If you want a multiplayer version of the game, go to (No one ever shows up and it's lonely here.)

Interestingly, the comic number is 1344, and the 2 4-tiles can be combined to give an 8-tile ‎ (talk) (please sign your comments with ~~~~)

The title text... I guess that's just seeing how regular Tetris would play out on a cityscape? And not a special version of Tetris that used building looking pieces (I guess regular Tetris doesn't look very city-ish to me) Kirkjerk (talk) 11:42, 19 March 2014 (UTC) 12:42, 19 March 2014 (UTC)
I thought it was about looking at real life objects and mentally fitting them together. Then I visited the Wikipedia link provided here and I was right! I won't change the explanation because I'm the first one to expose this in the comments. 02:55, 4 March 2015 (UTC)

8224 is also (16*16*32)+32 and was a common number to see as a programming error on PDP11's in the 1980's when a (16 bit) integer of zero was stored as two spaces (ascii=32) rather than two nulls (ascii=0) (talk) (please sign your comments with ~~~~)

Dammit, thanks to this comic, I found out this game exists. Now I can't stop playing it! Thanks a lot, Randall! 12:08, 21 March 2014 (UTC)

Whatever that site is supposed to do, it doesn't do it on my Linux/Firefox setup. The multiplayer one at does, thank you. PS the plurals of PDP11 and 1980 are PDP11s and 1980s. 10:48, 22 March 2014 (UTC)

Shouldn't the plural of PDP-11 be PDPs-11? 17:58, 24 March 2014 (UTC)
No...that's not a word any more than "Xboxs 360" or "PlayStations 4". The "-11" bit is part of the name. NealCruco (talk) 21:28, 25 April 2014 (UTC)

Yeah, the game only seems to run on Chrome, in my experience. Another interesting link: --Rakiru (talk) 15:45, 22 March 2014 (UTC)

2048 is so close to the weird Hong Kong film about a hotel room two integers lower and the digits evoke the end of freedom in HK (though the preview is so surreal that I can't tell if there is any future in the film or not) But the handover happened in '97 didn't it? This is kindof like naming a movie with 9/11 implications "August 2001" 03:05, 25 March 2014 (UTC)

I started seeing 2048 games whenever I closed my eyes. That was scary... 18:31, 26 March 2014 (UTC)

I started seeing porn whenever I closed my eyes. Then I joined the Fapstronauts! 18:52, 6 June 2014 (UTC)
