Lock picking: Feedback

Activities theme

Lock picking involves manipulating tumbler or pins inside the lock and identifying correct positions via some form of feedback given by the lockpicks themselves, very close to being a black box minigame.


Alternate names: Tumblers, Black box

The first video game about Lock picking: Feedback was released on March 20, 2006.

Bethesda Softworks has published all these games

This is as opposed to visualization of the inner workings of the lock, unrelated minigame or completely abstracted lockpicking.

Feedback can vary from sound, vibration on the lockpick, clear visual marker, haptic feedback where available, or other methods.

Usually this indicates more involved approach to manipulating the tumblers/pin inside the locks.
