Hardware entity

Requires or supports any type of a keyboard type controller.

Primarily when keyboard is unusual, but also for other cases where keyboard is the primary or only controller used (unless it is the only controller available on the platform).

Such as, Win3.1 and Win32/64 are often perceived as keyboard+mouse platforms, but there are games where only one of the controllers is actually used, or the other only intermittently.

The first Keyboard video game was released in 1954.

Infocom, Usborne Publishing and Creative Computing Software published most of these games.
