French publishing giant Ubisoft has launched a Rabbids game to help people learn coding.
The game is free on it’s PC UPlay launcher, and is designed to introduce people of all ages to coding.
Developed by Ubisoft Montreal, the title involves players cleaning up a mess left by the Rabbids on a spaceship - doing so through entering programme commands into the vessels operating system.
There are 32 levels in total, each designed to test users, teaching them various programming techniques. The company said it’s “easy to use for first-time coders” recommending the game for players aged seven and up.
So that users get the most out of the game, all coding sequences are kept short and efficient, allowing players to optimise their programming skills.
“Ubisoft is committed to preparing the next generation of video game developers, and what better way to start teaching them the basics of coding than with a fun and interactive learning experience,” said game director Olivier Palmie.
“We strongly believe that video games can play an important role in learning new technical skills, and we’re looking forward to sharing Rabbids Coding as a teaching tool for all ages.”
