Software Development Universe Game

Software Expansion World Video game

Developed by Zachtronics, this video game places players in the shoes or boots of disillusioned engineers who work at a hopeless electronics company building computer system chips. The game combines code and outlet design with part puzzles, a narrative and a throughline to create an engaging hunt for the interaction between hardware and software and how calculation occurs on the low level. Players use an interface that looks like browser developer tools to create code and create pi├Ęce for repeated actions.
