This is really cool! Great challenge. I got stuck after working through a couple commands, but I'll come back to this later...

"cls" "echo" "dir"
I see you use Windows. Anyway, love the CRT shader, really good looking simulated console window. (inb4 hardcore nitpicking) That said, the sounds are kind of annoying, and the backspace sounds (IMO) shouldn't play when there is nothing else to delete. Also, since this game relies around text input is very important to make sure your text input is flawless, and it's not. The ability to use the arrow keys would be great, home/end (Since you are posting this in a forum full of programmers) keys would be cool, the ability to scroll up a bit, and most common problem among Gamemaker text boxes, the dreaded #. Before you draw text to the screen, use string_replace_all("text", "#", "\#"); to fix that.

Other than that, it's a pretty cool unique game.

Try with "ls" and "clear" ;)

When you press a button it plays the sound as if you are phisically pressing the button in the game.

Thank you for your suggestions, I'll update it asap.

Thanks again :)
