Codemancer in the Showcasecase

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Codemancer is a fantasy adventure about a young girl named Aurora, who must learn the ways of magic in order to rescue her Father from an evil Sorcereror. However, the way Magic works in Aurora's world is the same way that Programming works in ours. Codemancer is an educational game for 6-12 year-olds (especially girls) which teaches the magic of Code. \ \ An additional 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 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 will be available for Mac, PC and Tablets. We plan to Showcase the PC version at GLS.
