Human Resource Machine walkthrough - code solutions for Year 1 to Year 6

Human Resource Machine is a game about programming. And developer Tomorrow Corporation doesn't even try to hide that fact, like Spacechem or Infinifactory does.

You are literally writing code, complete with loops and logic gates, to manipulate data. You've even got a little memory space to play around with, drawn out as a grid on the floor.

As such, the game can be very tricky for non coders. Which is why we've put together this walkthrough, to help you get through a tricky level.

Right now, this guide only covers the main stages on the critical path up the elevator.
