Plugging Hydra into your game

Plugging Hydra into your game

This documentation explains how to build Hydra profile support into an existing game. As our example, we’ll be working with a very simple “game” called Masher, written in Python, which prompts the user for their name, reads lines of input one at a time, and adds up the number of characters the user has entered.

The original version of the game stores the user’s name, rounds played, and count of characters typed in a data structure which is saved to a file on disk using Python’s pickle module. Our goal is to modify this game to store the player’s data in Hydra instead.
