    Studio managed to do the impossible: turn a difficult subject that's of interest only to specialists, into a product that doesn't feel like "edutainment", but rather like a touching indie game. [Issue#236, p.37]

    while True: Learn () is a novel and interesting puzzle game that is well worth a look for anyone interested in the thought processes behind computer coding. The comprehensive history of machine learning is a fascinating context, and the quest to teach a computer to understand the thinking process of a cat is as silly as it is effective.

    Don't expect much from the visuals, music, or story in while True: learn() and simply appreciate it for its puzzles.

    Good artwork and interesting subject but "coding" in this puzzle game is as dumb as the manager of your company would expect it to be.

You made a disruptive startup... This interpretation of machine learning is more a marketing buzzword than something realistic. Expand

    IMO the tutorial is totally insufficient for you to be able to continue playing the following stages and simply leaves you adrift.

    The game gives you next to 0 help. The logic jumps are large and the only help in game is a useless ad riddled blog. The game has just cameThe game gives you next to 0 help. The logic jumps are large and the only help in game is a useless ad riddled blog. The game has just came out on PS4 after the PC release 2 years earlier. The videos on YouTube are all based on the PC version and the values are not the same,so some setups which are correct and will pass the level on PC will not pass on PS after 2 days of messing around and trying to watch videos and learn about the game so I can get gold medals. Just to find out it is impossible ... After accepting 3 bronze medals with no real knowledge on why I was failing them (I assumed if I brought better hardware they would Improve if I re done the level but I cannot confirm if that's true because the game is unplayable) I then decided to follow a YouTube gold medal for the level cyber initiative as this one I could just not pass.

    https://youtu.be/6RVxZ_erzpM

    This link will show you how to get gold BUT PC
    Output 0 is 30
    Output 1 is 18
    Output 3 is 30
    Output 4 is 22


    Ps
    output 0 is 34 Output 1 is 16
    Output 3 is 27
    Output 4 is 21

    The value changes of the output windows are enough for you to fail the level even after following a video.

    I then continued for another half an hour to try to get 3 more into the correct output.
    Now since doing that all icons on the screen have gone black you cannot use any buttons apart from the test run, which obviously fails the mission .(unplayable)

    I have closed and opened and reloaded save files for the screen to still be black.

    In all honesty although it was a cheap game, I would like my money back.

    PROS Nice idea.
    If it worked it...

    Cons
    Little advice on what you are supposed to be doing.

    A useless blog is recommended every 1/4 of a second, it would be more acceptable if the blog was helpful in anyway.

    The values have changed from the PC version so even finding a YouTube video will not help you pass the game.

    If you repeatedly try to test run(because you looked up the answer and it should work)
    You will repeatedly fail until the screen goes black and you are just left with the HUD which cannot be interacted with, even upon restarting of the computer.

    I thought the game would help me get familiar or at least have some understanding on coding and was a big waste of time. It's not a good game, more disappointing than No man's sky.
