Skyrim has been played on many formats and one fan found another option. He managed to transport the game onto the tiny screen of a keyboard – but one cannot speak of a good gaming experience.

The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim

Skyrim on a keyboard

Reddit user Mr_Murdoc must have taken a while to do it, but he did it, the iconic opening scene of Skyrim on one OLED screen of a keyboard to play. He used a "SteelSeries Apex7 TKL" keyboard.

According to him, the game runs on a connected computer. Using a script from GitHub the user's desktop screen is reflected on the keyboard's OLED screen.

Not only does he now offer Skyrim, Minecraft also seems to work on his keyboard.

Twitter user used pregnancy test

This isn't the first time Skyrim has played on various objects. Twitter user foone, for example, used a pregnancy test to guide players through the game's opening scene. The classic Doom is also known for to be compatible with a wide variety of devices.

It probably won't be the last time fans come up with crazy ideas. Although it has its charm, the game is probably more fun on a real screen.
