Just kidding. This time, it’s a game. But that’s okay, because this, like many other of the greatest games of all time, is a game that requires as much brain function as it does thumb function. Today’s project is focused on finding a creative, new and potentially-addicting way to learn a handy skill: coding. Today, I’m backing Code Hero. Their goal: a game to help you learn how to make games. It’s rather meta. I’m a fan.
Programming is one of those skills that I think is hugely important and something I’d love to be able to do…but the act of learning it is a little daunting. I wouldn’t mind a coding lesson in an entertaining format.
For as little as $1.00, you support the development and get in on the BETA version of Code Hero. I encourage you to do so. Come play with me and the 126 others who are behind this project so far.
