The sequel to Human Resource Machine is coming out next week! Finally!
Anyone else been playing this!? I know Zero is too busy being ENGAGED...
...it's fun! It's more Human Resource Machine. Programming in parallel adds a neat twist to it though, I'm not used to having to think recursively like this. Looks like there are way more levels than the first game too, somewhere between 1.5 to 2 times as many! And of course Kyle Gabler's soundtrack is amazing as well.
Finally picked this up and burned through about half the stages. On occasion I will try to get the bonus stuff right away but mostly I've just been moving on when I beat a stage. Wow there are a lot this time!
I really love how they approached this sequel, by having you control multiple workers at once it is both familiar and totally new. Lots of new code pieces to play with too this time. Hard to say whether I like it more than the original or not but I definitely think it is a great sequel so far.
I understand that by introducing randomness there is no way around this but the whole "average of 25 simulations" thing for times is a bit odd. I actually had one that was close to the bonus but I just missed it so I didn't change anything and ran the program 3 or 4 times again and it finally it passed.
But yeah loving it so far. It's the ultimate series for programmers. With that said I feel like the first was already kind of not super accessible for non-programmers and they just made it MORE obtuse in some ways with having to track multiple workers. I didn't even think the first game did super well so I wasn't expecting a sequel but they sure didn't try to make the sequel easier to get into for the masses.
