Break The Code 2 is a new browser game that sends you back in time to the year 1999.

The wait is finally over, introducing the collaboration of .Tech Domains and GitHub Education in the coding cipher adventure sequel Break The Code 2 . Get ready to travel back in time as you go on a nostalgic journey through a series of mind-blowing missions and the chance to take home the win.

After connecting a community of over 100k tech lovers with the initial launch of Break The Code 1.0 in 2020, this latest addition takes players through twists and turns of challenging interactivity with all-new ciphers and puzzles to solve.

Set within a Windows 98 OS user experience, players will be able to fully tap into their inner 90s persona, taking on a series of 11 missions spanning four chapters. Each chapter comes complete with its unique prizes with the chance to be crowned winner once successfully making it to the end. GitHub Education has even hacked in some new enigmas, cheat codes, and easter eggs for all the digital sleuths to uncover!

You complete codebreaking missions using your programming knowledge and your puzzle-solving intuition.

The challenge

You have been recruited by CARE.tech, which specializes in scientific research to better the world, dropped in the middle of a high-stakes situation in which an (allegedly) anarchist group has hacked into some satellites. Moving forward through the game you must consider the consequences your actions will have on the world order.

The game features four chapters, each with multiple missions (ciphers), and you have until April 15 to complete the missions.

  • The /g1/ drive – “BoxOfChocolates”
  • The /g2/ drive – “Fight Club”
  • And the /g3/ and /g4/ drives, which you can unlock by solving the first two drives
The Windows 98-inspired interface of Break The Code 2.0. (And yes, in case you’re wondering, Minesweeper is fully playable.)

Break The Code 2.0 is free, and you can play right inside your browser without installing anything.

Break The Code 2.0 was coded by a team of developers at .Tech Domains. It is a sequel to their codebreaking challenge from last year.

.Tech Domains have also given freeCodeCamp.org a grant for us to create a “Let’s Play”-style walkthrough of the game.

In this walkthrough, software engineers work together to tackle some of the missions and crack some of the ciphers. (1 hour watch):

If you solve the puzzles before April 15, you may be eligible to win prizes worth up to $30,000.

The prize catalogue. The scorpion-shaped gaming throne may clash with the other furniture in your room. But it sure looks comfy.

This is a fun way to test your codebreaking skills while competing with other developers from around the world. Jump back in time to 1999 and take Break The Code 2.0 for a spin.
