Find programming relaxing? Enjoy puzzle games? Comet 64 could be your next game, with a theme and visuals inspired by some early computing devices.
"The year is 1984. All you've got is a Comet 64 home computer and the operator's manual it came with."
I probably don't have to tell our older readers what this is inspired by, with plenty having fond memories of the Commodore 64 and other classic computers. I actually started my gaming life on the later Amiga 600 by the same company quite a few years later!
Comet 64 developer Onur Ayas recently announced that it's going to officially release with Linux support on February 5, 2021 and they also showed it off in a brand new trailer:
- Read the documentation (exists both in-game, and as a pdf) and figure out how
to operate this 80s computer.
- Learn its assembly-like (but not quite) programming language.
- Solve 50+ input - output processing puzzles.
- Improve your solution and minimize your instruction and cycle counts to compete
in the Leaderboards.
- Solve bonus visual grid-based puzzles.
- Discover secrets? of the machine.
You can follow Comet 64 on Steam.
