Have you ever wanted to learn how to program computers? Human Resource Machine (available on Steam) will teach you in a fun and simple way! You will be having so much fun, however, that you might not realize you’re learning!
In this game, you start as a fresh employee of a large corporation. You start out where everyone seems to start in fake companies, in the mail room. You start with a very basic set of tasks – move items from one conveyor belt to another. You do so by issuing your character a set of commands. The levels grow increasingly complicated and it can get hard to keep your commands and jumps straight.
This game really does a good job of teaching those without any programming skills, and even those with a low-level of knowledge, the logical thinking which is necessary in programming. I have a mid-level of programming knowledge and I was just itching for some of the tools that I’m more familiar with (if…then statements, please!), but it is still a really fun game.
If you’ve ever wanted to learn programming but found it too daunting, try this game first.
