Software Advancement World Game

Developed by Zachtronics, this game places players in the sneakers of frustrated engineers who also work at a unsatisfactory electronics company building computer chips. The overall game combines coding and outlet design with side puzzles, a narrative and a throughline to produce an engaging hunt for the interplay between software and hardware and how calculation occurs over a low level. Players use an interface that appears like browser developer tools to write down code and create scripts for repeated actions.
