Endless, the maker of Endless OS, has launched Endless Studios. Matt Dalio, founder of Endless, along with the Endless Studios team have created a series of games based on Linux, Endless OS, and Hack that teach kids to code in a fun way.
The company aims to help kids as young as eight years old get acquainted with programming. The games have been made in a way that would encourage them to code through hacking.
Endless Studios Games is built on a Linux-based OS running on top of the Unity game engine. The gameplay has been designed to spark curiosity among young gamers/coders and boost their confidence in coding.
For instance, the game Midnightmare Teddy involves evil toys that come alive and chase the gamer who can switch to “Math Mode” and use his/her math skills to fight back.
Meanwhile, another Linux game called Frog Squash requires gamers to dodge arrows, saws, and fireballs to avoid getting squashed while crossing a road by manipulating codes.
Other games within the collection include Dragon’s Apprentice, The Passage, Aqueducts and Tank Warriors.
You can check out the games on their new gaming website, TheThirdTerminal.com and play a demo.
