TriviaEdit

  • The Mikropekka is based on the real-life MikroMikko released by Nokia during the 1980s.
  • An ad for the Mikropekka was included in the Finnish Retro Rewind magazine.
  • A DOS virus can be obtained when downloading any of the TeleBBS games if My Summer Car was not launched through Steam. This is a form of Anti-Piracy measure.
    • After starting any installed TeleBBS game, resetting or restarting the computer will activate the installed virus payload during RS-POS.
    • It boasts, in English, about "enjoying your new computer" and telling "your mother to buy another". It continues to mention malicious loss of data as the virus will format the C: drive.
    • Once the payload is activated; the computer will make noises and a red spider will appear in 5 second loops. After restarting the computer post-format they will encounter a screen which requires them to insert a installation disk. There is no installation disk in-game and the computer will be forever broken.
  • Manual formatting is possible by typing format c: but this wouldn’t be a good idea, as there is no installation disk in-game to reinstall the OS.
  • Most of the Mikropekka games and programs have their own achievements with a unique floppy disk icon.
