while the topic makes next to know sense im asking for help
i have some encrypted text from a very old game called perplexcity and i want to crack it i know the key is 8 characters but i have no idea how to modify or write a program to brute force it using well gpus

it stands to reason that the bitcoin miners work on a similar basis i was hoping  someone might be able to help me out

the text  looks likes hex code and ill transscribe it in a moment but the top has 64/12/8 above the block and 5 cows on the bottom
the card was called the 13th labor

text block begins :

69 A9 3A FD C5 AD 43 8F 48 53 56 0F
1D 35 3A 8C 5C 44 A6 90 1B 76 46 C7
65 53 C8 A1 E4 B0 40 41 85 2B B7 81

A0 BB E2 A9 6A 52 D1 CB 2B 83 DE D8
BF EC 20 11 70 71 AA 22


any help would be appreciated
this card was solved via brute force solution a few years ago but the answer was never revealed

Bitcoin miners use SHA256 function. Not much of that can be reused for other brute forcing purposes.

What encryption it uses? 8 characters are 64-bit key. Might be brutable on modern hardware.
