Play Skyrim On Your Calculator!
By on January 22nd, 2012

That is, if your calculator is a Texas Instruments 84 Plus Graphing Calculator, of course. Intrepid YouTube user no9sniper has found a way to satisfy that burning itch to keep killing dragons, giants and tons of wild wolves while you are in class (and away from your PC/360/PS3 which is still warm from yesterday’s long Skyrim session) with a homebrew version of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim that runs completely on the Ti-84 plus, complete with lo-fi graphics and a nonexistent storyline.

The game, from the video posted on YouTube, looks similar to the legacy Elder Scrolls games, with simple combat and some customization. You choose your name and your race (Imperial, Khajit or Orc) (Sadly no elves or argonians) and set out on a journey as a warrior into the snowy and whitey world with the greatest graphics card in the world at your disposal (read: your imagination). I initially thought it would be a rogue-like game but it turned out to be nicely designed with some retro graphics elements. Much fun!

I honestly have no idea how much time was invested by no9sniper to create this tiny distraction for class, but it sure as hell speaks volumes about this person’s perseverance! Kudos!
