ruin it for others. If you don't like that, then stop using Mys and ignore this thread.



You should submit your source here (https://goo.gl/forms/aLqKzsJaF54SBiBP2) if you accomplish a challenge. Do not post it, because then people might figure out the syntax. (Hopefully you understand the point of Mys by now. The syntax is supposed to by a mystery)

Challenge progression list available here! (https://legend-of-iphoenix.github.io/Mys/challenges.html)
Completed Challenges (https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1-9wV0dQFavWaymWsuEeQLrW9NkG5wSrWx_8kf0gQRHc) (spreadsheet)


Have fun. Link to interpreter (https://legend-of-iphoenix.github.io/Mys/)

If you are stuck, use a hint (https://legend-of-iphoenix.github.io/Mys/hints).

Found a bug? PM me your source and the output :)

Yeah, this one is tough.

I added some hints because sending people into the wild was.. rough.

People are gaining a foothold, though, and they seem to be enjoying it.

Also, Mys not only stands for mystery, but it also describes the hit-and-miss tactics being used.

I added a bunch of new commands, and a few new challenges, too! You can find documentation for the commands here (https://legend-of-iphoenix.github.io/Mys/abyss/).

Your chances of discovering something useful in the language has essentially been doubled. (well, not quite, but I like the figure)

Because of these new changes, the smallest submission to certain challenges might not be the smallest anymore, so you might want to try to beat those and get it as small as you can!

If you have a good idea for a challenge, you can suggest new challenges to me here (https://goo.gl/forms/HhalENFoa74Thow52)! New challenges have to be doable, so you have to provide a working solution with your challenge.

Additionally, juju2143 created an awesome favicon. It's oddly cute, so it currently graces my Cemetech signature in all of its mystical glory. I added some links to his social media accounts to the about page.

I have no idea how I managed to create something this cute in 4 minutes.

What's really funny is that I don't know what's so cute or likable about it.

The :3= is cute partially due to its oversized tusks and eyes.


The Mys thingie is just... good.
