Jimmy was really obsessed with video games. Everyday and every night his hands held nothing but a controller or a keyboard with his swelling eyes always fixed on the screen. He's always playing games in every genre and even every damn franchise! He'd even lost count of how many games he had finished in the span of twelve hours. One day as he was walking home from the arcade store, a man approached him, "Young man, can you help me?" The man asked, "Tell me what is it, sir." Jimmy politely replied. The man led him to a nearby bench and they sat together. The man then took a laptop from his suitcase and opened it up, Jimmy looked at the laptop and suddenly smirked when he saw that in the screen was an 8 bit platformer game. "I saw you playing at the arcade store, and you're good at it," The man said, "Now, I'm asking you to help me finish this game my friend made for me." Jimmy knew deep inside that he's a natural born pro, so he accepted the task. He took the laptop and played the pixelated monochromatic platformer game from the man's computer. And it was surprisingly hard! It took him nearly an hour two, but still he keeps on dying and dying. "It's alright if you can't do it." The man said, "No, I can do this!" Jimmy replied when suddenly an idea came to his mind. He minimized the game window and went to the file manager towards the game's directory ; and he was lucky, for he found a file named cheats.zip. He extracted it and a text file came out with a bunch of numbers or a code written on it, 08040120120. Jimmy resumed the game and pressed the tilde key bringing down the console commands and he keyed in the cheat codes. The game crashed abruptly and a text box appeared on screen which states, Congratulations! You've just destroyed the world! The game ended and everyone including Jimmy and the man looked up to the sky as a scorching bright light engulfed the world into ashes.

The Congratulations part got me laughing for some reason

RandomWriter, what is it?

RandomWriter


Yes. I let you know what it is. It's not a big deal though

Inti


What does that mean? Is that supposed to be some kind of a clue?

RandomWriter


There's nothing special here; but if you guess what the numbers mean, that's where you would be.
