Beta! is an arcade puzzle platformer that requires quick reflexes and a little coding to win! The hero is a lovable A.I. with a problem; he has memory loss. Beta must battle the virus to regain his memory, save his world and discover his true power.
Beta! is a game designed to make learning how to code more fun. The hero explores his world in search of memory and programs. Programs contain codes that the player can enter during game play. Memory enables the player to collect more powerful programs. Players are given a great deal of control including abilities to add and remove game objects (blocks, crates doors, etc.), change gravity and manipulate time!
Through their relationship with Beta! players will learn computer terminology, programming concepts and a language called codePop.
codePop is a tweet-sized game scripting language that powers Beta and his world. codePop provides kid-friendly errors, has a very simple syntax and allows players to play and code in real-time. Beta also includes a private sandbox area where players can create and share levels using codePop.
In this blog we will be posting new features, video updates, Beta Outtakes and more...
