The current set of Code Combat tutorials starts with directional movement and activation of pre-programmed behavior, continues with coordinate movement and targeting and conditional behavior and continues towards prediction calculations.
There is an editor, officially described as "broken". I can confirm that the text editor was slow when I tried using it. :)
All in all, a very exciting project. I have noticed a few possible drawbacks so far:
- It's not yet clear which parts will not remain proprietary. It looks like the excellent humor (writing) unfortunately will do so (legal page).
- The music tends to be too exciting to code to.
- There's a CLA requirement for contributing.
What do you think? Persuaded to work on a HTML5 game yourself perhaps, seeing that this performs okay? :)
