A downloadable game
This project is inspired by how our development team learned to code through making games in Unity, and is meant to convey that story.
We're both software engineers, and we love to code! We wanted to inspire the future generation of coders using a fun and accessible game.
It's a video game, but the only way to move your character is by entering functions into a separate text file. The game reads the data from the file and compiles it as a program, then executes it. By using simple functions such as MoveRight(3) and Jump(2), kids can learn how to string multiple functions together to accomplish a task. And if kids are stuck, they can read the simple english documentation on our beautifull website.
Furthermore, the game will provide feedback in real time. If you make a mistake in the program, it tells you exactly where the problem is. If you hit a wall or spike while the program is running, that's called a "runtime error." By introducing concepts in a simple but iterative manner, we are able to engage kids and adults alike in order to create the next generation of coders.
