Description

A single bit of computer memory became sentient and decided to escape from digital into the real world. Explore RAM, modify bytes and hack machine code and CPU registers to set it free.

History

Game ideas are a dime a dozen, but great game ideas are very rare. It was through a set of coincidences that I reached to the Rogue Bit idea. At first I wanted to make a game about a rogue byte in computer memory, but after some research I discovered a peculiar fact that 7-th order bit in a byte maps exactly to the @ character in the ASCII character table. As @ is commonly used for the player avatar in roguelike games, it became obvious that it would be an awesome idea to have the player play as a single bit, while still being able to see themselves as @ in the ASCII view.

Features

  • Use power of XOR to invade other bytes
  • Explore RAM and find ways to sneak around other bytes that have the 7-th bit set without XOR-ing yourself to zero.
  • Decipher machine code and assembly language of the programs running in the computer.
  • Invade CPU registers to alter execution logic.
  • Modify data in RAM or program instructions themselves to affect code execution.
  • Escape into the real world by printing yourself or uploading to the Internet.
  • Full keyboard and controller support.
  • Includes achievements, some of which are unlocked by finding secrets and hidden areas in RAM.
