Computer software Development Community Game

Software Production World Video game

Developed by Zachtronics, this video game places players in the shoes and boots of disillusioned engineers who have work at a unsatisfactory electronics company building laptop chips. The overall game combines code and outlet design with side puzzles, a narrative and a throughline to produce an engaging exploration of the interplay between software and hardware and how computation occurs over a low level. Players use an interface that looks like browser developer tools to publish code and create intrigue for repeated actions.
