Human Resource Machine walkthrough - code solutions for Year 29 to Year 41

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.

If you've got a better solution (that hits an optimisation challenge we missed), please drop it in the comments below!

Year 29 - Storage Floor

Objective: Imagine each thing in the inbox is an address. And each address refers to a tile 0-9 on the floor. Your task: for each address in the inbox, pick up the letter at that address and outbox it.

Year 37 - Scavenger Chain

Objective: Each pair on the floor contains: 1. Data. 2. The address of another one of the pairs. A scrambled chain! Each thing in the inbox is an address of one of the pairs. Outbox the data for that pair, and also the data in all the following pairs in the chain. The chain ends when you reach a negative address. Repeat until the inbox is empty.
