GENERAL FAQ

What does Poke646 stand for?

The true meaning of "Poke646" goes way back into the early 1980s, when the C=64 homecomputer was wildly popular. In the built-in programming language “Basic”, the frequently used command "poke646,[x]" would change the onscreen font color. Seeing how the Poke646 mod was the first complete game project since my early days in the computing business, the reminiscent title seemed only fitting. 

Ingame, "Poke646" is the name of the organization which has been founded after the Black Mesa incident to handle all "alien related topics", comprised of the best scientists, technicians and military forces worldwide.
