7,459 backers pledged $170,954 to help bring this project to life.



We raised $170,954 with 7459 backers which combined with our direct sales on the store and private donations puts us at over $200K in total funding! This will be enough to start building Code Hero into a DRM-free offline friendly single-player game AND a multiplayer MMO where everyone can learn to code, create and play together!

We will continue to publish Updates about the progress of Code Hero on Kickstarter and via Email Updates as we release new versions of the game and have news on the shipping of your rewards.

If you're seeing this before you got a chance to pledge, you haven't missed your opportunity to participate!

For those who missed the Kickstarter, you can now continue to buy Code Hero on our store! 

We will continue to honor the same pledge levels as on the Kickstarter, so you haven't missed out on becoming an intern, the 1K12 Code Hero School package or the $1776 Senator & Congress Challenge chance for a public official to get Code Hero for a whole state!

We welcome you to our main site:

Goodbye buggy prototype & programmer art,

We will be announcing our plans for the next big beta releases soon! Expect a big leap in quality as founder Alex's programmer art gets replaced by the work of the amazing Farbrauscher Gizmo and the code gets rewritten from the ground up by our new team of elite code ninjas.
