Default TIS-100. Anyone tried it

July 20th, 2015, 18:27
Here's how Steam describes it:

"TIS-100 is an open-ended programming game by Zachtronics, the creators of SpaceChem and Infinifactory, in which you rewrite corrupted code segments to repair the TIS-100 and unlock its secrets. It’s the assembly language programming game you never asked for!"

It sounds like fun to me, and the price is low. So I am tempted to buy it. However I am at the moment significantly reducing my backlog, by moving games from the protected environment of my den (the wife is to blame!), ultimately to the official recycle bin in Bergen@Norway from which there is no return . So investing playtime in this, will probably make me throw away yet another one.

pibbur who really would like to see a game based upon a Turing machine, even better an approximately non-deterministic one. The Hidden X will probably know if such a game exists.

http://www.topcoder.com/ they have given out over $71 million so far.

Their competitions are a lot of fun go ahead Joxer, a lot of their competitions are from NASA. Warning… you have to be a extremely good programmer to win though!

I would participate in more of those if I had more time.

But… I don't want to do work for companies that hide facts from people because of radiodramas. NASA.

No matter. I'll check what the site is about.
