CodeMe Creator lets children create their own 2D platform games simply by selecting items from the menu and adding them to the game area. Children are also introduced to the concept of variables in games; by changing properties such as speed, strength and damage they can affect how easy or difficult each section of their game will be.
CodeMe Creator aims to be accessible to as many players as possible. Many elements of the game have been designed and tested by students with a variety of special needs. Our experience of co-designing the game with this team of students is contributing towards research being carried out as part of the EDUCATE training programme. Read our success story on the EDUCATE website.
CodeMe Creator is also helping underprivileged young people in Bangladesh with training and employment opportunities. Much of the artwork for the game is being drawn by students from Computers Are Free For Everyone, a charity that provides free of cost training in coding, web development and graphic design. The younger students are also involved in testing the game during developement, as well as creating levels.
Build your level, make it fun but not too long! When you are happy with it, publish it to add it to the game.
The more levels you build, the closer we come to buidling the worlds largest crowdsourced game.
You can play the levels in any order. This makes it easy to share your level with friends.
Later on this year we will attempt to break the world record for the longest video game marathon by playing CodeMe Creator. The current record stands at 138 hours 34 seconds. That's why we need as many user created levels as possible to make this challenge more interesting!
Building a level encourages logic reasoning; working with variables; correcting errors as well as developing creativity and problem-solving techniques.
To build a level, children need to show empathy and understanding for another player’s point of view. If they make a level too difficult or too easy, the player will lose interest.
Children will be part of a gloabl project. They will create levels that could be played by anyone in the world. At the same time, they will also be helping to build a school for children in Bangladesh.
