A Reddit user embarked on a particular task of creating a PC Building Simulator. This is an interesting experiment that proposes to set up a computer part by part. The current project is in the pre-alpha phase, so there is still a long way to go, but the developer is inviting all forum users to try it out for free to find bugs and make recommendations. Those who are interested can download the pre-alpha of PC Building Simulator at this link.

For now we only find a tutorial explaining the mechanics that go from putting the standoffs of the motherboard, placing the processor, thermal paste and connect the cables of the source. In addition, Claudiu (the creator of the simulator) commented that he has planned a career mode for the title.

“The purpose of the game is to try to teach people about building PCs, but in a fun way at the same time,” said Claudiu.

I know some of the components don’t make sense as choices today, but I have mainly focused on getting everything to work and better and more numerous 3D models will come in the future.

Feel free to leave here any suggestions you may have, things you’d like to see in the game in the future and any bugs you encounter. I will use these to improve future versions of the game and hopefully I will, at some point in the future, have a full game for everyone to enjoy.

Judging by the menus, it looks like there’s a full career mode planned, presumably where you’ll try to eke out a living as a custom PC builder, accepting incoming purchase orders and assembling rigs for your customers.
