The game is available for pre-order now. Please join us in making programming more approachable and more fun for kids everywhere.
Codemancer is an educational game designed for 6 to 12-year-olds (but fun for grownups, too) that teaches the magic behind programming. Players will code their way through a fantasy world full of rival sorcerers and their minions. It will be available for PC, Mac, iPad and Android Tablets in 2017.
The goal of the game is to be as broad and inclusive as possible. A gender-neutral fantasy setting, a female protagonist, a narrative backbone, and a programming language designed for accessibility; these are all ways to knock down barriers that prevent some kids from engaging with programming. When everybody is making technology, the technology they make will be for everybody.
‘Codemancer’ features a moving story about a girl trying to grow up and do good despite incredible obstacles. Aurora’s Father’s life is in her hands, and that’s a lot of pressure for a child just learning to be independent.

"I am a recovering academic turned full-time web developer/part-time game developer, and I'm always looking for ways to combined my love of technology with my love of learning. Codemancer may be a world apart from my previous game development project, a work of historical interactive fiction called The Fever!, but I've been a True Believer in Rob's project from the start, and I'm thrilled to be able to lend a hand in helping to bring Codemancer to a PC near you..."
