Kodu is Here!

Have you ever wanted to create your own game but don’t want to get your hands dirty with code? We now have the answer… Kodu!

imageKodu allows you to build games using traditional programming paradigms such as conditional statements and loops but without having to fire up Visual Studio. Basically you start with a blank world which you can customise, add characters and set up interactions. Multiplayer is supported as is sharing created games online using Xbox Live Community Games.

Its great if you’re just looking for a bit of fun and its also a neat way to introduce children to programming.

Kodu is available for purchase (or demo) on Xbox Live Community Games. You can find out more here or watch a demo from GDC below:
