Zachtronics continues its domination of the programming/puzzle market with their latest game SHENZHEN IO. While the game is currently in Early Access, the design is all done, and just like advanced play of their games, all that’s left is refinement.
And also just like their previous works, this is a game that you will either love or hate, depending on what you think of programming.
#4 is the next game from this studio that is all about challenging puzzle games where there is never one perfect solution.
Tomorrow Corporation along with 2D Boy are the creators behind some very interesting games that combine gameplay, aesthetic and storytelling into something else. Their previous games World of Goo and Little Inferno were interesting puzzle games and Human Resource Machine takes things a step further, by combining assembly language programming with office life.
I’m starting to believe that fan of the site and frequent podcast guest Zach Barth of Zachtronics is trying to drive me crazy. Spacechem is a game that I refer to as my “white whale” thanks to its challenging puzzle solving and I swear that Infinifactory has caused my brain to overheat. With his latest game TIS-100, Zach has gone way retro with a game literally about assembly line programming.
