Is Robot Odyssey really the hardest computer game of all time?

Robot Odyssey – David Auerbach discusses the game that took him thirteen years to finish and which started him on the road to becoming a software engineer.

Inside a robot

In Robot Odyssey, you played a character who has fallen into the labyrinthine underground city of Robotropolis. You start in the sewers of the city with three programmable robots to help you solve the puzzles you face – Sparky, Scanner, and Checkers. You must make your way up through the subway, town, master control center and skyways to get back home. Along the way the game teaches the basic concepts of electrical engineering and digital logic.

Klondike on TV

Klondike, announced last year will be Discovery Channel’s first scripted mini-series. Based on the book “Gold Diggers: Striking It Rich in the Klondike” by Charlotte Gray. It is set in the 1890s and follows the story of six strangers and their battle for survival and wealth in a small, frontier town in the remote Klondike. It centers on two childhood best friends, Bill and Epstein. Once they hear a story of a miner who struck it rich, they decide to leave New York behind and start a misguided adventure to the gold rush capital of Dawson City in Canada’s Yukon Territory. 

Ridley Scott is the executive producer and the cast is headed by Richard Madden (Robb Stark on “Game of Thrones”), with Abbie Cornish (“RoboCop”), Tim Roth (“Lie to Me,” “Pulp Fiction”) and Sam Shepard (“August: Osage County”).
