How to make a QBasic game – A tiny snake game
The background music has been created by me with the exception of the last song, which is created by Skaven / Future Crew. The S3M player (both of them) have been also written by me, though I created them long before making this video.

Microsoft QBasic was shipped without extra charge with MS-DOS versions 4 through 5.
It was a popular programming platform for beginner programmers back then. Even today, it remains one of the easiest platforms to start programming something visual. In this video, I go a step further and demonstrate that it is even possible to play modular AdLib music (S3M files) with QBasic.
