DIY Receipt Printer Racing Game!

How would you make video games in a world where LCD displays didn’t exist?

Well, there’s actually an answer for that, use a receipt printer to literally print your screen while you try to make through the maze, as shown on this DIY receipt printer racing game.

No matter how pointless and wasteful this game seems, I am sure it has some good applications to other projects.

The game is played on a receipt printer, a common device you can see at every convenient store. It prints those papers you usually find crumbled up in your pockets, just to throw them away. It is a thermal printer using heat to darken the paper. This eliminates any slowdowns in printing lots of black. A roll can be ordered online and costs around 80 cents.
