|A Dark Room (ESHOP Game) Includes A Hidden Ruby Interpreter|

Amir Rajan the author of the official licensed game A Dark Room which is available on the Nintendo ESHOP has revealed that he included a hidden Ruby interpreter in the game which allows you to program and run your own custom code. Amir including a Ruby interpreter in his game more than likely is a way to publicize the DragonRuby Game Toolkit which allows you to create create complex 2D games using the Ruby programming language.
While you can use A Dark Room as a way to program and run homebrew on the Nintendo Switch without having to hack it (which is pretty cool by itself) there are some that think that by rummaging around in the userland restricted code they might be able to find a way to fully exploit the Nintendo Switch. Will this happen? Only time will tell.
Oh, and about the actual game ...
