My son Ari has a unique enthusiasm for computer technology, coding, and game development.  He spends his time drawing characters, creating animations, making music, researching, and coding games. He also produces original videos for his own Youtube channel "The Flying Creeper" with very little help from Mom and Dad.  The purpose of this Kickstarter project is to encourage Ari's creativity and teach him about self-promotion, perseverance, and a sense of pride upon completion.

Ari will be designing and coding a video game in Click Team Fusion, a professional game design software.  He is raising money to buy hardware and software for the project.  

Please watch the video to hear from Ari in his own words.  We are so proud of his accomplishments.  Thank you!!

Risks and challenges

Ari is 8 years old, but he is very dedicated and driven. He works with a mentor regularly, a 4th year college student in Computer Science at the University of Oregon. Ari intends to work on this game throughout the school year, but his priority will always be his school work.
