Ubisoft announced a free educational game Rabbids Coding, which aims to teach young (but also adult) people the basics of programming. The title will feature the characters from the Rabbids series (it includes such productions as Raving Rabbids: Alive and Kicking, Rabbids: Adventure Party and Rabbids Big Bang).
The task of the player in Rabbids Coding will be to clean up a spaceship captured by the eponymous Rabbids. We do this by giving them commands formed from instructions selected from the menu and scattering pieces of sausage in specific places to make them move around. The whole thing is to be quite simple and enable learning at any pace - without excessive stress.
"The game doesn't require any previous knowledge of coding at all; instructions are simple and can be dragged from a menu, placed in order, and tested with the play button. Didn't get the results you were expecting? Don't worry, just see where it went wrong, move some things around, and try again!," as the devs describe their title.
Rabbids Coding will debut on October 8, this year, only on PC. The title will be available for free download on Uplay.
