"‘Codemancer’ is an educational game designed for 6 to 12-year-olds (but fun for grownups, too) that teaches the magic behind programming. Players will code their way through a fantasy world full of rival sorcerers and their minions. The 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’ features a moving story about a girl trying to grow up and do good despite incredible obstacles. Aurora’s Father’s life is in her hands, and that’s a lot of pressure for a child just learning to be independent."
