The words of Actualia and Codia are in peril,
and you're the only one who can help.
....no, really.
The makers of the indie game "Code Hero" really do need your help.
Otherwise this project, winner of the Maker's Faire 2011 Editor's Choice Award, the Maker Faire 2011 Kids' Choice Award, the Innovation Award @ SF Beta, and more, may not get off the ground.

This is...one of the lamest things i've seen in a very, very long time.

When you mentioned this in that kids thread I honestly thought it was just a troll page for a fake game or something.
But...to find out it's real?

Dear god.

Those pre-order bonuses are also absolutely hilarious.

Something like this could actually work, but judging by the video it's gonna be a flop.
I think that if there was a game like Minecraft that had this, it would be incredibly successful.
It would be awesome to code your own game on a sandbox game.

Doesn't the newest version teach Javascript and Lua?
After seeing this video it looks embarrassing, but is this the most up to date version?

    Stayin inside for memorial day. Just like other holidays, most people dont care or think about the actual reasons behind it. For most it's just another reason to get shit faced drunk and spout off hyper-patriotic nonsense. The Trumpers around here going to be out in full force with their trucks and guns and flags making noise all over town. Hard pass.
