Kodu is a new visual programming language made specifically for creating games. It is designed to be accessible for children and enjoyable for anyone. The visual nature of the language allows for rapid design iteration using only an Xbox game controller for input (mouse/keyboard input is also supported). Kodu is used to teach creativity, problem solving, storytelling, as well as visual programming.
Kodu is a way to move children from a passive role as a player to a more creative role as a game creator. This is what Kodu allows you to do — to show that a computer can be used to create something new, to bring your ideas to life. The platform helps children to create games on a PC using a simple visual programming language. Kodu can be used for teaching creativity, storytelling, and programming.
