Update #18

Announcement and new release date.

Sorry to keep everyone in suspense a few more days. 

We thought we could announce and release pre-PAX so we wouldn't be crushed with both at once which turned out to be impossible. We need to be online 24/7 during launch to talk to players and open Gamebridge Unityversity with a bang. 

We are recovering physically from PAX and nailing down all the bugs that cropped up with the new level creator that syncs what you build to the server. We're going to ship the new Code Hero Alpha to everyone this Friday. 

Full PAX report and announcement coming also this week! Here is the trailer of the new Code Hero for you to enjoy till more updates and the Alpha release this Friday.

      I have also not been contacted about my backer benefits. Perhaps it was lost in a spam filter?

      Hey, I am wondering when the kickstarter is being sent to my house? I heard it was supposed to be sent in September but it is now November 1st. Can someone tell me what is going on please? Or who I can contact to receive the game?

      Also--NOD32 Antivirus identifies the new Alpha's main .exe file as being infected: "Probably unknown NewHeur_PE virus." Can anyone verify whether this file is actually clean?

      Another month with no news. "Full PAX report and announcement coming also this week!" Spare some thought for how this comes across.

      I agree with Nicholas, but am at least grateful that it's not scrapped completely :). Something is better than nothing - like having something we can actually save~

      I'm disappointed that we've gone from "release date" to "alpha release date." That's not at all the same thing, particularly since what you previously gave us you called a "beta," when, upon inspection, it was only a concept demo. I hope the "alpha release" on Friday will be accompanied by a frank discussion of the state of the game, what remains to be done, and how long things are going to take. I've found the lack of communication on this project extremely disappointing.

      Hello everyone. When can I come in for a little instruction? Also, I'm a little confused. Can this game be played offline? That would be my preference. Can't wait to get the copy this Friday and good luck.

      How do I go about getting it if I've never downloaded it before?

    1 K12 Code Hero School: Give your children more than a game: Give them programming peers that will engage and inspire each other. A parent, teacher, student, administrator or entrepreneurial youth can pledge to give a school of their choosing a special school-wide Code Hero access. All their students will receive school accounts for Code Hero. Teachers will be trained by the Code Hero team to be able to mentor students who can mentor each other. Code Hero School will feature advanced metrics and collaborative gameplay that will allow teachers to integrate it into making projects for every subject and class in the school. Art classes can produce game art for history projects that become simulated historical worlds with math class showing how engineering created disruptive new industries that economics class analyzes for modern parallels [HINT HINT]. Check out http://www.HackTheFuture.org and http://www.primerlabs.com/unityversity to see how we teach large groups of kids already to make and present games on their first day. NOTE: PETITIONERS WELCOME. You can pledge at this level to petition your school to try it: Call them, ask them if they will accept it on behalf of all their students. This doesn't require a school approval process or a strategy session: It just opens the door for a new kind of education through games that kids actually want and enjoy! UNCONDITIONAL GIVING: If you can't get a school to accept, you can give it directly to the students of the school to form a Code Club to provide the power of one good example: a school where every student can code fluently and create games as group projects as easily as presentation posterboards and science fair exhibits. Every state needs at least one representative that will take up this challenge to show there is no state that is not ready to become an economic powerhouse, that there is no district that can't emulate Silicon Valley, and that there is no school that can't become a flourishing entrepreneurial hotbed of student-created startups!
