Well, you may think that I am forty-something, but I couldn't possibly comment.

Factorio is a great logical tool for kids ... I tend to think that it "feels" like programming in an odd sort of way, so if you are intending to be an engineer, it will be great brain training.

here is a hint. my first computer had 128KB of RAM. :P
I got you beat. Mine only had 64k, no HDD, not even a floppy drive when we got it, just ran on tapes and cartridges. Man I miss that Commodore64.

And, I'm 38.
First time I'm seeing a "mine is smaller than yours" contest :mrgreen:
Hah. You just don't spend enough time around older computer folks. I'm not sure if I can technically say that this alone was my first computer, compared to the far end, but ... technically, I'm not sure it actually had RAM, as such: https://terminals-wiki.org/wiki/index.php/TeleVideo_922

27,
This game is suitable for all ages. I'd rather see people playing Factorio than Fortnite.

My first computer had 16k and a clock speed of 1mhz, had to plug it into a TV for its display and cassette tapes for storage.
