First Person Shooter Game Teaches Programming, Not Violence [Video]
Glitchspace sets up in-game challenges that can only be solved by programmers.
Glitchspace challenges players to navigate their way through a cyberspace world where the only villains are systematic glitches. The hope of this game is to offer people a chance to test their programing skills, but in a more entertaining way. This duo-motif program is in line with trending educational games like Koe, an RPG that improves players’ linguistic skills.
In this glitch-filled world, players have boundless opportunities to exploit whatever is thrown at them. How people decide to manipulate the environment and the objects around them will ultimately distinguish their gaming experience. It doesn’t matter if the player is an amateur or a professional, because the game will present a great way to see just how far one’s comprehension of programming extends.
This game was developed with Oculus Rift in mind, and is available on Windows, Linux and Mac OS X. Though it is currently an Alpha release, you can test out the game and see if you stand a chance in Glitchspace here.
