What does it do?

Beta is a game and open virtual environment that teaches programming, analytical, design, and systems thinking, and game design.
Play, build, and share games with friends and Beta gamers across the world.

Why do we need it?

It’s unique in-game coding interface enables you to build games similar to Mario, Mega Man, and many other classics.
Building games with Beta is lightning-fast and very deep built to be both fun educational for novices and pros alike.

Who is it for?

You need Beta if your a gamer, game designer, educator, or someone who wants to learn how to learn how to code.

Players of all ages have enjoyed Beta, from 8-50 (these are the ages of actual users).

What makes it stand out from the crowd?

Similar games such as Scratch, Hopscotch, and Code Combat are good offerings. What makes Beta stand out from these programs is its instant and dynamic visual feedback. The difference is similar to one between an image versus a television.

What’s next?

Monday 2/24 we are pushing a website and game UI related update.

Beta is currently a local Mac/PC app. Web-based integration, multiplayer, mobile, and a gamer-market are amongst the many features we have planned for Beta.
