Find more information about this project below.
TryCoding is a game to help teach young people how to write code. This is done in a playful way by introducing the players bit by bit to programming principles, while playing through an exciting story.
TryCoding was made during my internship at TryCatch Media in Seongnam, South Korea. I was the producer and lead game designer for the project. So on one side I was creating all the mechanics and levels. On the other side I was checking up on the development and art team to see if everything was on schedule.
In TryCoding players learn to code by writing code. This starts out easy by writing simple functions to achieve things like walking, shooting etc. When I came in there was no clear direction to what kind of functions there should be. Below is the game design document I wrote for the team.
