Do they not teach these computer basics (ie - components of a computer) in K-12 anymore?
Maybe it's an elder millennial thing when this stuff was new and they wanted the kids to get a head start or something. We didn't have like programming classes or anything, but we got taught those basics, and then like how save files, how to use a word processor, etc.
I even had a class to teach touch typing and assignments to make WordArt.
I'll admit most of my actual knowledge is from dicking around and seeing what works and what doesn't (sometimes with help from professor google) but the fundamentals were absolutely learned in school.
Honestly, they didn't teach it to me! I'm not sure that was part of mainstream classes for a lot of people.
We didn't have dedicated typing classes at any of my schools except like an hour of computer lab a week in elementary school, during which time we learned how to use the Grolier encyclopedia and nothing else.
But also it's like that XKCD comic -
I think people who are pretty good with computers really have a flawed conception of how bad most people are at computers.
I have had to explain to teenagers what a browser is. As in "okay open a browser - o-kay, do you see a ball that has four colors on it, and when you click on it it takes you to google? okay, that's chrome, that's your browser, click on that" and I think that probably two out of ten computer users don't know what it means to right click.
You don't have to know how file storage works if the way you access all your files is through apps that show you a thumbnail of the files! So people don't think about how files are created or written or stored or recovered or manipulated by the computer.
But to be fair, this is also true about car parts!
Most people don't know what a carburetor does, and could not explain how an ignition system works.
We're all our own little Sherlock Holmeses, cheerfully deciding we have to attain more knowledge relevant to our interests and forget what heliocentrism is.
a list of Inscryption things that have been Confirmed Canon live on streams (spoilers ahead):
-Leshy beams thoughts into the player's brain instead of talking, that's the reason behind the swirly eyes and reverberation sound effect
[Disclaimer: The title is satire. Although the following list contains Daniel Mullins' personal interpretation of the game and characters, they are merely interpretations and should not be taken as official facts. That said, don't take these too seriously and have fun using these to build your headcanons :>]
-Lonely Wizard is tall, but shorter than the Scrybes (for the record, the shortest Scrybe is estimated to be around 5'0)
-the "leaves" on Magnificus is actually his beard (this fact can also be confirmed by looking through the game files)
-contrary to popular belief /s, P03 is straight up a villain, not a misunderstood anti-hero
-The Mycologists' name is The Mycologists
-the Scrybes' favorite food are as follows:
Leshy - fully raw mushrooms, sometimes magic ones (allegedly that's where his inspirations for his games comes from)
P03 - doritos or cheetos
Grimora - liver
Magnificus - pop rocks, sparkly candies in general
-P03 and Leshy are indeed divorced
-the Scrybes are original to the physical card game of Inscryption, not the floppy game
-The Bone Lord is not H!t13r (censoring it just in case)
-the events of the game take place between 2009 and 2012
-Leshy and Grimora are about the same height and are the tallest Scrybes (an email response confirms they stand at about 8 ft)
-P03 is the shortest when not hovering
-the Scrybes' favorite tea:
Grimora - earl grey
P03 - yerba mate (but in cans so they look like energy drinks)
Magnificus - green tea
Leshy - mushroom tea
-Rebecha's catchphrase "woof" is an expression of exhaustion, not a bark
-Leshy's and P03's eyes are twitchy due to stress
-the dead are stinky
-whatever P03's arm crank does, it's disgusting (allegedly generates a wordart png saying "ligma balls")
-Grimora is a gilf
-The Woodcarver is smart because of her knowledge regarding the OLD_DATA
-Leshy is not camera-proof, thus cannot take selfies with his legendary camera or he would get turned into a card
-Grimora is the least likely to smoke weed among the Scrybes, with P03 being second on that list
-the it/its pronouns usage for P03 is not derogatory and P03 uses any pronouns depending on its persona
other fun facts:
-the water towers in Leshy's maps from the beta version of the game got removed due to a bug where they overlap and a lack of water towers in the Act 2 overworld
-the strip club was included in a free asset bundle Daniel got for the holograms' models in Act 3, there was never a plan to use it but it has never been removed from the game files
