GET YOUR FREE COPY!
The Rabbids invade space, and in true Rabbids-style, turn your spaceship upside down! Using blocks of code, you need to give them instructions to clear up the mess they have created. This free educational game is aimed for players from the age of 7 and upwards.

Some Info here

Ubisoft announced that Rabbids Coding, a game designed to introduce the basics of coding, is now available for free on Uplay for Windows PC. In Rabbids Coding, the mischievous Rabbids invade a spaceship and make a mess. Players have to clean it up by entering programming commands into the spaceship’s operating system. Players of all ages will learn the basics of programming and algorithmic logic, the building blocks of coding.

Thanks to chollometro

Mod: Not moved to free software forum on the basis it might not be free forever (although it's likely to be the case). Marked as long running deal, post also not suitable for re-posting in the future (even after 6 months).

    Thanks OP! Gonna send this link to laid off HuffPo/BuzzFeed ‘journalists’.

  • Loaded it up and it's got polish and looks great. Rare that devs produce quality educational games for free in this age. Even rarer doing so using established cross-media licensed IP like Rabbids. Perhaps its for cross-promotion or just promoting Uplay as a platform to new users, but full credit to Ubisoft for producing this unique initiative.

    • Any benefits to older people playing? I already have some coding knowledge but would be pretty cool to learn something new via gameplay.

      • learn the basics of programming and algorithmic logic

        It's not programming as such, it's the fundamentals and basics to help kids understand how things are sequenced etc.

        I tried the first two levels quickly. I think if you've already got some basic programming understanding it's not going to be helpful. Good maybe just for some basic problem-solving.

        Great for kids and really good to see a company releasing something like this.

  • Thanks OP. Youtube video looks great.

  • Well the rabbids are raving…so they probably use tabs rather than spaces.

  • Good for kids, not so much for adults. Looks to be very basic, still great tool to get kids into coding. Scratch would serve a similar purpose, possibly to continue on from this as it looks like this has only 35 or so levels.
