Hardware entity

Requires or supports any type of a keyboard type controller.


The first video game about Keyboard was released in 1954.

Infocom, Creative Computing Software and Sierra On-Line has published most of these games

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.
