YO DAWG. A developer heard you liked gamings PCs, so it put a gaming PC simulator on your gaming PC.
You, er, get the point.
Aimed at people who've always wanted to build a gaming PC but perhaps can't be arsed, PC Building Simulator, which was spotted by the team at Rock, Paper, Shotgun, lets you select and piece together all the components that make up a gaming PC, from motherboards to power supplies and graphics cards. The demo video (below) shows that you'll be given a budget of $2,000 to play with.
A Romanian developer called Claudio is the mysterious developer behind the game, which promises to provide players with 'accurately-sized 3D models of components, and accurate interactions between them'.
You can also expect everything to slot into place just like it would in real life, while newbie PC-builders, who perhaps don't know what to expect, will be offered a tutorial that explains components and procedures step by step.
"The purpose of this game is to try to teach people about building PCs while still having fun," Claudiu said.
Rock Paper Shotgun notes that a career mode is planned for the future, which will presumably let you try to make a living building custom PCs. Good luck with that.
PC Building Simulator is available to download now on Linux and Windows from itch.io for the price of your choice. However, it's listed as being in a pre-alpha state, with the report noting that it's still a bit "scrappy". µ
