This all started when we tried to find a game that would get our kids interested in coding.
With technology transforming every industry, cultivating a passion for computer science is increasingly critical in today’s world.
We looked to games for the answer. As lifelong gamers and long-time game developers, we’ve seen the transformative power games can have. To spark interest through fun. To build deep, meaningful connections. To grow engagement into passion.
We tried existing options, but they didn’t win us over.
It seemed simple: find a game that’s effective and approachable at introducing coding concepts, fun enough that our kids would want to keep playing it on their own, and designed to be safe and secure so we don’t have to worry.
We tried countless options. But our kids would spend an hour here or there...and still opt to play a “real game” instead.
That’s when we realized what’s missing from “education games” — the “game” part. The deep, engaging, repeatable fun part that makes a game great, and keeps players coming back for years.
That’s why we’re focused on making it a great game first.
Great games spark passion and long-term engagement. Building a passion for code is the most critical first step.
When you don’t know yet if you’re interested in computer science, writing lines of code can feel like just another piece of homework. But once you know that computer science is your passion, then every line of code is a meaningful step in your journey toward pursuing that passion.
We’ve assembled a team that’s custom made for this mission — to build this for our kids and yours.
We’ve worked on some of the biggest games in the world together. Games like League of Legends and Plants vs. Zombies 2, that are played by hundreds of millions of players, over the course of many years. We’re bringing our collective experience in creating deep, enriching game systems to a mission that we believe deeply in as parents and as gamers.
Let’s create an inclusive and diverse world together.
We’re committed to making our games and experiences inclusive and diverse. Our goal is to welcome a broader set of people into the world of computer science. To help those who are under-represented discover the magic of coding. We probably won’t get it right out of the gate, but we won’t stop until we get there. We’re deep believers in iteration, so your feedback will help us get better over time.
