The digital world is becoming more and more important in our everyday lives. Hell, I work online. You’re reading this on some electronic device (unless you have someone print out all these articles for you and then hands you the hard copy, which just seems odd…). All of these items run using programs. So having knowledge of programming language is a handy skill to have. Well, Battle of Golems looks to help you learn basics of programming while also letting you play a cool game. It’s up on Indiegogo now.
From the campaign:
Battle of Golems is a new crowd-funded programming game recently started on Indiegogo (and previously published in Russia) from young family publisher SIMPLEROBOT.
Aiming for a younger audience of 6+, Battle of Golems uses programming and robotics concepts to direct clay robots – Golems – with the different features and weapons in battle on a cells board. Cards dictate programme for it such as loops, subroutines, and conditionals while representing them in traditional flowchart form. 2-4 players (or 1 with Bots) do battle in 10 rounds while adhering to the structure and unique obstacles of a chosen level from the scenario book. The game not only educational but also fast and fun strategic battle for adult and kids.
Battle of Golems is expected to deliver in March 2018. See all the details, read the rules, and check out the Print and Play on the Indiegogo page.
