This project was inspired by Domsson's fakesteak. I added the following features while trying to keep the original project's simplicity intact as much as possible:

  • Support for UTF-32 characters.
  • The ghosting effect of old monochrome displays.
  • The rain more closely resembles the original from the first movie.
