Since its launch nine years ago, The Elder Scrolls: Skyrim has been ported to the vast majority of contemporary game consoles. However, despite Bethesda’s apparent affinity for making Skyrim playable on as many different machines as possible, I don’t think anybody could have guessed that it would eventually arrive on pregnancy tests.
If you were one of a select few who did anticipate Skyrim’s strange compatibility with this type of port, though, you’re in luck. Thanks to a programmer on Twitter named Foone, you can play through the opening sequence of Skyrim on a standard pregnancy test now.
Check out the tweet below.
This isn’t the first game Foone has built a pregnancy test port for – they also made Doom playable on pregnancy tests, adding them to a long list of devices capable of running John Romero’s iconic FPS, including digital cameras from 1998 and Samsung smart fridges.
Anyway, Foone notes that their pregnancy test ports are just a prototype right now – however, once they’ve figured out how to build more robust versions, they’ll post a handy how-to guide for anyone who wants to give it a go themselves. And let’s be real – who wouldn’t want to port their favourite games to pregnancy tests?
What Foone has revealed so far, however, is that only the shell of the original device remains intact – the CPU and screen were replaced in order to accommodate for Skyrim and Doom. As it stands, the re-rigged CPU is too large to fit inside, so it has to be hard-wired to an external board in order to power the game.
Technically speaking, though, Skyrim is – at least partially – on pregnancy tests now. So whenever you see “Skyrim is available for PC, PS4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch,” make sure you add in pregnancy tests, too.
Also, considering the fact that leaked prices suggest that the PS5 and Xbox Series X could be a whopping $599 at launch, the premise of playing iconic RPGs on a $10 pregnancy test actually sounds pretty enticing.
