We’ve come a long way since Math Rabbit.
This first person shooter arms players with a code gun. Your ammo? Code, but not just any code, your code!
Check out this fun, interactive way to learn video game code from inside of a video game.
Code Hero: Operation FizzBoss
This is like real life TRON — LOL!
As we’ve seen the popularity of games like Guitar Hero, no one is naive enough to think that those playing the game are learning anything about how to play a real guitar. This game, however, looks like you’ll walk away with some tangible knowledge.
Code Hero is a co-op first-person science shooter where you use the code gun to manipulate code. Your code gun can copy code like new items and fire it like ammunition to do new things.
You can edit new code to do anything you can imagine. You’ll learn how to blast the enemy, manipulate the world, and build structures creatively to create the games of your dreams and recruit an army of coders to save the world from rogue AI.
Code Hero recently raised $170,000 on Kickstarter, so it’s only a matter of time before we see Code Hero released. You can pre-order your copy by donating, complete with beta versions as they drop.
