Text-based adventure games have a classic appeal. While they have been around for decades, they have resurfaced for devices like smart watches that are perfect for games that require only reading and simple interactions. We decided to teach people how to code by building a text-base game to keep the focus on writing real code to build their own app from scratch. HelgaJS keeps the focus purely on logic and game design. This approach allows people to build a game after only a few hours of hands-on study.
Using HelgaJS requires only a text editor and a web browser (an internet connection is only needed to download the source files once). Its intential barebones design helps remove many obstacles that prevent people from coding. Powered mostly by imagination, the HelgaJS game engine provides a fun and simple way to access the lucrative world of coding.
The HelgaJS game engine is open-source and hosted on Github, fork it today!
